There’s already been a little bit a tease towards the film towards the end of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 earlier in the summer. But as that film heads to DVD and Blu-ray, a trailer for the disc in the US has been dropping more hints. In short, if you buy the film from Target in the States, you’re getting a Sinister Six bonus disc, which we’d imagine will drop even more hints.

#1 ‘Henchmen’ gets a teaser, a new animated film from Will Ferrell and Adam McKay
Adam McKay, Will Ferrell and Chris Henchy are attached as creative collaborators and executive producers for a new feature-length animated film based on the Adam Wood short “Henchmen: Ill Suited.”
The feature centres on Hank, “a lowly class three henchmen in the Union of Evil. It’s not how he pictured his career, but as he says, “you just play the cards you’re dealt”. When Hank is forced to train an excitable young dreamer, he offers the same trite poker metaphor. Instead, the boy steals an amazing super suit, changing everything.
Adam Wood is set to return to direct the movie from a script by SNL’s own Dennis McNicholas and is scheduled for a 2016 release.
