We've known for a few months that Sony wanted to make a 'Sinister Six' movie featuring Spider-Man's greatest foes, but until today there wasn't an official opening date.

Get ready for the first ever super VILLAIN team-up movie  - 'The Sinister Six' is targeted for a November 11, 2016 opening. Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods) will write and direct.

Also announced - 'The Amazing Spider-Man 3' is pushed back to  a 2018 opening date (from 2016).

There's no word on which Spidey villains will make up the team - the original comic book version included Electro, Doctor Octopus, Sandman, Kraven the Hunter, Vulture, and Mysterio.

Character Descriptions For Marvel's 'Agent Carter'

Thanks to spoilertv.com (via filmdivider.com) for this 'Agent Carter' info - brief bios of some of the supporting characters have surfaced.

We don't have a premiere date for the Hayley Atwell-starring 'Agent Carter', but winter or spring of 2015 is a good bet.

Agent Carter - Character Bios | Spoilers

Deputy Director Roger Hooley is a hardworking, principled older man and Peggy’s boss. As you might expect, he’s bothered by ongoing problems in his personal life as well as the challenges of his day job.

Agent Jack Thompson is in his 30s, handsome and damn well knows it. The polar opposite of Dooley, he doesn’t take kindly to women in the workplace, nor how little recognition he gets. Worse, he wants Dooley’s job and is desperate to prove himself.

Edward Hutchins is a highly professional agent with an unusual problem; duplicity. He’s lying to his wife about what he does to stop her worrying. True Lies, SHIELD style.

Daniel Sousa is everything Jack Thompson wants to be. He’s a war hero who walks using a leg brace, but finds dealing with office politics to be harder than working around his injury. Sousa is also a fiercely honourable, gentle man and we’re betting he becomes one of Peggy’s major allies.

And outside of the agency, there’s Angie Martinelli. Working as an automat waitress, Angie dreams of being a singer. She’s a tough, compassionate young woman who is smart and loyal and seems set to be Peggy’s anchor to the world away from SHIELD.

Mark Ruffalo On Hulk's Greatest Foe

In a new interview, Mark Ruffalo talks about the difficulty of making a solo Hulk movie and who exactly is the Jade Giant's greatest adversary. Marvel has 7 opening dates for movies scheduled through 2019, but so far a Hulk flick isn't on the horizon. If Marvel doesn't move fast, Ruffalo (at 46) will age out of the role.

In the interview with Entertainment Weekly, Ruffalo has a lot to say about how Marvel might be able to make a Hulk-centric movie that audiences want.

"I understand the hesitation. It’s a particularly hard character to make a movie about because he doesn’t want to be there, generally. It’s hard to make a movie about a guy who doesn’t want to be there. And he doesn’t want to do the very thing that you want him to do." - Mark Ruffalo

Is Warner Bros. about to announce a major superhero movie starring Dwayne Johnson?

More specifically - Is Dwayne Johnson playing Shazam?

If you check out the interview below with +Total Film then the answer can only be yes. Johnson says that he and WB will announce something involving a DC superhero. From the hints the actor dropped in the interview it's highly likely the character is Shazam. He says the superhero has "the power of Superman" and added "Just say the word."

Hmm, interesting indeed.
