Posted by Joseph Lee on 04.11.2014
In an interview with IGN, The Sinister Six producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach spoke about the upcoming spin-off, including where Spider-Man fits in.
Tolmach on making a movie about villains: "There's no such thing as just a villain. There are villains by virtue of choices that people make but they always begin as humans, as characters. As flawed people; as tragic people. You know great movies have been made about a bunch of bad guys who get together to do something. Yeah, I mean, there's a huge tradition of it. Those are sometimes the greatest characters to watch. A bunch of broken people coming together for whatever reason."
Tolmach on if Spider-Man will be involved: "We're definitely not going to say what we're doing in terms of Spider-Man there."
Arad on bringing the characters together: "As long as there's that one thing in common: they'll hate Spider-Man," he says. "They'll hate him because he's so different from them. But then, you know when you sit by yourself somewhere and you think about it, they all had a different life at one time and that's what's so beautiful about the Spider-Man universe. They have amazing stories if you look at it. And everybody's looking for redemption; they're unforgiven. Would you see one of the Sinister Six starting to feel like that? Yes. And people love it, by the way. They love when a villain finds his way back because we're all very forgiving."
