New photos ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ pics, ‘Sinister Six’ and Venom characters confirmed to be birthed from OsCorp

This summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will just be another chapter in the ever-expanding universe with several new films slated, including  Sinister Six and Venom spinoffs. Roberto Orci has been key to this point in the franchise and spoke about the nature of the new films and the creative teams.

“That’s the discussion we’re having right now; how exactly do you do that, and how do you do it without betraying the audience and making them all mean? Drew Goddard [Cabin in the Woods] is going to be writing that one, so it’s kind of his problem. [Laughs] I’m kidding. We’re all working on each other’s stuff. So we want to be true to it, but there are some antiheroes in this day and age. There’s been examples of that even on TV — Vic Mackey on The Shield, one of the great antiheroes of all time. There are ways to milk that story. Audiences have seen everything. They’ve seen all the good guys who never do anything wrong. Is there a story in seeing the other side? That’s the challenge, and that’s the fun. I’m not sure how we’re going to do that yet.”

The trailers set up the importance of OsCorp and the creation of these super-villains and Orci confirms that is true.

“Yeah. Oscorp plays an important part in how our villains get created, obviously, in the first one. So because Peter becoming Spider-Man came out of that, rather than saying, “And then this alien came from space,” or whatever, they’re doing human-hybrid, weird stuff at Oscorp. That’s where Gwen Stacy works anyway as well. So the idea of it representing the good and the bad of science, that it can do great things, but it can also mess you up and do weird things and transform people — as all science can be used for good or bad. So it’s nice to have that organizing principal, but it wasn’t like, “We must keep it at Oscorp.” It flowed naturally from the story development.”

“The way we do it is to make sure that their presence is based on a character thing that necessary for the theme of the movie. You can’t just throw somebody in there to show up and make it harder on Spider-Man. The stories that we have for these guys, they’re tragic villains, you’re going to find out, a little bit. It’s not as simple as “Evil dude shows up.” Jamie Foxx has some very touching scenes. As long as I can describe their stories and character terms, then I feel like it’s okay. If you can’t, then you know you’re having them crash-land out of nowhere, and what’s that about?”

Lastly, Orci details how the team will function and work together.

“So the idea of, let’s get a core group of writers and producers and directors — and even though I might not be the one writing Venom, I’ll be in the meetings talking about how to make it interesting. We could be putting in easter eggs and planning ahead in the previous movies, and then that guy over there is going to write that movie, and Ed Solomon’s gonna write another one with us. So having a committee, a board, of people who are creative, who are filmmaker, who just keep it all together, that’s kind of going back to the way we started [in television].”

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014.

Sony recently set release dates for both Spidey 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 for June 2016 and May 2018
