6 hours ago | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

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. »

20 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Cabin in the Woods filmmaker Drew Goddard is reportedly the top candidate to write and direct the next Spider-Man movie for Sony and Marvel Studios.

Goddard had originally been tipped to direct spinoff Sinister Six, even leaving Netflix's Daredevil to focus on the sequel.

Spider-Man joins Marvel: Who could replace Andrew Garfield?

The director will now be re-assigned to re-launch the Spider-Man franchise with a new film unconnected to Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man series, according to Latino Review.

Goddard is a veteran of Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon's television shows Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, in addition to writing Cloverfield and World War Z.

Spider-Man's next solo outing has been dated for July 28, 2017, in addition to the character appearing in upcoming Marvel Studios movies.

The next Spider-Man is expected to be much younger than former franchise star Andrew Garfield.

Report: Drew Goddard Writing Spider-Man Vs. Sinister Six Movie With Iron Man

21 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

I’d been hearing whispers that Drew Goddard was going to be a big part of Sony’s Spider-Man plans but nothing I could really put my weight behind just yet. It seems that Latino Review have been hearing the same thing, but are confident enough he’ll write and direct the new film that they’ve run a full story to this effect.

If the rumour are right, it’s great news because Goddard is a fine writer – as I’m pretty sure his Daredevil pilot episode will remind us all in just a few weeks. He had been working on a Sinister Six movie for Sony, and that was part of why he left Marvel and the showrunner’s chair on Daredevil, but the story now is that this film has been put aside in favour of the essential new Spider-Man reboot.

Nonetheless, Goddard’s plans for Spider-Man »

Reports Claim Drew Goddard Will Write & Direct New 'Spider-Man'

21 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

This is moving fast. Our friends at Latino Review are reporting a big scoop that apparently Disney/Marvel are keen on hiring Drew Goddard for the new set of Spider-Man movies. If you recall, a few weeks ago it was confirmed officially by Marvel that Sony & Disney have partnered up and agreed to share rights to the Spider-Man character. This means that Spidey can appear in the current Marvel Cinematic Universe (and rumors are he'll appear in Captain America 3: Civil War, if not sooner) and that Spidey will also get a new series of movies (throwing out everything established by Marc Webb with Andrew Garfield) following his re-introduction. They don't have a scoop on any casting just yet, but it sounds like Goddard will be taking over the new Spider-Man movie since the Sinister Six project (that he was also attached to) has fallen apart. Drew Goddard is »

Drew Goddard Will Direct The Spectacular Spider-Man Reboot

22 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Exclusive breaking news from Latino Review… Drew Goddard (The Cabin In The Woods) will write and direct Sony’s new Spider-Man movie.

Titled “The Spectacular Spider-Man” the reboot will reportedly avoid the origins story route, instead beginning in a world where the web-slinger is already established.

Spider-Man’s personal life will be set during the High School years and both Sony and Marvel are keen on a new actor being able to grow into the role, which backs-up the previous expectation that Andrew Garfield is out and a new Spider-Man will need to be cast. The hope is the series could work similarly to the Harry Potter saga.

Latino Review report that a major part of the new Spider-Man movie will involve him going toe-to-toe with Iron Man and then attempting to pass an “audition” to become part of the Avengers ensemble.

The first film will involve the Sinister Six villains coming together, »

Editorial: Can The Power Rangers Reboot Actually Work?

28 February 2015 9:19 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

I will not lie, I grew up a Power Rangers fanatic. Sure, I was not around when the original series was on, but I grew up with Ninja Storm and Dino Thunder, two epic iterations of the series. Last year, it was announced that Lionsgate (known for The Hunger Games series) and Saban (creators of the Power Rangers) would be teaming up to bring a new take on the rangers to the big screen. Following this announcement, we received official word that two of the most talented blockbuster writers had joined the film, and would develop the screenplay. Star Trek producer Roberto Orci also joined the film as a producer, and while many had a problem with The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the film was not Orci’s fault, with the star of the film, Andrew Garfield, even calling Orci’s original screenplay “beautiful.”    Now, on paper this film seems to »

28 February 2015 12:35 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Josh Hutcherson has said he would like to take on the role of Spiderman in the Marvel and Sony reboot.

