Okay, picture 5 of the six members being Electro, Sandman, Mysterio, Vulture, and Scorpion. Who should lead the Six? Also, what would be a good backstory that brings them together?
 
Hobgoblin leads the Six! Why? Because he's an unrepentant, manipulating ****bag. Also, if we must EVER have Hobgoblin, as a leader and manipulator of other villains would be the way to go, since it would prevent the audience from getting bored with Goblin action.

The backstory would be that a good portion of the villains had already been introduced, and he someone manipulates/threatens/bribes/"does whatever he has to do" to get the other five guys to more or less work for him; playing on their emotional/mental/financial weaknesses.

The word "team" would apply only very loosely, if at all. They're all in it for their own reasons; I don't want any "supervillain team meetings." There is one guy in charge, one guy pulling the strings, and there is no trust or mutual understanding among the group. I mean, they're bad guys. Naturally, to a certain degree, the group would have to cave from within.
 
Doc Ock for sure--
Hers my Sinister-
Doc Ock-(leader)
Hobgoblin-(Mystery man who is revealed to later beNorman Osborn in disguise)
Electro-(Secret weapon/most powerful member/trump card)
Carnage-(Like Venom not much developement is needed on him)
Sandman
Lizard
 
I don't understand how, after Spider-Man 2, Doc Ock could possibly come back as a villain. I mean, I thought it was pretty clear he turned good at the end. And even if you can come up with a suitable explanation for that, and a suitable explanation for him being alive... where would he have been all this time? It's kind of hard to miss a half-naked Alfred Molina with giant metal tentacles wandering around.

With you there on it. Bringing back Doc Ock after his death in the second film is pushing it....a lot considering people have a tendency to stay dead in the movies.

Yeah... a movie death has less in common with a comic book or soap opera death (where anyone can come back, for whatever reason) than it does with a real life death, where people, for the most part, stay dead.

Plus, I think bringing back Ock AND making him evil again would really take away from the dramatic resonance his death at the end of Spider-Man 2 has.
 
Something that Raimi put forth with his ground rules to the series.

With Norman Osborn, we had a brief exception but that was only because of his ghostly presence. Something that was denoted by Harry's own determination to live up to his father's beliefs after his death and make himself stronger. Prove himself to the world and his Norman.

Bringing Ock back is breaking the foundation to the series rules. Even if it is for a special occasion.
 
I think the Hobgoblin works best. He is crafty, so him creating a team to take out a threat all other villains have fallen to would work for him. SM2 Ock just doesn't seem like the Master Planner Ock that would do something like this. Plus, Hobgoblin II was a member of the Sinister Six. I outlined a way I thought the SS could work as a trilogy in another thread, but I am too lazy to repost it right now.
 
Don't even suggest Norman rising from the grave.
 
Green Goblin

Doc Ock could still be in the Six but I selected Gobby because IMO he truly is Spidey's arch-nemesis and deserves to be a leader.
 
If Doctor Octopus isn't leading the Sinister Six, the story isn't worth telling.

BTW, it would be perfect to end the Spider-Man franchise with a Sinister Six film (Spider-Man 6), with a new director at the helm.

6th movie
6 in the title
6 villains

Catholics would have a field day with the mark of the beast bellowing of 666.

The Hobgoblin's not that big of a leader type. He may have lead one group prior, but it just doesn't suit him with the Six.

Let's get 4 first.

No, but he is crafty and outside of Ock the most likely to do this that was part of the Sinister Six in the comics (though it was not Kingsley in the costume, it still counts), and like I said, SM2 Ock doesn't seem like he would (since he has control of the tentacles and isn't a bad guy). Since this is a sequel with the SS we are discussing, this is the Ock they are going by, and I just don't see him doing it.
 
Hobgoblin or Kingpin would be the best choice for the leader.Doc Ock and Sandman shouldn't be on the team no matter how cool they would be in it.Because Doc Ock died,and Sandman was never really a villain.
 
doc ock didnt die

^
He basically did.I know he would be the easiest villain to bring back.But he went out as a god guy,so it would ruin his character to bring him back as a villain.
 
doc ock didnt die

Doc Ock scarificed himself, drowning the device at the end of SPIDER-MAN 2 clear as day and if you watch the scene very intently focusing on the lights, which were attached to the tentacles. Ock was clearly dead since the tentacles operate off his own brain's impulses and actions. Besides, that it made him a hero in his own right.

To bring Ock back would be waste such a heroic scarifice for the character.
 
didnt a light from one of the tenticles turn on under the water?
 
They can easily ressurrect Ock as a villain. Brain damage from exposure to the fusion ball, amnesia etc.

Unless Ock is the leader of the Six, then don't bother doing them. It would be like doing the X-Men without Charles Xavier.

Ock is the founder, leader, and spirit of the Six.
 
The thing is the Spider-man trilogy thus far has stuck with a realistic approach and to have him brought back, would ruin the closure that the second film put forth.

Don't get me wrong I loved the Sinister Six in the comics but the odds of it happening onscreen are honestly about 0 to none unless another director is crazy enough to do something that insane. If they do go that way, I look for the series to go the way of Batman and Robin.
 
The way the movies are killing off the villains so far or by making them become good at the end of the movies,when SM6 comes out and if they want to have the Sinister Six in it,they won't be able to use any of the villains from the previous movies.

That is something they shouldn't of done,because you could of used some of the villains in the previos movies and you wouldn't of had to set up any back stories,because everybody would already know who they were.

And it would be pretty difficult to give six villains we've never seen before back stories in one movie.
