After last night's monumental announcement, everyone is going to their Marvel and Sony sources to find out any new tidbits that they can. 

Variety has a new report regarding all of those Spider-Man spin-off projects we had heard were in the works at Sony. Are still a go other than "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" which of course doesn't come as a surprise:

The studio is still moving forward with the Spider-Man villain-centric “Sinister Six,” and “Venom” spin-off, as well as a film that features female characters in the “Spider-Man” universe. “The Amazing Spider-Man 3″ has been cancelled. While Marvel’s Feige is involved with Sony’s new “Spider-Man” films, he currently is not expected to be creatively involved with the spin-offs, sources say. -Variety

Venom is a spin-off Sony announced at the same time Sinister Six was announced. Alex Kurtzman, who is best known for his screenwriting credits, was penciled in as the film's director. We haven't heard anything new on that project since it was announced in December of 2013.

As for the spin-off led by all-female characters from the Spider-Man universe, Sony has never officially announced those plans but we do know Sony has been very interested in pursuing that course. Rumor has it, that it's a team up film.
