Spider-Man saving the disastrous Sinister Six movie is already impossible
Sony’s Spider-Man universe is becoming a Sinister Six movie, but the reason for the villains’ motivation is not to include Spider-Man.
The foundations Sony is laying for The Sinister Six the movie makes no sense for the team to fight in the end Spider Man. Sony’s Spider-Man universe has had an inconsistent run so far, with the success of Venom and Venom: let there be carnage offset by the relative disaster (critical and commercial) of Morbius. Still, with audiences patiently waiting for Spider-Man to properly show up in either Venom 3 and or The Sinister Six movie, including the web-slinger as a hero is actually impossible given how Sony’s Spider-Man universe is built.
The Sinister Six has already been teased in The Amazing Spider-Man 2and although this Drew Goddard spin-off movie was canceled, the concept of a villainous team was put to good use in Spider-Man: No Coming Home. The Sinister Six the film is now back on the agenda for Sony, with Morbius‘ end credits sequence hinting at what’s to come. Michael Keaton’s Vulture arrives from a parallel universe (with his Vulture flight suit), suggesting a team with Morbius in order to “do good.“While it’s unclear which Spider-Man (Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield, or even Tony Maguire) would be in The Sinister Six movie, it seems inevitable that Spider-Man will show up for the bad guys to fight.
The problem that the Six Claims film has, however, is that the reason the members team up (for “do good“) is completely at odds with their comic book heritage, where villains joined forces to kill Spider-Man. With Sony lining up Spider-Man’s villains to be all anti-heroes, the studio is giving itself an impossible task and heads for disaster by making a rod for his own back.Though in the comics, The Sinister Six team up for their own selfish and personal reasons, they are under no illusions that they are the villains and revel in their villainy.Insertion of Spider-Man into The Sinister Six movie where the bad guys try to do good is the opposite of their usual reason for existing and isn’t as interesting on paper. Inevitably, a conflict with Spider-Man would have to be ignited, and it would be much better if the villains embraced their true selves in the first place.
Audiences have responded well to Venom being a deadly protector and a force for good. However, that will have to change if he is to fight Spider-Man in a satisfying way without it looking disappointing or audiences rooting for Spider-Man to lose in order for Venom (or any other member of The Sinister Six) to win. Captain America: Civil War showed that it’s possible for two sides to believe they’re right, but in this case, they were all heroes in the first place. To create a great Six Claims film that honors its roots, the villains have to be bad from the get-go to present a Spider-Man-worthy threat and give Peter Parker the task of defeating them. Change motivations mid-course or alter established character traits The Sinister Six for disaster.
Conversely, Vulture’s notion of doing good could potentially be interpreted as killing Spider-Man. However, Morbius’ response to the idea as intriguing doesn’t quite add up, as there’s no indication that Morbius views his universe’s version of Spider-Man as a threat. Whether Kraven the hunter can keep the bad guys away from disaster remains to be seen, but having The Sinister Six being the heroes of their own movie makes it impossible for Spider Man be part of it.
