In an interview with io9 Drew Goddard, writer of The Sinister Six, confirmed that it would have been a stand alone movie set in The Amazing Spider-Man Universe which would have very much featured Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker in a leading role.
Goddard explained his vision, “That movie was a summer annual, so you didn’t have to worry about continuity. It was just, ‘We take Peter, put him on an adventure, we put him back in his life.’ I intentionally wanted a movie that didn’t have to worry about mythology and continuity. It was important to me to make a movie that could stand on its own.”

Goddard then drop a hint at the opportunity of the film fitting into the Marvel Cinematic Universe of which Spider-Man is now a part of. Then he added “…So the good news is, you know, it slots in very well to any plan anybody ever wants. We just need to let a couple years go by, I think.”
“…I love this plan”, the writer continued, “I love that you get to see Spider-Man in Marvel movies. I think that’s a great thing. I’m on board with that decision because as a fan that’s what I want.” he stated, “So who knows what the future holds? This is Hollywood, man, you’ve gotta play the long game”.
