Sony has been trying to create a Sinister Six movie for the past decade, but has faced challenges due to the lack of Spider-Man in their franchise and the quality of their films. However, with the upcoming release of Kraven the Hunter and the inclusion of Venom, Morbius, and Vulture in the franchise, Sony may finally be able to bring their Sinister Six project to fruition.
Sony’s attempts to build towards a Sinister Six movie began in 2014, but stumbled with the failure and subsequent reboot of The Amazing Spider-Man franchise. The studio’s Spider-Man Universe, starting with Venom in 2018, has spawned several films and has more in the works. However, the lack of Spider-Man and the quality of the films have hindered their progress in creating a Sinister Six movie.
Kraven the Hunter, set to release in 2024, is the first original member of the Sinister Six to get a solo movie. This is significant because Kraven was a founding member of the Sinister Six in the comics, giving his solo film a connection to the original team. Other members like Venom and Morbius joined the Sinister Six later on in different iterations.
Despite the long wait and previous setbacks, Sony’s ongoing efforts to create a Sinister Six project may finally pay off with Kraven the Hunter. The inclusion of Venom, Morbius, and Vulture in the franchise adds to the possibility of a Sinister Six team-up in the future. Sony has been teasing the formation of the Sinister Six throughout their films, with hints and appearances of various members. With the upcoming release of Kraven the Hunter, Sony may finally be able to turn these teases into a reality.
However, there are still doubts as to whether Sony will actually follow through with a Sinister Six movie. They have been trying for a decade without success, raising questions about whether it will ever happen. Nevertheless, Sony Chairperson Amy Pascal has expressed interest in making a Sinister Six movie with filmmaker Drew Goddard, and the success of Venom and the inclusion of other villains in the franchise suggest that Sony is still committed to the idea.
Overall, the release of Kraven the Hunter and the inclusion of other villains in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe increase the possibility of a Sinister Six movie. While there are still uncertainties, Sony’s ongoing efforts and their connection to the original Sinister Six team could finally bring their project to fruition after a decade of attempts.
