Spider-Man: 5 Reasons Drew Goddard Is Perfect (And 5 He’s Not)

3 March 2015 4:22 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony Pictures/Wikipedia

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. »

Spider-Man: 5 Big Things To Expect From Marvel's Reboot

2 March 2015 4:01 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

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 »

Spider-Man: Cabin in the Woods' Drew Goddard to direct new film?

2 March 2015 2:17 PM, PST | 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.

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

2 March 2015 1:07 PM, PST | 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 »

Marvel's 'Spectacular Spider-Man' Gets Director Drew Goddard?

2 March 2015 1:02 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before Sony and Marvel announced last month that Spider-Man will be entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sony was developing The Sinister Six spinoff, which had Drew Goddard attached to write and direct. Today, Latino Review is reporting that Sony and Marvel are bringing on Drew Goddard to write and direct their new Spider-Man standalone movie that will also feature the villainous Sinister Six group and even Iron Man from the McU. None of these details have been confirmed by Sony or Marvel at this time, but this report does reveal some very intriguing details, if proven to be true.

Sony is reportedly scrapping all of their planned Spider-Man movies, including The Sinister Six, Venom and Aunt May spinoffs to, "focus on a story involving Spidey versus The Sinister Six." This reboot is reportedly entitled Spectacular Spider-Man, which will not be an origin story, but will focus on a young Peter »

'Spider-Man' Reboot to Include Iron Man & Sinister Six?

2 March 2015 12:30 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony and Marvel have reportedly settled on The Sinister Six director Drew Goddard to write and direct their new Spider-Man movie, according to a report from Latino-Review. The most intriguing part of this story is that it also reveals Iron Man and The Sinister Six will be featured in this standalone Spider-Man movie, which has been set for release on July 28, 2017. Drew Goddard's The Sinister Six movie, and the rest of Sony's spinoffs such as Venom and an Aunt May project, have been completely scrapped at this time.

As you likely know by now, the new Spider-Man will first show up in an upcoming Marvel movie, most likely Captain America: Civil War, where Robert Downey Jr. is reprising his role as Iron Man. While we don't know how large or small Spider-Man's role is in the Marvel movie, "a major part" of the standalone Spider-Man movie features Spidey fighting with Iron Man, »

Josh Hutcherson wants to play Spider-Man: "That'd be really cool"

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".

Dylan O'Brien and Logan Lerman are also reportedly in the frame, »

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. »

'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.

'Spider-Man': Marvel May Have More Control Than Sony

25 February 2015 3:00 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans are still buzzing over Marvel and Sony's announcement earlier this month that Spider-Man will finally join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the beloved web slinger reportedly set to make his debut in Captain America: Civil War, although that hasn't been officially confirmed by Marvel yet. Yesterday, Sony Pictures announced that Tom Rothman will step in for Amy Pascal, who left her job as Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairman and Motion Picture Group president just weeks ago. Some have worried that this may hinder the new Spider-Man reboot, since Tom Rothman oversaw superhero flops such as Daredevil and Elektra during his tenure at 20th Century Fox. However, a new report from Latino-Review reveals that Marvel may have more control over Spidey than originally thought.

The site backs up previous reports that The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 producers Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach are "producers in name only" with the new Spider-Man movie, »

Spider-Man Won't Be White in Marvel Cinematic Universe?

23 February 2015 9:28 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just days after we reported that actor Donald Glover is essentially giving up his "campaign" to play Miles Morales, an unconfirmed Spider-Man rumor reveals that this new version of the character will not be white, and he will not be Peter Parker. When Marvel and Sony officially announced that Spider-Man will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sony Pictures president Doug Belgrad specifically mentioned the character Peter Parker by name, but, if this unconfirmed rumor is true, the rebooted Spidey may be Miles Morales from the Ultimate Marvel Comics. Here's what The Wrap's Jeff Sneider had to say about the rumor.

"This is not set in stone, guys, but I'm telling you right now: Spider-Man's not going to be white. I'm 95% sure. Spider-Man's going to 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. »

'Spider-Man': Donald Glover Ends Miles Morales Campaign

20 February 2015 5:40 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in 2010, when Sony Pictures was rebooting their Spider-Man franchise, a grassroots fan campaign sprung up for Community star Donald Glover to play the Miles Morales version of the web slinger, which the actor himself embraced. Despite a strong campaign, the studio eventually went with Andrew Garfield, who starred in The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Now, of course, Sony is rebooting the character once more, and, while promoting his new thriller The Lazarus Effect, in theaters February 27, Donald Glover was asked if he planned on campaigning for the role once again. Unfortunately for Donald Glover fans, the actor said he would still be honored to play Spider-Man, but it isn't something he will actively pursue.

