Sony’s Sinister Six Movie Cast (As We Know It)
Sony is developing a Six Claims team-up film, likely to include a wide variety of recognizable actors playing the titular villains. When the movie will finally arrive is anyone’s guess right now, as Sony wanted to embark on a Six Claims movie for about a decade at this point, from the days of The Amazing Spider-Man franchise. Back then, future daredevil Showrunner Drew Goddard was set to write the script, and possibly direct it as well.
Those plans were put on the back burner in 2015, when Sony brokered a now-famous deal with Marvel Studios that allowed Tom Holland’s Spider-Man into the MCU. This deal of course continues to this day, with no indication that Peter Parker will be leaving the MCU anytime soon. Despite this, Sony has continued its growing universe of Marvel movies adjacent to Spider-Man, which has so far counted Venom, Venom: let there be carnage and Morbius in its ranks, with Kraven the hunter move in early 2023.
For the moment, no director is attached to Sony Six Claims film, although Goddard and Morbius helmsman Daniel Espinosa at one point seemed to both be in the running. A cast has yet to be confirmed either, but based on Sony’s existing Spider-Man and Spider-Man Expanded Universe movies, as well as casting reports and theories, educated guesses can be made. as to what to expect. Considering Morbius‘ underperforming at the box office however, there is a chance Six Claims could be in for another shakeup before it arrives.
Spider-Man – Andrew Garfield
While there’s always a chance that any Marvel movie in the future could incorporate the multiverse in some way, it’s also unlikely to be a creative well that we dive into too often, from fear that it is exaggerated. With that in mind, it’s been made clear that the MCU is a different universe than where Venom resides, which likely rules out Tom Holland. Tobey Maguire also has a history with his own version of Venom, which probably prevents him from running as well. A logical move would be to enroll Andrew Garfield, who isn’t impossible to track down in the Venom-verse due to his past films not involving the character, and was widely seen as stealing every scene he was in during Spider-Man: No Coming Home. Plus it was in Sony’s original Six Claims plans in the mid-2010s, making him the most natural fit.
Vulture – Michael Keaton
MorbiusThe credits scenes saw a famous appearance by Michael Keaton’s Adrian Toomes, aka Vulture, who was sent from the MCU thanks to the multiversal havoc in Spider-Man: No Coming Home. Although the explanation is quite thin, Toomes invites Morbius to form an alliance. The resulting team, should that happen, would undoubtedly be the Sinister Six.
Morbius – Jared Leto
As mentioned, the credits scenes of Morbius clearly seem designed to set up a Sinister Six film crew. Despite MorbiusCritically and commercially unsuccessful, there have been no indications so far that Sony is considering releasing Jared Leto from his multi-film deal, or recasting the Michael Morbius character. Therefore, it seems safe to say a Six Claims movie made soon will include Leto.
Venom – Tom Hardy
It’s another cast that’s almost impossible to imagine changing, as the two Venom movies starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock were big hits for Sony. The real question isn’t whether Hardy will play Venom, it’s whether or not Venom will join or oppose the Sinister Six. Despite being part of the group in previous Marvel media, Hardy’s Brock is definitely positioning himself as a good guy at the moment. Therefore, he seems more likely to team up with Spider-Man and fight the team of villains than be part of it.
Mary Jane – Shailene Woodley
Who could play Mary Jane Watson in a Six Claims the movie is really up in the air, as it’s unlikely to be either Zendaya or Kirsten Dunst thanks to their respective implications in the other established Spider Man franchisees. However, Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actress Shailene Woodley was cast as MJ for Andrew Garfield. amazing spider man 2, only to see its cut scenes. If he ends up playing Spider-Man opposite the Sinister Six, this would be a perfect opportunity to bring her back into the fold.
Green Goblin – Dane DeHaan
Along the same lines, if the Green Goblin is part of Sony Six Claimsa good fit for the job would be Dane DeHaan, who starred in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Notably though, his Goblin is the Harry Osborn version, not Norman like in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies. DeHaan was also in Sony’s original plans to Six Claimsmaking him another natural inclusion at this stage of production.
Rhino – Paul Giamatti
Paul Giamatti’s Rhino may be a little hard to take seriously after Garfield’s Spider-Man shamefully called him “Russian guy in a rhino machine“, but he would still be a good candidate for Sony Six Claims film. He was again in the studio’s original plans for the team again as well, and Giamatti is a generally great actor. If they reinvented their controversial Rhino, Giamatti could probably make it work.
Black Cat – Sydney Sweeney
While Black Cat’s alter ego, Felicia Hardy, made a very brief appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (played by Felicity Jones), there is unlikely to be a sequel. With current Hollywood it-girl, Sydney Sweeney, in the next Sony film Madame Web movie project, and rumors strongly suggesting she’s playing Black Cat, it would make perfect sense for Sweeney to appear in Six Claims. However, she would make much more sense as an ally of Spider-Man than an enemy, which would make her direct involvement with the team more unlikely.
Kraven the Hunter – Aaron Taylor-Johnson
This casting for a Six Claims the film looks like a lock, because the Kraven the hunter The first solo movie is already in production, with MCU Quicksilver actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson set to play Kraven. Kraven is a frequent member of the Sinister Six media in Marvel, so it wouldn’t make sense to make a Sinister Six movie without him. However, it’s worth considering the idea that if the Kraven movie fails as badly as Morbius has done so, Sony may decide to put the brakes on manufacturing once again Six Claims. It makes no sense to build on a foundation whose stability has not been proven.
