Drew Goddard Spins The Spidey Reboot?

Latino Review suggests that as a result of of the deal--Drew Goddard, who was originally slated to write and direct the "Spider-Man" spin-off "The Sinister Six," will now instead direct the Sony Pictures and Marvel sanctioned Spider-Man Solo Movie.

Goddard's work on "Sinister Six" could well be reincorporated into the reboot as the plan is to apparently do a story involving Spidey versus the Sinister Six.

Former Spidey film series producer Avi Arad is essentially out (he'll still get a name credit), their sources claim the plan is to produce a new trilogy of films which could go by the moniker "Spectacular Spider-Man".

A major part of the first film is said to involve Spider-Man fighting Marvel Cinematic Universe hero Iron Man and then trying to pass the 'audition' to join the Avengers

Despite the fact that the press release issued when the deal was announced mentions original Spider-Man Peter Parker by name, the suits are still trying to decide whether to stick with him or use a different version of the character such as the more recent 13-year-old, half black, half Hispanic Miles Morales who became Spider-Man in the "Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man" storyline.

What is certain though is the character will go back to high school in the next films according to sources. Unlike the previous films, the plan is also to spend more time in the setting and explore his relationships with other students.

Sources add that Teen Wolf series co-star and NJ native Dylan O'Brien and  Fury co-star Logan Lerman, both currently twenty-three years old, are under consideration for the part but no-one has been approached yet.

Marvel's Kevin Feige is producing the new movie with exiting Sony chief Amy Pascal for a July 28th 2017 release.
