What's This?

Marvel and Sony are partnering in the production of the rebooted Spider-man movie and it was expected that Drew Goddard would be directing the upcoming film. The creator and writer of the Daredevil TV series has finally declared that he isn’t directing the most anticipated movie.


Goddard, who is currently working on Sony’s Sinister Six spinoff, said that the views and ideas on the superhero character has changed a lot lately and he does not have any new interesting concept for the movie. Goddard is currently promoting Sir Ridley Scott’s “The Martian,” an adaptation of Andy Weir’s novel at the annual film festival in Toronto, according to Cinema Blend.

Goddard told Cinema Blend when was asked why isn’t he directing Spiderman that “I think, with Spider-man, I didn’t really have an idea. Part of that might have just been because I had just written one. I spent a year working on Sinister Six, and I think I was like in a head space where I just didn’t… you know, it’s very hard to say, ‘Ok, now write a new movie.’”

“So, it never got that far. We never, it never got taken that far. They know how much respect I have for them. They’ve been very nice to me over the years, and I know sooner or later, we’re going to find the right project. It’s all about timing,” added Goddard.
