Ever since it was announced Spider-Man was going to become a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there’s be rampant speculation normally only reserved for dubious Star Wars: The Force Awakens concept art.
Will they canonise the Sam Raimi films, with Tobey Maguire reprising the role of Peter Parker? Is the Spider-Man going forward actually Miles Morales? Will Peter have a race change in a bid to diversify the McU? Can you expect a reference in the oh-so-close Avengers: Age Of Ultron? How exactly has a hero everyone was sick of only a couple of months ago become the biggest talking point on the internet?
Now those rumours are starting to coalesce into something regarding actual facts. The current suggestion is that, following the character’s debut in Captain America: Civil War, Sony’s 2017 stand-alone movie will see Peter Parker go back to high school, but »

Dylan O'Brien has denied rumours that he has been cast as Spider-Man in the McU reboot of the character.
O'Brien told BuzzFeed that he hasn't been approached to take over the Peter Parker role from Andrew Garfield.
"Professionally, I haven't heard anything about it," he said. "I've only heard from, like, [rumours] online.
"It feels so weird to say. It's so funny. My friends from New Jersey are calling me. They're like, 'What are you not telling me, dude?! Spider-Man?!'
"It makes me feel bad because I'm, like, disappointing a big chunk of fans across the nation. You can tell them that it's not true."
O'Brien added that he found the Spider-Man rumours "flattering" and expressed an interest in playing the Marvel superhero. »
Just yesterday we reported the rumor that Cabin in the Woods writer and director Drew Goddard was being lined up to write and direct the first film in Sony Pictures' new Spider-Man franchise. As of now it's just a rumor, so perhaps there's a chance that someone else could take the gig. The Wrap reports that Anthony & Joe Russo, the directing duo behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the forthcoming sequel Captain America: Civil War, have just struck a new first-look deal at Sony Pictures that will begin in April and last for three years. Sounds like it could be the perfect gateway for them to direct the new Spider-Man. This just just pure speculation for now, but let's not forget that the first appearance of Spider-Man in the Marvel cinematic universe will come in Captain America: Civil War, so it wouldn't be out of the question for the »

The sibling helmers behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Anthony and Joe Russo, have inked a three-year first look deal with Sony Pictures Entertainment. The news stems from The Wrap, which reveals that the brothers’ contract with the studio will commence in April. Will it include that long-discussed Spider-Man spinoff? They won’t say, but they are rather enthusiastic about joining forces with the studio:
“We’re thrilled to make a home at Sony Pictures, and to be partnering with the entire team. The studio has created an environment that is not only collaborative, but truly filmmaker-friendly and we’re excited to begin developing both new and ambitious material with them.”
Currently, the Russos are in pre-production on Captain America: Civil War, which set to arrive on May 6, 2016, and is expected to include an appearance from Spider-Man. The webhead’s involvement emerged after Sony and Marvel struck a deal to »

Hollywood is such a weird place, Captain America: The Winter Soldier writer/director, sibling duo Joe and Anthony Russo had previously made the much-loathed You, Me and Dupree before finding sitcom success with "Community". Now, well, now they are directing Captain America: Civil War, being considered for The Avengers: Infinity War - Part 1 and 2 and have just locked up a three-year first-look deal with Sony. Obviously the immediate speculation is this has something to do with Sony's new pact with Marvel and Disney, particularly with the expectation Spider-Man will show up in Captain America 3 before the new Spider-Man arrives in 2017, reportedly under the direction of Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods), but what have the Russo brothers really shown us that gives them such immediate cred in the industryc I know people liked Winter Soldier more than I did, but was it so good that we're ready to »

