Wait, did Sony Brazil just tease The Sinister Six movie?!

January 17th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Sony Pictures Brazil have just teased The Sinister Six. We think.

The post (below) on their Facebook page is a simple silhouette of Vulture’s wings and Doc Ock’s tentacles with the words “Temos Planos Pra Voce… #homemaranha” which translates into “We Have Plans For You…. #Spider-man”…

Now, we know that the Sinister Six movie was originally slated to be released in November 2016, but with all the news lately (here) that Spider-man is returning to Marvel to appear in the MCU, plus the underperformance of Amazing Spider-man 2, we thought – as did many – that this movie, along with all Spider-man movies at Sony, was dead in the water.

Throw in the rumours the Andrew Garfield is now out of the picture(s) and we have to say, this is potentially a mess.

Is this Sony’s way of giving Marvel the fingers and announcing that Spider-man is staying in the web he has spun with them?

We expect there’ll be more news related to this coming soon…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
