The news will mean that Spider-Man fans will get to see movies based around the bad guys. No release dates have been announced, and there is no word if Spider-Man will make any sort of appearance in either film. However it can be expect to be released around 2018. The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is set for June 10, 2016, while the fourth installment May 4 2018,  however with  Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield recently stating he was unaware of a fourth film  THIS DATE MAY IN FACT BE THE SINISTER SIX FILM.

The talent attached to the directing and writing sides of both films has been confirmed. Drew Goodard will most likely direct the Sinister Six film, while Alex Kurtzman will direct Venom. Marc Webb, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner, Ed Solomon, and Drew Goddard, will represent the collective “brain trust” for mapping out of the two films and the universe as a whole.

The Sinister Six are long time Spider-Man foes, comprised of 6 of Spidey’s most powerful villains (the team’s have varied through the years and mediums, though Doctor Octopus is the one constant member). Rhino and Electro seem like shoe-ins, as well as Vulture and Doctor Octopus due to teases in the trailers. Lizard and Green Goblin SEEM like the other logical two as they will have been on the screen before, though traditionally they are not part of this group. However we could be surprised.

The Sinister Six. Will all of these members be on the team?

Venom meanwhile is a very popular villain from the late 80’s and early 90’s. He is alien monster with powers similar to Spider-man and is the first of few villains who do not trigger Spidey’s spider-sense. He is a massive fan favorite and has even had multiple solo titles and even become a good guy over the years (as he is now). Several men have been Venom, it is to be assumed the identity will be the original Eddie Brock. Venom appeared in Spider-man 3 of the original trilogy, as portrayed by Topher Grace, however most fans did not really like the adaptation.
