According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard will indeed direct Sinister Six, the planned spin-off from The Amazing Spider-Man franchise which he will also be writing. He was originally hired back in December, but there was no deal in place for him to also helm the movie at the time; it was simply an option. Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Ed Solomon are still working on Venom, with Kurtzman already confirmed to direct that project. As Goddard is now confirmed to direct Sinister Six, his involvement with Netflix's Daredevil becomes less clear. We know he's writing that, but will directing this Spider-Man spin-off eliminate the chance of him also directing the first episode when it shoots this summer. We'll just have to wait and see how the schedules all work out, as a lot of this depends on when Sony want Sinister Six by! For now, be sure to sound off with your thoughts on this news in the usual place!
