Your friendly neighborhood rumor mill, to Latino Review, are reporting that Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods) will both write and direct the upcoming reboot of the Spider-Man franchise for Sony. The film is expected to be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to the report. Goddard, most recently, was the showrunner on Marvel’s Daredevil television show for Netflix before taking writing and directing duties on Sony’s previously-planned Sinister Six film.
As we already know Spidey will make his MCU debut in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, set for release on May 6, 2016. He’ll then get his own solo film, written and directed by Goddard, which will be release on July 28, 2017. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal will produce the film for Sony.
I’ve reached out to some contacts to confirm Goddard’s involvement so check back for updates!
