Fans Are Split Over Who Should Lead The Sinister Six Against Tom Holland’s Spider-Man

With a simple Hey everyone at the end of the Captain America Civil War trailer the Marvel Cinematic Universe was changed forever For many fans SpiderMans inclusion in the MCU marked one of the most exciting developments in the history of the franchise From starring in his own standalone adventure in 2017 to saving theaters with one of the most ambitious multiverse crossovers in 2021 Tom Hollands acclaimed turn as the character effectively launched the already iconic web head into a prolific renaissance of SpiderMan related projects seemingly around every corner.

Longtime Spidey fans also have questions about the long promised inclusion of a particularly dastardly hexagon of villains The Sinister Six as the name implies are a team of SpiderMans six most notorious foes In The Amazing SpiderMan comics this team is originally composed of Doctor Octopus Electro the Sandman Mysterio the Vulture and Kraven the Hunter with various other Spidey baddies joining the mix throughout the years via Fandom The closest weve ever got to seeing a cinematic version of this team was a failed attempt during Andrew Garfields 2012to2014 run However with SpiderMan No Way Home bringing together so many beloved SpiderMan foes from previous films fans have been pondering what a Sinister Six team up might look like in the MCU and who might take charge of the team.

When Redditor u/Gillzter10 posed the question of who should lead the Sinister Six in the Marvel Cinematic Universe it got fans talking left and right Classic Spidey fans such as u/GearZX and u/Arnoldbread wanted to respect tradition and go with Doctor Octopus the latter saying Im a traditionalist so gotta go with Doc Ock Ock has always been well done in every SpiderMan media video game cartoon live action and so on They later admitted that Alfred Molina may not want to reprise the role of Doc Ock but noted that Mark Hamill could also be a good fit for the character.

Others such as u/FrontSeaweed4321 and u/GodzillaForever123 went down a similar path arguing that future installments should see more involvement from the Green Goblin Willem Dafoe and introduce Oscorp On the other side of the discussion u/JigsawMarx and u/SpideyMartian103 admitted they want to see the return of Vincent DOnofrios Kingpin following his appearance in the Disney+ series Hawkeye Interestingly the most unique choice from Redditors is not typically even a supervillain Both u/Dwellerin Basements and u/R520JR suggested that Daily Bugle host J Jonah Jameson JK Simmons take charge with the latter writing JJJ should fund the Sinister Six to help take down Spidey not realizing theyre evil With such a large grab bag of baddies one might wonder why the MCU hasnt tried this idea out already Well it turns out they almost did.

In an interview with The Wrap SpiderMan No Way Home screenwriters Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers talked about their development of the film including some original ideas that were essentially left on the cutting room floor According to the duo the Sinister Six were a part of the discussion at one point in time After briefly considering the use of Kraven the Hunter the team began to throw around a plethora of different ideas pulling inspiration from all possible corners of the source material.

McKenna said Kevin Feige goes Remember that idea with all the villains That Sinister Six idea Why dont we just do it in the movie this movie be about that While the official Sinister Six ultimately did not appear in the film the discussion led the group to conceive of the plot that sees five SpiderMan villains from other universes enter the MCU and attack Tom Hollands character Unfortunately outside of some offhand mentions and jokes there hasnt been much more in terms of development on the concept Will we ever see the Sinister Six make their fullon cinematic debut While we dont have any official word on that yet the continued success of Sony and Marvels wall crawling adventures makes it feel like its only a matter of time.
