VENOM Movie Reportedly Titled VENOM CARNAGE; Doc Ock Rumored to Lead the SINISTER SIX

     August 4, 2014

In addition to the news about a female Spider-Man spinoff there were also a few nuggets regarding the rest of Sony’s Spider-Man plans.  While we’ve known about Drew Goddard’s Sinister Six for a while (and learned about its November 11, 2016 release date a few weeks ago), we’re still in the dark in regards to exactly which villains will be appearing since its rogues gallery gets regularly rotated in the comics.  Now it appears that Dr. Octopus will be leading the way for the film adaptation.

It also appears as though the Venom movie Alex Kurtzman has been attached to direct for a while now has a new title, Venom Carnage.  Does that mean we’re getting a Cletus Kasady/Eddie Brock team-up (or showdown)?  Hit the jump for more Venom Carnage and Sinister Six news.

sinister-sixDeadline‘s sources describe Sinister Six:

“[The film] revolves around all the villains of Spider-Man converging after the evil Dr. Octopus summons them. There are a lot of different Sinister Six team-ups so it has yet to be revealed which characters might appear, but one possibility is Vulture, Mysterio, Electro, Kraven the Hunter and Sandman.”

Also interesting is the proposed Venom release date, which wouldn’t leave a whole lot of time for Kurtzman to prep after he wraps The Mummy (assuming he stays attached to Venom)

“The Venom movie — which we hear is entitled Venom Carnage — is still said to be in development with old pros Alex Kurtzman and Ed Solomon scripting. The Venom pic, which Kurtzman will direct, may also now come out in 2017.”

It’s interesting to see Sony trying to course-correct in such a major way after their disappointment in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  It’s no secret that most studios would like cinematic universes for their IP, but it’s easier said than done to get them off the ground successfully, especially in light of their huge overhead.
