Right now, a number of genre stories are setting up spin-offs that will exist within a story’s universe, so to speak, much like the Iron Man films continued in and out of The Avengers. The latest superhero series to attempt this is Spider-Man, and movies featuring the Sinister Six and Venom are currently in the works.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is coming next May 2, 2014, and there’s rumors going around that the film is setting up a future clash with the Sinister Six. There has also been speculation that Spider-Man will be, as they say in the modern vernacular, expanding his universe, and part of this expansion could also include the long awaited Venom movie.
It may not last forever, but right now superheroes have never been hotter. There are still a number of superhero films in development, and 2015 will be a crucial year with Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Batman Vs Superman, which has a long way to go to prove itself with the fans.
It’s pretty clear that some Spider-Man fans have wanted to see Peter Parker spar with his arch nemesis, Venom, for the longest time. Apparently, Hollywood actually agrees.