The Hunger Games actor previously auditioned for the role before Andrew Garfield won it in Marc Webb's time at the helm.

Speaking to Yahoo Movies he said: "Yeah, of course I'd think about doing it: It's Spider-Man, that'd be really cool. There's not been any conversations about that, but who knows what would happen?"

Hutcherson had previously pitched for the role unsuccessfully, and footage from his audition tape has emerged.

Do we need another Spiderman?

Spider-Man joins Marvel: Who could replace Andrew Garfield?

Former Community star Donald Glover - who was also linked to the role prior to Garfield's casting - said he would not "campaign" for the part, but added that playing Spider-Man would be "an honour".

Josh Hutcherson to revamp role of Spiderman?

28 February 2015 12:35 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Josh Hutcherson has said he would like to take on the role of Spiderman in the Marvel and Sony reboot.

The Hunger Games actor previously auditioned for the role before Andrew Garfield won it in Marc Webb's time at the helm.

Speaking to Yahoo Movies he said: "Yeah, of course I'd think about doing it: It's 'Spider-Man', that'd be really cool. There's not been any conversations about that, but who knows what would happen?"

Hutcherson had auditioned for the role unsuccessfully but footage has emerged of his meeting with casting agents.

Do we need another Spiderman?

Now Marvel joins Spiderman who should play the webslinger?

If Peter Parker is dropped and filmmakers choose to go down the Miles Morales route, Donald Glover could be in the frame.

But if Parker's tale is rebooted for a third time, names like Hutcherson, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort and Dylan O'Brien could be seen topping a film poster. »

Would Hunger Games Star Josh Hutcherson Be Up For Playing Marvel's Spider-man?

27 February 2015 6:30 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It's been almost three weeks since news broke that Spider-Man will finally be swinging into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (before spinning off into a standalone 2017 movie), and fans are still eager to know more about Sony and Marvel's plans; especially which "young" actor will be playing the Web-Slinger. Well, before being cast in The Hunger Games, for which he's now best known, Josh Hutcherson was among several actors in the mix for Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man reboot. Though that coveted role ultimately went to Andrew Garfield then, would Hutcherson still be game for playing Spidey now? "Yeah, of course I'd think about doing it," Hucherson told Yahoo! last week. "It's Spider-Man, that'd be really cool. There's not been any conversations about that, but who knows what would happen." While previously in contention, the 22-year-old had admitted that even though he wasn't much of a comic book reader, he »

The Hunger Games’ Josh Hutcherson interested in playing Spider-Man

27 February 2015 5:41 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since the announcement of Marvel and Sony reaching a deal so Spider-Man can feature in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there has been a fair amount of speculation on who could play the friendly neighbourhood wall crawler. If reports are to be believed, Sony and Marvel are looking at Logan Lerman (Fury) and Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner) as the front runners.

Back before Andrew Garfield was cast as Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, one man who did audition for the role was Josh Hutherson (The Hunger Games). Now that the role is available again, would be interested in putting on the suit?

“Yeah, of course I’d think about doing it: It’s Spider-Man, that’d be really cool,” Hutcherson told Yahoo! Movies. “There’s not been any conversations about that, but who knows what would happen?”

'Spider-Man': Hutcherson and Glover Talk Casting Rumors

26 February 2015 11:36 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There are two big questions facing the Marvel Cinematic Universe at this moment in time: Who will play Spider-Man? And...Will he be white? We may get those answers next week as Robert Downey Jr. teased an impending announcement from Marvel that promises to be epic in nature. While we wait for next Thursday to roll around, we do have some interesting comments from two actors currently rumored to be up for the role. The first is The Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson, who was actually eyed to play the character way back in 2011, before Andrew Garfield got cast as Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man. The second is Donald Glover, whom fans rallied around as he campaigned for the role of Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man, too.

Josh Hutcherson Still Wants To Play Spider-Man, But Have They Asked Him?

