Spider-Man graces Entertainment Weekly cover, 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' to set up 'The Sinister Six'


The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be the focus of Entertainment Weekly’s cover story this week and there’s some new information about the future of the Spider-Man universe.

“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,” says Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal. “We’re going forward on all fronts.”

“Villains can be very entertaining,” says producer Avi Arad. “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.”

“Great villains are the characters you remember,” says producer Matt Tolmach. “There’s a lot of us in those people. It’s hard to identify with people who are good all the time.”

The Sinister Six and Venom spin-off movies were announced late last year, and it looks like Sony isn’t wasting any time. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be the platform that they use to get the ball rolling!

This issue of Entertainment Weekly goes on sale this Friday on March 28th. I’ll check it out and report back with any new interesting pieces of information or photos.
