It’s been a really rough time for Sony as the studio’s e-mails and sensitive materials have been hacked by a mysterious group, and confidential details have been leaking left and right. The latest pieces of information picked up from Sony’s hacked internal e-mails have to do with Spider-Man—a character that’s in a bit of flux right now as Sony has been trying to sort out what to do next following the critical and commercial disappointment of ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2.’ As it turns out, Sony has indeed spoken with Marvel about a potential crossover, and that’s not all they’ve been planning to salvage the character.

The 'Sinister Six' movie was recently bumped up in the timeline so that it will be the next 'Spider-Man' universe movie, coming before 'Amazing Spider-Man 3' and not after, as was originally planned. Director Marc Webb thought while he was making 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' that he'd have another film to build the Sinister Six, but he won't have that luxury. That said, he did talk quite a bit on the 'ASM2' audio commentary about the future of the franchise, including some words about which Spider-Man villains would be appearing as the Sinister Six.

Spider-Man is about to face his most "sinister" challenge yet! No, we're not talking about the logline for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2.' We're referring to the fact that the movie universe is about to branch out into a slew of spinoffs, including ones for 'Venom,' a female-led film, and, of course, the 'Sinister Six.' A recent teaser for the upcoming Blu-ray release of 'Spider-Man 2' hit the web, hinting at what we can expect from the ultimate villain team-up through new concept art.

While a Shazam-powered 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' post-credits scene seems to hint at a Sinister Six lineup, reports thereafter confirmed that the official movie lineup has actually yet to be decided upon by 'Amazing Spider-Man 3' director Marc Webb and 'Sinister Six' director Drew Goddard. As they work out their scripts for the upcoming Spidey films, it couldn't hurt to speculate, and who better to speculate than Marc Webb himself.

Sony hasn't been shy about their plans for Spider-Man. Before 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' hit theaters, they had release dates for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 3' and 'The Amazing Spider-Man 4.' They've announced spin-off films for Venom and the villainous supergroup known as the Sinister Six. The franchise's producers have openly mocked the idea of ever teaming up with Marvel Studios or 20th Century Fox for the kind of crossover comic fans all over the world so desperately crave.
In short, Sony wants to transform the Spider-Man movie franchise into a Spider-Man movie universe ... and as of right now, it's not working.
