Before it revealed its plans for Venom and The Sinister Six, Sony set out its stall for the future of Marvel’s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man by announcing that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 would hit cinemas on June 10th 2016, followed by The Amazing Spider-Man 4 on May 4th 2018.
Well, it seems that with the recently announced spin-offs, Sony’s plans have changed and the studio is now looking to release both Venom and The Sinister Six before Spidey’s fourth outing, with producer Matt Tolmach telling Den of Geek that:
“Before we know what we do with Spider-Man 4, we’re going to do Sinister Six, Venom and Spider-Man 3. There is going to be a lot of crossover in those movies. So we’re just not at Spider-Man 4, because we still have a whole other Spider-Man movie and two other movies. So we don’t know yet what [Spider-Man 4] is going to be.”
Tolmach went on to confirm to Den of Geek that the 2018 date will see the release of a Spider-Man movie, although no necessarily an Amazing Spider-Man movie, meaning that it seems it’s a pretty good bet that we’ll be seeing one of the two villainous spin-offs hitting on that date.
