Spider-Man villain spin-off Rhino Project reportedly in development at Sony & more

It looks like Venom won’t be the only Spider-Man villain to get his own standalone franchise as a new report suggests Rhino and Sandman are also on road to appear in their own projects. Furthermore, it will be a new shared universe from Sony Pictures unrelated to the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet sharing links with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man.

It seems Sony Pictures is finally taking steps to develop its new shared universe based on Marvel characters from the Spider-Man universe. Earlier this week, rumor sprung up after Insider Daniel Richtman revealed in a tweet that a Rhino and Sandman project was in active development at Sony.

Rhino project and Sony possibly also has eyes on Sinister Six film, claims report

A new report coming from the same individual offers some more tidbits regarding the Rhino project. It’s currently uncertain if the project would be a standalone film or a TV series but Sony is inclined to develop a film for the big screen, similar to the recent Venom: Let there be Carnage and the upcoming Morbius starring Jared Leto.

Daniel also claims that a Sinister Six project is also in the works but it’s too early to know if Sony is actively developing it. Added, readers are urged to take this news with a grain of salt since there’s no official word yet from the studio.

So far, it looks like the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home will be the starting point to exploring these new characters in a world post the multiverse events. Although it’s unclear if Sony’s Marvel films will continue to explore events similar to MCU Phase 4, especially since the rumor suggests it’s a new shared universe far from Marvel Studios-based films.

No details yet on if the Sandman project would feature Thomas Haden Church. Nonetheless, Marvel fans can remain hopeful as Sandman’s appearance is confirmed among other villains in Spider-Man: No Way Home set to arrive in theatres on December 17.
