Drew Goddard to write and direct new 'Spider-Man' movie, reports Latino Review (update)

Update: TheWrap (and several other reliable sources) say that Drew Goddard will meet with Sony/Marvel soon and that this is not a done deal…yet.

Insiders caution that Drew Goddard doesn’t quite have the job yet, telling TheWrap, “Drew has not yet met with Marvel but will soon; along with several others.” Other sources describe Goddard as the heavy favorite and say it’s unlikely he would pass on the project if it was officially offered to him.

The original story follows…

Marvel and Sony are still searching for their Spider-Man, but according to Latino Review, they’ve found a writer and director for 2017 Spider-Man reboot.

The site reports that Drew Goddard has been hired for that job. Goddard was previously attached to the Sinister Six movie, but it looks like that’s being pushed back.

Latino Review also claims to know some details about the new Spider-Man series:

  • No new origin story, Spidey exists from the beginning, taken as a given
  • New actor, probably an unknown, he will be specifically based in High School and they want him to be able to grow up into the role.  The thought being if this works, Spidey can do multiple trilogies for years ala Harry Potter.
  • A major part of the first film will involve Spider- Man fighting Iron Man and then trying to pass the “audition” to join the Avengers
  • The first film will involve the Sinister Six coming together with the thought to later maybe spin them off.
