Another Spider-Man Rumor: THE SINISTER SIX to Reboot Spidey


Following yesterday’s HitFix bombshell that Spidey could cross-over with The Avengers, a new report says Spider-Man is being recast and the Venom standalone movie is dead.

Here are three other rumors we are hearing from the folks over at Badass Digest.

“Sony is going to soft reboot Spider-Man with The Sinister Six, having a new actor playing a Spidey who works with the villains The Dirty Dozen style to take down a larger threat.

Sony is going to put Spider-Man on the shelf for four or five years and see if they can develop any of the side characters into their own franchises.

I’ve also heard that Venom is functionally dead again.”

After modest box office results for Sony’s last installment of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it really does seem like Marvel is doing its best to destroy their Spider-Man franchise. These three different ideas are only an unconfirmed rumors at the moment and BD’s Devin Faraci just adds fuel to the fire that Sony has no idea what to do with their prized character, despite the fact that he has a pretty good track record with scoops and rumors.

Sony has dated spin-off The Sinister Six for Nov. 11, 2016. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing the Drew Goddard-helmed film. And we’ll just have to wait to see if it includes Spider-Man, played by Andrew Garfield or Marvel does actually bring Spidey back into their fold. Meh.
