'Sinister Six' and 'Venom' characters to be birthed out of OsCorp, says writer

This summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will just be another chapter in the ever-expanding universe with several new films slated, including Sinister Six and Venom spinoffs.

Roberto Orci has been key to the Spidey franchise and The Global Dispatch Jan. 16 article details the creative teams and how these characters will be developed.

"We’re all working on each other’s stuff. So we want to be true to it, but there are some antiheroes in this day and age. There’s been examples of that even on TV — Vic Mackey on The Shield, one of the great antiheroes of all time. There are ways to milk that story. Audiences have seen everything. They’ve seen all the good guys who never do anything wrong. Is there a story in seeing the other side? That’s the challenge, and that’s the fun. I’m not sure how we’re going to do that yet.”

The trailers set up the importance of OsCorp and the creation of these super-villains and Orci confirms that is true.

“Yeah. Oscorp plays an important part in how our villains get created, obviously, in the first one. So because Peter becoming Spider-Man came out of that, rather than saying, “And then this alien came from space,” or whatever, they’re doing human-hybrid, weird stuff at Oscorp. That’s where Gwen Stacy works anyway as well. So the idea of it representing the good and the bad of science, that it can do great things, but it can also mess you up and do weird things and transform people — as all science can be used for good or bad. So it’s nice to have that organizing principal, but it wasn’t like, “We must keep it at Oscorp.” It flowed naturally from the story development.”

Orci adds more details about the character development, the fallout form The Amazing Spider-Man 2, so check out the full details here.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014.

Sony recently set release dates for both Spidey 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 for June 2016 and May 2018
