There’s a lot of discussion around Spider-Man: No Way Home, leading to some confusion about what’s actually 100% true and what isn’t. Right now, it’s a fact that both Jamie Foxx and Alfred Molina are back as Electro and Doctor Octopus, reprising their roles from previous versions of the franchise. Given that these two are involved, it seems logical to assume that more villains will reappear in the threequel alongside them as well. Another four more, maybe, to form a certain Sinister Six.
That’s what this new plot leak is claiming anyways. What’s being pitched as a full breakdown of Spider-Man 3‘s storyline has been shared on 4Chan (via BGR), apparently revealing – among other things, like how Daredevil fits into the picture – that the Sinister Six will indeed come together in the film. Given its source, this might just be fan fiction, but it does add up with what we’ve already heard, so there is the chance that it’s onto something.
The leak claims that Peter Parker will lay low at Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum now that he’s a wanted fugitive. While there, he discovers a kind of multiversal prison housing villains from the Raimiverse and the Webbverse, and Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin manipulates him into releasing the foes, who then head out into New York. As Strange and Spidey chase after them, the group – led by Osborn – visit the MCU’s Oscorp to get the necessary tech to build an interdimensional portal. Osborn’s team, meanwhile, consists of Doc Ock, Electro, Sandman (Thomas Haden Church), Lizard (Rhys Ifans) and Rhino (Paul Giamatti).
So, there you have it. The Sinister Six team-up we’ve all been waiting is allegedly set to take place in Spider-Man 3 and will be made up of entirely familiar villains from the original trilogy and the Amazing duology. What’s more, this leak says that yes, both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will show up to help Holland defeat the Six. This is definitely the stuff of fans’ dreams, but is it true? We’ll find out when Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters on December 17th.
