Drew Goddard Directing Spider-Man Is Not Yet Set In Stone

The following report from Deadline claims these directors are being considered to helm the next Spider-Man film.

  • Jonathan Levine (50/50)
  • Ted Melfi (St. Vincent)
  • Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect)
  • John Francis Daley &Jonathan Goldstein (Vacation)
  • Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite)

Executive Producers Kevin Feige (Marvel) and Amy Pascal (ex Sony) are looking to tell a coming-of-age tale, with humor along the lines of a John Hughes and emotion. Although none of these directors have experience doing action type films, they all had their hands in some sort of comedy and drama tones.

Taking this rumored list into consideration for a second, I’m more curious about why Drew Goddard isn’t on this list? He’s close friends with Joss Whedon who’s been letting off some steam as of late, so i’m wondering if that made Goddard hesitant. Its all hypothetical at the moment, but I liked the idea of Goddard directing. He was actively developing a Sinister Six film before the Marvel-Sony deal became official and served as executive producer and partially wrote the Netflix hit Daredevil.

Captain America: Civil War has already began filming, so a Spider-Man casting announcement, along with a director is on the horizon. Who would you like to see direct the Marvel/Sony produced Spider-Man film?
