Drew Goddard Takes Control of the Sinister Six for Sony


There’s still a lot we don’t know about Sony’s plans for an interconnected comic book hero world.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to hit theaters early next month, and by all accounts looks like it’s designed to set up the rest of the universe the new films will be exploring.  I’m interested in Sinister Six and Venom movies, mostly because I’m interested to see if they can pull off a movie in which the villains take center stage.  

It’ll be a tough balance, but Sony thinks Drew Goddard has the chops to pull it off with Sinister Six.  The man’s been busy lately, as he’s also currently a showrunner for Marvel’s Netflix iteration of Daredevil, so obviously he’s doing something right.  Sinister six doesn’t have a release date, or anything else going for it at the moment, but at the least we know who’s in charge.  Let’s just cross our fingers it’ll all be as awesome as we hope. 

What do you think of the directing choice for Sinister Six?  Are you looking forward to this movie?
