For the first time for Sony, Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be the beginning of a new movie universe as a Sony exec lets it be known the end of the movie will set up the Sinister Six film.

"At the tail end of this movie we set up some of the other characters that will probably end up being in the Sinister Six,” Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal told EW, which also debuted the following new magazine cover. “We’re going forward on all fronts.”

While the characters that will making up the Sinister Six have yet to be made known, it seems all but guaranteed that the Rhino will be one, and Amazing Spider-Man 2 even has Easter Eggs featuring Vulture, Venom, Doc Ock and more.

Producer Avi Arad also mentions that there is a fine line separating hero and villain, and that it's not always black and white.

"It’s not like somebody’s born and they’re a villain. Something happens and it changes their lives," he said. "Some people can deal with it — they become the heroes. Some people can’t and hate the world because of what they felt was done to them — they become the villains."

Drew Goddard is writing the Sinister Six movie with an eye to direct, with no release date as-of-yet announced.

A Venom movie is also in development.

Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits May 2nd.
