If the promise of two more Amazing Spider-Man movies following May’s sequel wasn’t enough for you, then two villain-centered spinoffs — Sinister Six and Venom — just might.
Announced in December, the planned Sony franchise expansion has Drew Goddard writing and directing the former, with Alex Kurtzman attached to helm the latter. But what will these movies be about? If Spider-Man isn’t involved, who will these notorious rogues go up against?
It would appear we have an answer, at least as far as Venom is concerned. Speaking with IGN, producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach made it clear they think including Carnage in the Venom film is “a great idea.”
“The idea of Venom and Carnage … [we’re] taking it into consideration,” Tolmach said. “Watch out for this Venom movie. We’re crazy excited.”
That sounds like confirmation to us, but we’ll wait for further announcements before officially earmarking Cletus Kasady for his big-screen debut.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings into theaters on May 2, with The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and 4 set to arrive in 2016 and 2018.
