Drew Goddard directing Spider-Man spin-off, Sinister Six

The director of The Cabin In The Woods, Drew Goddard, is to direct Sony's The Sinister Six movie...

With production set to start on The Amazing Spider-Man 3 later this year, Sony is wasting no time with its plans to keep the screen adventures of the webslinger going. Furthermore, it's known too that the studio is looking to have a film from the Spider-Man universe in cinemas every year if it can. And it now looks as if The Sinister Six project is going to be the first of the spin-offs.

It had already been announced that Drew Goddard was on board to write the script for the union of Spidey villains. Now though we hear that he's also in negotiations to direct the film. This would be Goddard's second directorial effort, after the acclaimed The Cabin In The Woods.

Goddard is an in-demand man. He's writing and directing the first episode of Marvel's Daredevil TV show, which is heading for Netflix. After that though, The Sinister Six looks like it'll be his main focus. Our guess is that Sony will want it ready for the summer of 2017, given that the studio already has The Amazing Spider-Man 3 in 2016 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 in 2018.
