‘Sinister Six’ Movie News: Andrew Garfield Hints Spider-Man Is Irrelevant To Film

The latest Sinister Six movie news comes from Spider-Man actor Andrew Garfield. It seems he might not even be in the film, which raises a lot of questions and speculation.

In an interview with a local newspaper, Garfield unleashed what may be the most surprising twist yet about the upcoming villain collaboration film. There might not even be a hero.

The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is also still underway, in spite of its predecessor being the most disappointing for the franchise in box office results. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, there may be a love triangle as a newly introduced Mary Jane Watson and Felicia Jones (Black Cat) fight over Spider-Man’s heart while Eddie Brock becomes Venom in the confusion.

What we know for now is that Andrew Garfield dropped the following bombshell on the Sinister Six movie news.

“I know more than I’m allowed to say right now. I can say I’m really excited about Drew Goddard, who’s going to be writing and directing The Sinister Six movie. And whether I’m involved in that or not is kind of immaterial.”

Garfield plays the web-slinging hero of the series, and he practically told the world that his character isn’t even relevant to the story. Could this mean that The Sinister Six will be little more than a collection of villain origins and Spider-Man may get nothing more than a cameo to unify the group in their goals?

As also revealed by the Inquisitr, Gwen Stacy may be back in the next Amazing Spider-Man, but that is nothing more than rumors and speculation based on the comics. If Emma Stone does return, it will likely be as a ghost that haunts Spider-Man and possibly fuels his anger for the Venom movie.

Drew Goddard has been confirmed to direct the upcoming movie, his first for a film. He was also the man behind Alias, Lost and the new Daredevil.

It sounds like there is a lot being gambled in this latest Sinister Six movie news, with a first-time film director and a possible all-villains cast. Combine this with the increasingly smaller box office from previous films in Andrew Garfield’s take on the web-slinger, and it appears Sony is walking a very fine line planning to continue with the story.

What do you think of Garfield’s statement? Could he be unknowingly indicating that Spider-Man will have nothing more than a possible cameo in the upcoming Sinister Six movie? News like that could be a real game changer.
