Variety.com is reporting that Drew Goddard is in negotiations to direct that Amazing Spiderman spin-off,which is slated for release at some point in 2016. Apparently, Goddard has already had a pass at the script for the Sinister Six.
Writer/director Drew Goddard first came to my attention with The Cabin in the Woods, which is a great deconstruction the horror genre. He is also a Joss Whedon protege with great nerd credits having written for Buffy and LOST.
Now comes the rub. In December 2013, Marvel.com sent out a press release that Goddard would be the executive producer and show runner for their 13-episode Daredevil series premiering on Netflix in 2015. The Variety story does not address this potential conflict, which could suggest that it is not one at all. If it isn’t a conflict, this fella will certainly be busy for the next few years.
