The full slate of comic book movies just got a little more crowded. On the heels of Marvel Studios staking their territory on five dates through 2019 with untitled movie projects, Columbia Pictures has announced dates for their Spider-Man franchise. The next installment, hinted at in the mid-credits scene of this summer’s The Amazing Spiderman 2 will be titled The Sinister Six. The Sinister Six will be released November 11, 2016, with a focus on a group of Spider-Man super villains. The Amazing Spiderman 3, staring Andrew Garfield, has now been pushed back to 2018.
With these additional films dated through 2019, that’s now 15 announced Marvel Comic movie properties over the next five years, including Guardians of the Galaxy, opening August 1. Ten of these films will share the same Marvel Cinematic Universe. Warner Brothers’ on the other hand is rumored to have 11 DC Comic films in the works including Justice League—but only one, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, has a release date. With an incredible 26 films either announced or rumored, expect this weekend’s Comic Con to give some answers. Hopefully Marvel will title those untitled films and maybe DC will surprise us with their full slate of planned movies which could include standalone films like Wonder Woman and Shazam or other team-ups films like the Suicide Squad and Justice League Dark.
