On Monday, Sony announced via Facebook that The Amazing Spider-Man will be a trilogy (“It’s finally here! The Amazing Spider-Man is the first installment in a movie trilogy that will explore how our fave hero’s journey was shaped by the disappearance of his parents”). The news does not come as a complete surprise considering the film has already made $50 million dollars overseas and just opened in the U.S. with the biggest Tuesday of all-time ($35 million). The film is expected to hit the $150 million dollar mark by Sunday. Sony has slated the second installment for May 2, 2014. So what’s next for Spider-Man after his face-off with The Lizard? Well, producers Matt Tolmach and Avi Arad could be thinking big . . . real big. In an interview with SuperHeroHype, the two revealed that Spider-Man could be on a collision course with The Sinister Six. The group, lead by Doctor Octopus, also featured Vulture, Electro, Kraven the Hunter, Mysterio, and the Sandman. Here is an excerpt from the interview:
SHH: Do you feel like you need to stay away from some of the villains that have appeared in the Sam Raimi movies? Or can you redefine them within the context of this new Spider-Man?
Arad: Well, not really. There are so many ways to paint these villains, all of them. As you know, one of the great sagas in the Spider-Man universe is of course the Sinister Six. I think “Avengers” did okay the last time I looked.
Tolmach: It’s going to be okay.
Arad: Yeah, it will survive.
SHH: So are you suggesting you’re going to do five Spider-Man movies introducing each villain and then the sixth movie will have the Sinister Six?
Tolmach: It seems like a good model.
Arad: It all depends on the stories that one wants to tell, because Spider-Man is really more a depth kind of a story, we have to be careful how many villains we can service, because a relationship with a villain has to be such that it’s a story on his own. We attempted to do multiple villains–you’ve been there–you just need screen time to do it.
