Does The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer Hint at the Sinister Six?

In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker will definitely have his hands full, fighting the Rhino, Electro, and the Green Goblin. But can he handle the Sinister Six? There have been rumors that there will one day be a movie with the Sinister Six, and there’s apparently a hint of this in the trailer.

Starting with Iron Man, fans know to wait until the end credits to see what the next movie in the Marvel line-up will be, and as Collider tells us, the post-credits segment of Amazing Spider-Man 2 could point towards a Sinister Six movie. As we’ve reported on TGD, this has been rumored for quite some time now, and the Six villains may get their own movie, or may be fighting Spider-Man in one of the upcoming sequels.(A screen grab has gotten out on of a laboratory where we see the Vulture’s mechanical wings, and Doc Oc’s arms in glass cases.)

We’re big believers in the less villains the better. Yes, a ton of superheroes worked great for the Avengers, but too many villains can absolutely ruin the stew, as we saw this in one of the most notorious examples in movie history, Batman and Robin. In Spider-Man 3, too many villains yanked Peter in too many directions, and it was a big reason the movie ultimately went nowhere. 

Still, a movie that could have only villains could be an interesting concept, and if Spider-Man is going to fight what’s essentially the Avengers of bad guys, it could make a great movie if it’s done right. At the same time, the villain movie fans have been clamoring for is of course, Venom, and it would be great to see him done right one day as well.
