Goddard To Write & Direct New Spider-Man Movie

By Drax Largo on March 2nd, 2015

If Latino Review is to be believed (and they usually are) Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) has signed on to write and direct the new Marvel/Sony Spider-Man movie!

As for Spidey’s new direction under Goddard, the details, according to LR, go a little like this:

-No new origin story (thank Christ!), Spidey exists from the beginning, taken as a given.

-A new actor (sorry, Andrew Garfield fans), 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 plan is to have Spidey  doing multiple trilogies for years ala Harry Potter.

-A major part of the first film will involve Spider- Man battling Iron Man, then trying to pass the “audition” to join The Avengers.

-The first film will involve the Sinister Six coming together with plans to spin them off.

So there you have it! If this report is correct, our friendly neighborhood wall crawler has more than a few busy years in front of him.