Sony Pictures has signed Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo to a three-year first-look deal that begins this April. The brothers and filmmakers will develop new projects for Sony and their subsidiaries Columbia Pictures and Tri-Star Pictures. Here's what Columbia Pictures president Doug Belgrad had to say in a statement regarding the deal
"Joe and Anthony Russo are terrifically exciting filmmakers with a sensibility that matches the tastes of audiences worldwide."
The news comes less than a month after Sony and Marvel finalized a deal to bring Sony Pictures' Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Leaked emails from the Sony hack last year revealed that the Russos were coming aboard to produce Sony's new Spider-Man movie, but that was never confirmed. The Spider-Man reboots hits theaters in July 2017, after the new Spidey debuts in an unconfirmed Marvel movie, which many believe to be the Russos' Captain America: Civil War. »
Yesterday.s report that Cabin in the Woods helmer Drew Goddard would both be writing and directing the new solo Spider-Man movie for the McU set fire to the rain of fanboy nation. Before Marvel and Sony came to an understanding, Goddard was reportedly attached to the planned Sinister Six movie, and fans were all too pleased to hear that he was on track to stick with the web-slinger. However, new information reveals that the search for the new Spider-Man director is far from over. While The Wrap confirms that Goddard is contention, to say that he has landed the coveted gig is pre-mature. Bolstered by information from studio insiders, the trade reports that Goddard is one of "several others" being considered, and that he hasn.t even met with Marvel yet. On the other hand, he is planning on having talks with them, and multiple sources peg him as »
It feels like the growing excitement/hysteria about Spider-Man — whose new solo movie will be written and directed by Drew Goddard — needs to be tempered a bit, particularly the chatter of where the character might pop up first. Indeed, it's widely expected he'll appear in some form or another in "Captain America: Civil War," but comic writer Mark Millar is a bit amused about how much clamoring there is for Peter Parker to pop by given his ultimately small role in the story. “It’s funny though, people always keep saying to me that you can’t do Civil War without Spider-Man, but in the comics he’s only in 6 pages," he told IGN (see the video below). That said, he's glad the character is back in Marvel's hands, even if according to Millar their track record isn't perfect. "What’s great about Spider-Man coming back, from someone who was »

The news broke last night and, whilst it has yet to be officially confirmed, the amount it’s being reported on makes it seem more like the “rumour” that Benedict Cumberbatch would play Doctor Strange – which took months for Marvel to give the nod to – than, say, all of that nonsense that’s been spread about the new Star Wars. The new Spider-Man movie have found itself a director and writer.
That man is Drew Goddard, a veteran TV writer who made his feature film debut with the horror trope-skewering The Cabin In The Woods a couple of years ago. It’s an interesting choice following an interesting turn of events, which has involved Sony apparently ditching their only recently-rebooted The Amazing Spider-Man franchise in favour of starting afresh, co-producing with Marvel Studios.
Which, amongst other things, means that Peter Parker will now be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. »

