Spider-Man: Far From Home producer Amy Pascal has once again hinted at the Sinister Six finally making its big-screen debut, but it's a little unclear whether the group will be appearing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or as a spinoff within Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters.

"All of these villains that we now have in our universe happen to be characters that are in the Sinister Six," Pascal noted in Far From Home's special features. "There may be something that happens with that."

Pascal's mention of the multiple villains Sony has in its arsenal seems to once again confirm the producer still intends on making the Sinister Six a spinoff film not connected to the MCU. In fact, in a 2017 interview for Spider-Man: Homecoming, she made a similar statement about Sony's villain-verse not having any relation to Tom Holland's Spider-Man. "Well, those movies will all take place in the world that we're now creating for Peter Parker," she said. "They'll all be adjuncts to it. They may be different locations, but it will still all be in the same world. They will all be connected to each other as well."

Dating back to the second installment in The Amazing Spider-Man series, Pascal has made it quite apparent that there will be a Sinister Six film, but only if Drew Goddard wants to revive his script originally intended for a spinoff within The Amazing Spider-Man universe. In fact, Pascal reiterated this statement about the film nearly a year ago while on a press tour for the Academy-Award winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, saying, "I’m just waiting for Drew to be ready to direct it. I would do anything with Drew Goddard. I’m just waiting for him to tell me he wants to."

Despite Pascal teasing the villainous team in the special features for an MCU film, the producer's consistent reiteration of only using Goddard's intended take on the Sinister Six doubles down on the notion that the villains will make their first shared appearance outside of the MCU. That being said, Feige has recently hinted at future crossovers between Sony and Marvel following the news that Spidey will continue to appear in the MCU.

As for when we will next see the web-slinger on the big screen, Marvel has announced that the third installment in the character's MCU trilogy will be releasing in July of 2021.
