Matt Tolmach, Avi Arad say 'Sinister Six' not likely to feature 'classic' line-up

By Kyle Johnson,

Sinister Six producers Matt Tolmach and Avri Arad opened up a little bit on what fans could possibly see out of the villain-centric film.

The two spoke with IGN and explained a little of their thoughts on the film and its lineup, which will draw from the stable of bad guys the Spider-Man universe offers. Arad noted that the "classic" line-up might not be the one that hits the big screen.

"When you translate a comic to film the word 'classic' means the first fifty issues," Arad explained. "Because after that we all made changes; changes that had to do with science-fiction turning into science. I think just the need to move this world forward."

They both believe "adaptations" of the characters will be required as they have a "bigger responsibility to represent the character of the villain as it was conceived." But Tolmach did note that "Nothing is sacred," though whatever their choices may be, they would "make sense in the world that we're building."

The film is obviously still in early days as it only just landed a director, Drew Goddard, last week. He will helm the film based off the screenplay he wrote.

Sinister Six doesn't have an official release date yet, but by all indications it would come out after The Amazing Spider-Man 3, which is slated for a June 10, 2016 release date.
