Drew Goddard Rumored To Write And Direct Spider-Man Reboot

Spectacular Spider-Man

In what isn’t a huge surprise, it seems that Drew Goddard may be writing and directing the next Spider-Man. While Goddard’s rep walked back initial reports that it was a sure thing, he apparently has a meeting with Sony to discuss the possibility. Goddard first joined the Spider-Man franchise when he left Marvel’s Daredevil (coming soon to Netflix) in favor of Sony’s Sinister Six spin-off of The Amazing Spider-Man. With that series officially dead and Sinister Six put back into development — which seems like the precursor to a mercy killing. Honestly, this just makes sense, so don’t be surprised when this is announced soon.

In more uncertain rumors, the Latino Review is reporting that the series might be called Spectacular Spider-Man, after the sometimes name of the Spider-Man comic. It also says that Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige’s boss, Ike Perlmutter, insisted that producer Avi Arad was removed from the movie, getting only an executive producer credit. There’s bad blood between Perlmutter and Arad, but I don’t feel that bad about this seeing as Arad is generally held responsible for the failings of Spider-Man 3 and both Amazing Spider-Man films, even if his involvement did really help the first two Spider-Man films and also Iron Man.
