‘The Sinister Six’ Pushes ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 3’ to 2018

Andrew Garfield’s next superhero outing in The Amazing Spider-Man sequel has been postponed until 2018 to make room for spin-off film The Sinister Six.

The Amazing Spider-Man 3 had been expected to hit theaters in 2016, with the fourth installment following two years later, but studio executives at Sony’s Columbia Pictures have since decided to push back its release to bring the villainous new movie, an ensemble piece featuring a group of Spider-Man’s arch-enemies, to big screens first.

The Sinister Six, directed by Drew Goddard, will now be unveiled in November 2016.

Another planned spin-off film focusing on another of Spider-Man’s villains, Venom, has yet to be given a release date.
