WATCH: Marc Webb talks more Sinister Six characters

August 24th, 2014 by Dave Bowling Comments

With the upcoming Sinister Six movie now confirmed, speculation has been rife on the villains that will feature.

Based in a large part on the mid-credits sequence in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, most speculation was centring on Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Rhino, Vulture, Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio. However, there has been much debate over the Kraven the Hunter and the Mysterio.

In the Amazing Spider-Man 2 DVD bonus disc “Something Sinister This Way Comes” that is apparently exclusive to US retailer Target, director Marc Webb puts an end to the debate and reveals which characters he was teasing us with: “So we’ve got this company called Blur, Tim Miller to start designing the elements of the Sinister Six, the hardware of the Sinister Six, which is something that’s hinted at in the movie,” said Webb in the video below.

“It’s tricky, because we’re not exactly sure if all those people are going to be in the Sinister Six or even in the next movie. Like the Mysterio mask, I just think looks really cool. And I love Mysterio, but we haven’t all agreed on it, so but I just forced it in because I thought it looked cool,” the director added.

While Webb doesn’t specifically name Kraven, he does state that the cat-like symbol in the credits was a spear, which is a clear nod towards the hunter rather than Black Cat. In an interview with earlier this year, Webb also revealed that Kraven was the villain he was most interested in that hasn’t already appeared in a Spider-Man movie.

It should be noted though, that while Webb is confirming Mysterio and Kraven as being teased in the mid-credits sequence, he makes a point that this is no guarantee they will actually be in future films.

Sinister Six is scheduled to be released on November 11, 2016.
