Marvel and Sony Have Reportedly Found Their New ‘Spider-Man’ Director

Last year, back when it still seemed possible that Sony may try to continue their Amazing Spider-Man reboot and before they teamed with Marvel to relaunch Spidey in a new film series that will connect with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ScreenCrush Editor-in-Chief Mike Sampson and I put together a list of ten directors we thought could save the Spider-Man franchise. One name we both immediately thought belonged on the list was Drew Goddard, the man who directed The Cabin in the Woods and was then slated to direct the Amazing 2 spinoff The Sinister Six.

We always suspected this day would come; our Supermovies Infographic is actually shrinking. The announcement of a new deal between Sony and Marvel over the Spider-Man movies, which sees Spider-Man integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe but still under Sony's control, has not only bumped a lot of release dates back to avoid a Marvel/Sony showdown, but has also pushed at least a couple of films off the chart completely.

After the news that Marvel and Sony had come to an agreement to co-produce a new series of Spider-Man movies, while also introducing the character into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one of the items we immediately turned our attention to was Sony's planned Sinister Six spinoff, which was deep into development and was teased all through last summer’s Amazing Spider-Man 2. Director Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) had been working on the film since last year (he even left Netflix’s Daredevil series to focus on it) with a November 2016 release date planned. The future of that film seemed very tenuous this morning following the big announcement, but now comes news that the film is still in development at Sony.

It’s been a really rough time for Sony as the studio’s e-mails and sensitive materials have been hacked by a mysterious group, and confidential details have been leaking left and right. The latest pieces of information picked up from Sony’s hacked internal e-mails have to do with Spider-Man—a character that’s in a bit of flux right now as Sony has been trying to sort out what to do next following the critical and commercial disappointment of ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2.’ As it turns out, Sony has indeed spoken with Marvel about a potential crossover, and that’s not all they’ve been planning to salvage the character.

Drew Goddard Named As Director Of ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ Spinoff Movie ‘Sinister Six’

Back in December, Sony Pictures announced that it was going full-force with its Spider-Man franchise, not just with a followup to the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie, but with Venom and Sinister Six movies to boot.

The directors for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and Venom were already in place at the time of that announcement (Marc Webb is sticking with the main series and Alex Kurtzman will handle Venom), but Sinister Six's director wasn't yet confirmed. Now, it seems like an almost-done deal that screenwriter Drew Goddard, who directed The Cabin in the Woods and is also writing the new Netflix Daredevil series, will have the job.
