Venom and Sinister Six Spinoff Movies Confirmed

Three days ago I posted 9 thoughts on a superhero movies in a post-Avengers film industry. I touched on how everything needs to be hype now if any other studio wants to compete with Marvel. Funny that three days later, Sony announces Venom and Sinister Six are getting their own spinoff movies.

Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner, Ed Solomon, and Drew Goddardwill work together on overseeing the “developing story over several films” according to Sony. They “have formed a franchise brain trust to expand the universe for the brand and to develop a continuous tone and thread throughout the films,” and the team will be working alongside Marc Webb, and producersAvi Arad and Matt Tolmach.

Kurtzman, Orci, and Solomon will write Venom, with Kurtzman directing. Goddard will write and maybe direct Sinister Six,though I would much rather see him take on Venom since he also did Cabin in the Woods,and that monster would be great to see from Goddard.
