The Download: Spidey Sense Is Tingling at Sony, 'Ghostbusters' Reboot, and 'Terminator' Has a New Title
What's Popping: 'Ghostbusters' Reboot, 'Batman v Superman,' 'Legend of Conan,' 'Venom,' and 'The ExpendaBelles'
It's all about the Spider-Man spin-offs as new details emerge about The Sinister Six, as well as news that Sony’s Venom movie is to be entitled Venom Carnage. That supposed title would suggest the involvement of Cletus Kasady (AKA the psychopathic Carnage) in Alex Kurtzman’s new film, although no plot details have been officially confirmed as yet. Meanwhile, new information has also emerged regarding Drew Goddard’s The Sinister Six, which is said to position Doctor Octopus as the leader of the newly-assembled team of super-villains.
Alex Kurtzman has been discussing Universal’s newly announced plans for a shared universe of classic movie monsters, and has outlined how he and co-writer Chris Morgan intend to go about bringing it to life. “Front and centre right now is Chris Morgan and I working on getting The Mummy off the ground and building up our Monster Universe,” says Kurtzman.
