The fact that Sony is planning a Spider-Man spin-off in the form of a Sinister Six film isn’t anything new; what is new is the possible reveal of just which villains it will feature. As you can see from the above image, there are plenty to choose from. Sony and Shazam have teamed up to tantalize fans via the following instructions:
After seeing THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 – opening on May 2nd - be sure to Shazam the end credit sequence to unlock a look into the sinister future. Download @Shazam on iTunes or GooglePlay. #SpiderMan
Feel free to do that on your own when you check out The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in theaters. It will send a copy of the film’s credits to your mobile device which contains teasers for the Sinister Six movie. We’ve included image grabs from those credits after the jump, but if you want to stay spoiler-free, now’s your chance to look away.
The folks over at CS Shazam’d the end credits song, “It’s On Again,” by Alicia Keys (featuring Kendrick Lamar) and pulled the following images from the credits:
As you can tell from the first four images, the Sinister Six film will likely feature (Green/Hob) Goblin, Vulture, Rhino, and Doctor Octopus. Slightly less familiar or obvious are the last two images. The fifth one appears to be the cat-like eyes of Kraven the Hunter’s lion-themed costume. The last one is a bit trickier. CS pegs it as the illusionist Mysterio, with a possibility of it indicating the shape-shifting villain Chameleon. Either of these would make sense in the line-up, so it’s hard to say just who it could be. As a dark horse suggestion, the last image also sort of resemble’s Spidey’s mask, so perhaps we’ll see one of his arachnid brethren. Or maybe it’s supposed to be Shocker’s mask? All heresay for now, but it makes for some fun speculation. Let us know what you think in the comments!
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars Andrew Garfield, Dane DeHaan, Jamie Foxx, Emma Stone, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, Chris Cooper, B.J. Novak, and Felicity Jones and opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 2nd.
