Were you huge fan of The Amazing Spider-Man 2? Chances are that your eyes may have had a blast looking at all of the pretty effects but once your bedazzlement faded, you were left thinking about the movie itself, which, other than Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield‘s chemistry, was less than amazing. The big budget sequel was the lowest grossing entry of the entire Spider-Man movie franchise, including Sam Raimi’s trilogy. However, Hollywood being the machine that it is, Sony still has big plans for their web-slinging franchise, including a villain led spinoff, Sinister Six. Whether or not Spidey fans would get to see their friendly neighborhood superhero in Sinister Six has remained a mystery and it looks like Peter Parker himself wants to keep it that way.
Garfield is currently schmoozing it up in Toronto for TIFF and was asked by the Toronto Sun whether or not Spider-Man would make an appearance in the supervillain blockbuster. In true movie star fashion, Garfield completely deflected the question.
“I know more than I’m allowed to say right now,”
“I can say I’m really excited about Drew Goddard, who’s going to be writing and directing The Sinister Six movie. And whether I’m involved in that or not is kind of immaterial.”
“I don’t know if I should say anything right now. But Drew is really exciting”
I think most people can agree that Drew Goddard killed it with Cabin in the Woods and seeing his take on the Spider-Verse will be extremely interesting. One of the very few complaints that audiences had with Cabin was the fact that by the time it was released, everyone knew everything about it, and there were fewer surprises than there could have been. Garfield agrees.
“Exactly,” Garfield said with a grin. “Hence, me not telling you s— about that.”
Anything can happen between now and Six’s November 2016 release, so it is very possible that Garfield really doesn’t know much and even the things he does know could change. Is Sinister Six even necessary? Not really, no. Will that stop audiences from pouring into the theater to see the supervillain showdown or will the movie wind up bringing in those box office numbers? I suppose if fans drove TASM2 to a $708mil gross across the globe, anything is possible.
