Sony To Expand The Spider-Man Movie Universe With Venom and Sinister Six Films

Spider-Man

Hollywood can’t get enough of superhero universes right now.

Marvel’s got its Avengers movie universe at Disney. The X-Men and the Fantastic Four are going to have one at 20th Century Fox very soon. DC is in the midst of building one at Warner Bros. And now, Sony is going to build one around Spider-Man, with movies focused on bad guys. Namely, Venom and the Sinister Six.

Sony revealed details late last night via ElectroArrives.com, as noted by Variety:

The studio, in an announcement late Thursday night, disclosed that a quintet of writers — Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner, Ed Solomon, and Drew Goddard — will collaborate on overseeing the developing story over several films that will be produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach.

 

The five writers, along with the two producers and Marc Webb, have formed a “franchise brain trust” to expand the universe for the brand — licensed from Marvel — and to develop a continuous tone and thread throughout the films.

Kurtzman, Orci and Pinker, who wrote the screenplay for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, will write the script for the third installment in the series, which is set to come out in June 2016. Webb will direct for the third time.

Kurtzman, Orci and Solomon are working on the script for Venom, with Kurtzman to direct. Goddard, who recently was announced as the show-runner for the new Daredevil series on Netflix, will write and could direct The Sinister Six.
