Going into the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Sony seemed to be extremely confident about their Marvel Comics future. In fact, they were so confident that they bared their ambitions possibly a little too much by announcing two more Amazing Spider Man sequels, as well as Venom and Sinister Six spin-off films in the near future. However, once The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released to a less than amazing film market, Sony's plans started to change rather quickly. First, there was word that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was being moved back in favor of Sinister Six. Now, someone out there thinks that the future of the Sinister Six is finished before it even started.
