With The Amazing Spider-Man 3 pushed back to an undecided date in 2018, Sony Pictures are now focusing their efforts on Drew Goddard’s the Sinister Six and a spin-off which will put the spotlight on a female character from Spidey’s world.
Here, we take a look at just 10 of our favourite Spider-Man villains who we would like to see as part of the six member group in the 2016 release. Not all of them have actually been part of the Sinister Six over the years, but we’ll hopefully convince you as to why they would make a worthy addition to the villainous group which will likely be led by Dane DeHaan’s Harry Osborn, a.k.a. the Green Goblin.

Whether it’s genetically or through technology, the Scorpion seems like he could fit right in if his origin was tied into Oscorp somehow. His inclusion would also provide the villainous group with some serious muscle…
