Has Sony Revealed the Villainous Lineup of ‘The Sinister Six’?

By April 30, 2014

One of the biggest questions of Sony’s planned Sinister Six film – a film that, it must be noted, won’t be hitting screens for at least another two years, if that soon – is who will actually be in said Sinister Six. The baddie-filled super-villain troop has gone through a few comic book incarnations over the years, so while there are plenty of options for stars, that also means there is plenty of wiggle room for who could actually wreak havoc in the feature outing.

But has the team at Sony just gone ahead and teased the lineup already? Maybe.

Over at ComingSoon, a bit of sleuthing has potentially unveiled the six of Drew Goddard’s Sinister Six. If you’ve read this far, we’re willing to bet that you’re not opposed to knowing who those six may be, but be wary – there’s some stuff here that could be considered spoilers for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which opens this week.

Yesterday, Sony sent around a press release asking journalists to spread the word about a special promotion tied into the credits of the new Spidey film, one that involves Shazam-ing the end credits song (yes, “Shazam-ing” is totally a verb now) in order to receive a version of the credits – without actual titles – delivered to their phone. But why, you may ask, would anyone want to do that?

Because it sure looks like those end credits provide a big tease as to who will be leading the evil doings of the Sinister Six film. As it stands now, it appears that the lineup will include Green Goblin and Rhino (both of whom appear in the latest Spidey film), along with Doctor Octopus, Vulture, Kraven the Hunter, and either Mysterio or the Chameleon. Take a look below at the “Green Goblin” screen grab (the glider!) to get a sense of how these credits look:


Head on over to ComingSoon to see the rest of their handy work, and perhaps go ahead and Shazam the song “It’s On Again” by Alicia Keys to get your own look at the credits.

Who do you think is going to be in Sinister Six? Who would you like to see in the film?
