Entertainment Weekly has revealed the Amazing Spider-Man 2 had made the cover ot the latest issue. It also reports that the sequel will set up a future Sinister Six film that was previously announced.
The film was directed by Marc Webb and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, and Dane DeHaan. There will be two more after this in 2016 and 2018, along with the Sinister Six and Venom spin-offs. While the studio hasn't revealed the lineup, Garfield said he enjoyed the villains Venom, Doctor Octopus, Kraven and the Vulture.
Sony Pictures Co-Chairman Amy Pascal said: "At the tail end of this movie we set up some of the other characters that will probably end up being in the Sinister Six. We're going forward on all fronts.
Avi Arad added: "Villains can be very entertaining. It's not like somebody's born and they're a villain. Something happens and it changes their lives. Some people can deal with it — they become the heroes. Some people can't and hate the world because of what they felt was done to them — they become the villains."
Producer Matt Tolmach said: "Great villains are the characters you remember. There's a lot of us in those people. It's hard to identify with people who are good all the time."