Sony Pictures and Marvel are negotiating with Drew Goddard to direct Sony's upcoming "Spider-Man" reboot, which will not bring back Andrew Garfield as the title character. Goddard directed "The Cabin in the Woods" and was hired for Sony's "Sinister Six" villain spin-off. It's not clear if the studio is still interested in pursuing "Sinister Six," but all of that will be worked out when Sony meets with Goddard later today (Tuesday). Meanwhile, the "Spider-Man" reboot is set to hit theaters on July 28th, 2017. But first, Spider-Man will appear in Marvel's "Captain America 3: Civil War" on May 6th, 2016. »
A new Spider-Man filmmaking team is now required with a changing of the guard that has seen Marvel taking an active interest in the character's future development and Sony returning to the drawing board, with an approach that hopefully won't involve yet another origin story. Drew Goddard, who was already involved in developing the Spider-universe for the studio, is now talking to his bosses about handling the new film, which is due in 2017.In a development initially broken by the Latino Review (which includes the potentially intriguing element – as yet completely unconfirmed – that Spidey’s first new film might see him going up against Iron Man as an audition to join the Avengers), Goddard will be meeting with Sony brass and Marvel head Kevin Feige to discuss writing and directing the new movie.Goddard, of course, has been busy developing the villain team-up outing Sinister Six. It seems the gathering »
Well, this would make sense. For some time, Drew Goddard had been developing the seemingly-aborted Sinister Six movie spin-off for Sony, that would launch its Spider-Man movie universe properly. Goddard even walked away from the soon-to-premiere Daredevil TV show for Netflix to do it.
Now, though, he's been linked with writing and directing the brand new Spider-Man film, that's planned for the summer of 2017. This will be the first standalone Spider-Man film following the character's introduction to the Marvel cinematic universe (which is expected to be in next year's Captain America: Civil War), and it'll also feature a new face as the webslinger.
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is one of the biggest action stars in the world, both in his muscular stature, as well as his popularity. With Furious 7 on the way this year, and his upcoming performance as Black Adam in Warner Bros' Shazam, that reputation doesn't seem to have any sort of end in sight, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Of course, if this next rumor has any truth to it, he actually could have played an bigger part in the growing DC universe, as it.s been reported that he actually rejected the role of Green Lantern. This scoop was broken just recently on the Twitter feed of "El Mayimbe" from the website Latino Review. This is the second story they.ve reported today following the rumors of Drew Goddard directing the next Spider-Man movie. It's hard to tell which rumor would be the more interesting »
Following the very interesting details about Spider-Man which found their way online earlier today (find those here if you missed them), the trades have added some additional information about where the deal with Drew Goddard stands. As it turns out, The Wrap cautions that it's not quite a done deal, with their insiders adding: "Drew has not yet met with Marvel but will soon; along with several others." The Cabin in the Woods helmer is said to be a heavy favourite and it's not believed he will pass if it's offered to him. The Hollwood Reporter get even more specific though, confirming that the studios are very interested in having Goddard both write and direct, and that he's set to meet them Tomorrow. The deal isn't signed then, but expect to hear something official sometime in the coming weeks and months. Hopefully casting won't take that long! Thoughts? »
Just a few days ago Robert Downey Jr. teased a major announcement to come this week. Did he just get scooped? According to Latino Review, Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) has been picked by Sony to write and direct the first new solo Spider-Man movie, which is tentatively titled Spectacular Spider-Man. That's not too grand of a shock, though, considering Goddard had previously been working on writing and directing The Sinister Six for Sony (he also created Netflix's Daredevil series), before all of their Amazing Spider-Man sequel plans got put on hold and this new direction for Spider-Man was revealed. As for that new direction, Latino Review says they're not going to bother with an origin story, Spider-Man will be in high school, the...

Now that Marvel and Sony are working together on Spider-Man, we.re slowly learning more about what to expect from the next phase of his cinematic life. It was reported earlier today that Drew Goddard may write and direct the next Spider-Man solo film. Goddard was originally set to helm the Sinister Six spinoff film that was supposed to be released in late 2016, but now that the Amazing Spider-Man series is deader than Gwen Stacy (too soon?), both studios evidently think he would be a good fit for the new iteration of the Wall-Crawler. If this deal is finalized/made legit, he will follow in the footsteps of Sam Raimi and Marc Webb, as well as be able to return to the McU after leaving the Daredevil series. With a new director also comes a new creative direction, and with this announcement also came hints of what we might see »
According to all reports, Spider-Man will be making his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in next years Captain America: Civil War, but according to a new rumour, Sony Pictures, who still own the rights to the web-slinger and will be sharing him with Marvel Studios, are already looking towards Ol' Web Head's next solo adventure in 2017. According to Latino Review (who can be hit and miss when it comes to their 'scoops'), Cabin in the Wood's Drew Goddard has signed to write and direct Spider-Man's first solo effort following Sony and Marvel Studio's monumental partnership. Goddard was already attached to Spider-Man spin-off The Sinister Six, which has apparently been scrapped, and has a history with the McU's creative consultant, Joss Whedon, having worked as a writer on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, before collaborating with Whedon on Cabin in the Woods. While Goddard would be a great choice to helm a solo Spidey movie, »

Latino-Review is reporting that Marvel and Sony have identified the man to relaunch the Spider-Man franchise, with Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) set to meet with studio execs this week with a view to writing and directing the latest reboot, which is apparently going to go under the title of The Spectacular Spider-Man.
Goddard had been working on The Sinister Six spin-off for Sony, but it seems the studio has scrapped all of its Spidey plans following the deal with Marvel, which will see a new version of the wall-crawler making his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in next year’s Captain America: Civil War.
The report claims that the new series will forego the origin story and instead begin with a high school-aged Spider-Man already established in his crime-fighting career. Allegedly, a “major part” of the first movie will see Spider-Man fighting Iron Man as an “audition” to join the Avengers, »