"Of course, I would always be honored to play Spider-Man. It's Spider-Man. But I just want the Spider-Man movie to be dope, that's all I want. I'm leaving it to them. »

10 Unanswered Questions From The Amazing Spider-Man Franchise

20 February 2015 1:09 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Gameloft

The Amazing Spider-Man franchise is officially dead. The movies were a disappointment, promising “The Untold Story” which fans never got to see. Instead, it rehashed elements from 2002’s Spider-Man, while also introducing some very confusing new plot threads. Regardless, those who did enjoy actually enjoy Marc Webb’s two releases are now left with a long list of questions about the many different characters introduced, the story-lines being set up for a third instalment (and a number of spinoffs), and more besides.

To the majority fans, the recent news about Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures coming to a deal which will see Spidey join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War is most welcome. However, one of the biggest downsides to Spider-Man swinging his way into the world of Iron Man and the Guardians Of The Galaxy is the fact that there are so many unresolved »

Marvel Studios Countdown: Three Things Marvel Should Do with Spider-Man

16 February 2015 5:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The rumors finally became reality. Marvel Studios can use Spider-Man in an upcoming movie, and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and former Sony chairman Amy Pascal will work together as producers to bring the next Spider-Man solo film to the big screen. Though the Marc Webb films have their moments, there was a lot of ill-informed franchise building, where random pieces were being set up for possible use in the future to the detriment of the immediate stories they were trying to tell. An all-new Spider-Man movie (another reboot!) will happen on July 28, 2017, and Marvel has said you’ll see the character in an upcoming movie prior to his new solo adventure. It’s unusual for a studio to cry out for help, especially when the money is still there. The feeling is that even...

10 Reasons Miles Morales Shouldn’t Be Spider-Man In Civil War

15 February 2015 2:32 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

It’s really happening. After leaked emails and months of speculation and rumours, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures announced a deal which will see Spider-Man join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s widely believed that will happen in Captain America: Civil War next year, while it’s already been confirmed that this new Spidey will swing his way into yet another reboot in 2017 in the release date previously held by Thor: Ragnarok.

The revelation of the news has already caused a lot of discussion and debates, with a very vocal minority demanding that Marvel use Miles Morales rather than Peter Parker. Created by Brian Michael Bendis in 2011 following the death of the Ultimate Spider-Man (a character who heavily influenced Marc Webb and Andrew Garfield’s Amazing Spider-Man movies), the young hero has proved to be surprisingly popular over the last few years and the suspicion is that a »

Marvel's 'Spider-Man': What Did the Sony Hack Reveal?

12 February 2015 2:26 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, superhero fans got the news they've been waiting several years for, with Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures solidifying a deal that finally brings Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The official announcement revealed that the new Spidey will be introduced in an upcoming Marvel movie, which, according to several different reports is Captain America: Civil War, before a brand new stand alone Spider-Man adventure, produced by Marvel's Kevin Feige and Sony's Amy Pascal, which is set for release on July 28, 2017.

As you may well know, late last year, when thousands of internal documents were leaked from the Sony hack, some of those documents gave us a glimpse into Sony's plans for the web-crawler, which are well worth examining once more, now that the deal has gone through after several months of negotiations. While some of these details have since been confirmed others have not, so we'll have to »

Spider-Man: first candidates to take over from Andrew Garfield

11 February 2015 10:43 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The new Spider-Man is going to be of high school age, it seems. And the star of The Maze Runner has been linked for a start.

We're very much in the early rumour stages as to the identity of the big screen's next Spider-Man, but already one or two names are being mooted for the role.

Variety is reporting that Sony and Marvel are looking to take Spider-Man back to high school age, Which should be good news for Uncle Ben at least, as it gives him a chance to come back from the grave once more. He'll get his own zombie movie spin-off at this rate.

A couple of names have been mentioned "as being considered for the role" of the new Spider-Man. The two so far have been Dylan O'Brien, from The Maze Runner, and Logan Lerman, who headlined the Percy Jackson movies. Neither at this stage has »