25 February 2015 12:01 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While the search is on for a new actor to replace Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man when the web-slinger makes his groundbreaking cross-studio debut in Marvel.s Captain America: Civil War, some of the rumored candidates from the previous search five years earlier are starting to come back into the conversation. Among the most noteworthy of them is Josh Hutcherson. Now a certified star in The Hunger Games series, the previously short-listed wall-crawling candidate has been fielding questions about the possibility of taking the coveted role this time around . but it seems that he has not yet heard anything about the opportunity. In an interview with Yahoo, the topic of Hutcherson potentially donning the Spider-Man costume was brought up, and while the idea of bringing a prospective "Peeta Parker" to life on the big screen seems like something he.d love to do, it.s not something he has yet been »

9 Ways The Amazing Spider-Man Almost Turned Out Awesome

25 February 2015 8:41 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony Pictures/Marvel

The Amazing Spider-Man is now officially over. Andrew Garfield is a former Peter Parker, The Sinister Six will never assemble (at least not with Dane DeHaan at the head) and you’ll never have to suffer through Electro’s dub-step soundtrack again.

Across two films, Sony managed to take the once most popular superhero in the world and turn him into a bland establishment that life-long fans couldn’t give a toss about. After The Amazing Spider-Man 2 under-performed, the studio were so desperate they went running to Marvel involved, and thus the hero will be rebooted yet again in next year’s Captain America: Civil War (if not in another movie before).

It’s not an overly surprising run of events. The whole sub-franchise was built on Sony’s desire to retain the character (they have to make a new film every few years, or the »

What Are The Chances The Next Spider-Man Actually Is Ethnic?

24 February 2015 11:24 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It was obvious that big changes were in store when Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures teamed up together for the next stage of Spider-Man films. Leaving the Amazing Spider-Man series behind, the Wall-Crawler will be rebooted for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, debuting in Captain America: Civil War and leading a new solo film in 2017. However, overwriting continuity and teaming up with other Marvel heroes may not be the only change in store for the Webbed Wonder. On Monday, The Wrap writer Jeff Sneider reiterated on Twitter that it.s likely the young actor that Marvel eventually hires to succeed Andrew Garfield will be ethnic rather than white. White actors are still going out for Spider-Man but their reps are telling me they think Sony is leaning "ethnic."— Jeff Sneider (@TheInSneider) February 23, 2015 When Sneider appeared on Meet The Movie Press last week, he stated he.s "95% sure" that »

Rumor Roundup: Peter Parker Not the New Spider-Man; A 'Kingsman' Eyed for Han Solo Origin Story

24 February 2015 | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

When news of a new Spider-Man crossing over into the Marvel Cinematic Universe blew up the Internet a few weeks ago, people briefly lamented that this meant Andrew Garfield would not be returning. And then those same people immediately began fancasting the new Peter Parker. But if a new rumor is right, thinking about Peter Parker might possibly have been a bit of a waste of time. The Wrap's Jeff Sneider revealed during his podcast that he is nearly 100% confident that the next Spider-Man will not be a white actor. And that leaves one big, whopping implication: The next Spider-Man won't be Peter Parker. If that's a bit confusing, then you may not know about Miles Morales, the young black hispanic man who took up the mantle of Spider-Man after Peter Parker died...

Next Spider-Man Will Not Be White?

24 February 2015 2:01 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

It has already been confirmed that Spider-Man will appear in Marvel's "Captain America 3: Civil War" and that the superhero will be high school age, which means that Andrew Garfield will not return. Actors like Thomas Mann (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson) and Dylan O'Brien (The Maze Runner) have all been rumored to take over the role. But now comes word that Marvel and Sony are searching for a completely different type of actor. "This is not set in stone guys, but I'm telling you right now, Spider-Man's not gonna be white. Spider-Man is not going to be white," said The Wrap's Jeff Sneider. "I am 95% sure. Spider-Man's gonna be, most likely, black. But there's a chance he could also be Latino. 95% sure, not white. I don't think it's going to be Peter Parker. I really feel strongly. Sony has an opportunity to beat »

When Sony and Marvel came to a deal about the use of Spider-Man, a big part of that deal was getting rid of Andrew Garfield. Nothing against the guy, but Marvel wanted to give a (yet another) fresh start for everyone's favorite webhead. We've heard some casting rumors already in regards to Dylan O'Brien and Logan Lerman possibly picking up where Maguire and Garfield left off, but this latest rumor tosses those casting choices out the window.
