Director Shortlist And Plot Details Revealed For Marvel And Sony SPIDER-MAN Reboot

Despite reports that Drew Goddard was being lined up to direct Marvel's Spider-Man reboot, Deadline has revealed a list of filmmakers being considered for the job, and they're a varied bunch! We also have details on the tone and plans for a three to four movie arc Marvel wants to explore...

We heard some time ago that Sony wanted Marvel to allow Drew Goddard to move from writing and directing Sinister Six to their Spider-Man reboot, but it appears as if they're still not happy about the way he left Daredevil, as a new shortlist has now emerged via Deadline. It's an interesting list of filmmakers, and one which makes a lot of sense given the fact that they're planning a reboot which will be a "coming of age tale" with a tone similar to "John Hughes humor and emotion."

Those in the mix include Jonathan Levine (50/50), Ted Melfi (St. Vincent), Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect), John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein (Vacation), and Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite). It sounds like a decision could be made as soon as by the end of next week. 

The site also reveals that Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal are possibly plotting a series of three or four movies, each one of which will cover a year in the life of Peter Parker in high school, exploring that area of his life like never before. He'll have also already been bitten by the spider by the time we meet him in Captain America: Civil War next year. Who would you guys like to see helm the Spider-Man reboot? As always, be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place.
