Drew Goddard To Direct SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN; 'Iron Man' And 'Sinister Six' To Appear?

According to a new report, Drew Goddard is set to write and direct Spectacular Spider-Man for Marvel and Sony, with Iron Man and the Sinister Six both set to play major roles. Hit the jump for details on that, who they're looking to cast, what's happening to the spinoffs, and more.

Latino-Review have dropped a massive scoop about Spectacular Spider-Man. Yup, it sounds like that's the title being considered by Marvel and Sony in what they hope will be a three part series coming out over three consecutive summers. Everything which was being developed by Sony (including that Aunt May spinoff) has now been scrapped, including the standalone Sinister Six movie. However, Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) isn't out of a job as he's set to write and direct Spectacular Spider-Man. That seems like a fitting title, and differentiates it from Amazing.

So, story details! As expected, there will be no origin story and the movie will take place in high school. However, they're thinking long term, as the actor cast as Spider-Man (likely an unknown, and NOT Dylan O'Brien as one redditor claims) is set to be involved with multiple trilogies similar to Harry Potter as we follow his journey over a number of years. Here's the really interesting stuff though. According to the site, "A major part of the first film will involve Spider- Man fighting Iron Man and then trying to pass the “audition” to join the Avengers" while "The first film will involved the Sinister Six coming together with the thought to later maybe spin them off."

For those of you who are sceptical, The Wrap is also running with this story, so stay tuned. Badass Digest meanwhile claims that Spider-Man might also appear in Doctor Strange...thoughts?
