Sony Chief On “Sinister Six” Foreshadowing

Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal has confirmed that the final scenes of the upcoming “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” are a key part of the studio’s plan to move forward with their own mini Marvel Universe.

Pascal tells EW: “At the tail end of this movie we set up some of the other characters that will probably end up being in the Sinister Six. We’re going forward on all fronts.”

Producer Avi Arad adds: “Villains can be very entertaining. It’s not like somebody’s born and they’re a villain. Something happens and it changes their lives. Some people can deal with it – they become the heroes. Some people can’t and hate the world because of what they felt was done to them – they become the villains.”

As previously indicated, villains such as Doctor Octopus and The Vulture are being eyed to join the likes of The Rhino amongst others in the “Sinister Six” film.
