Sony and Marvel have found their man to take on the new feature film version of the Web Slinger. Drew Goddard has reportedly been chosen to write and direct the new Spider-Man film, set for release in 2017.
Goddard, best known for co-writing and directing The Cabin in the Woods, was previously attached to the Daredevil TV show before leaving that to focus on Sinister Six, a Spider-Man spin-off project that is now dead. Read more of the Drew Goddard Spiderman details below.
UPDATE: A representative for Drew Goddard denied these claims, however that most likely doesn’t change things. Read More »

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Sony’s on the hunt for a new Spider-Man to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And since the last round of Spider-Man casting was just a few years ago, some fans have wondered if some of the guys who didn’t make the cut the last time around could have better luck this time.
Now a couple of them have gone on the record to respond. Josh Hutcherson says “of course” he’d consider playing Spidey, if only anyone would ask him, while Donald Glover plays coy about his odds. Read the Spider-Man Donald Glover and Josh Hutcherson comments after the jump. Read More »

Spider-Man is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the near future… but Peter Parker might not be. A new rumor claims the next friendly neighborhood webslinger will not be a white man, and will not be Peter Parker. Could we finally get the Miles Morales movie we’ve been waiting for?

Last week’s biggest news, and frankly the biggest news of 2015 so far, was that Spider-Man is coming back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We’ll see him in at least one Marvel movie (probably Captain America: Civil War) before a 2017 Sony reboot that ties in to the MCU. All week fans were debating what this meant for superhero movies, who should play the role, and what it might look like.
That last question has now kind of been answered thanks to ScreenCrush. They took footage from Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and carefully edited it with The Avengers. The result is a glimpse of what The Avengers might have looked like if Spider-Man was involved. Watch the Spider-Man Avengers below. Read More »

Minutes ago, we published our list of 15 actors who should play the new Spider-Man. It’s not an easy list to make because few know exactly how old Sony wants the character to be or whether or not he’ll be Peter Parker.
Well, scratch that. We do sort of know. Various news stories have come out saying Sony wants Spider-Man to be in high school, which pretty much crosses off any actor over 25. Now, another report says the first two names to emerge as contenders are names we mentioned on our list: Dylan O’Brien and Logan Lerman, both 23 and white. That pretty much cements the fact it’ll be Peter Parker.
Below, read more about the new Spider-Man actors, as well as news that Andrew Garfield may have been contacted about possible continuing the role. Read More »
The grand total of cash exchanged between Sony Pictures and Marvel/Disney over the use of Spider-Man is $0.00.
That’s right. According to a report by Variety, neither studio will share profits over any of the films that include the webslinger. Nor is producer Kevin Feige getting anything extra to produce a 2017 Spider-Man film. Everyone will keep the gross of their films, and that’s it. The deal is strictly based on the belief that including Spider-Man in Marvel movies, and making Sony’s movie part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will increase the bottom line for everyone.
Among the other Spider-Man updates are the fact the new actor playing the role will, in fact, be younger and that the planned spin-offs such as Sinister Six, Venom and the female centric film are still in development. Read more about the Spider-Man Sony Marvel deal below. Read More »

It happened: Sony admitted it needed help with Spider-Man, and went to Marvel for an assist. The character will be re-cast, and the new Spider-Man will first appear in a Marvel Studios movie, with a new Sony film to follow in 2017. Marvel’s Kevin Feige is a producer on the new Sony film, along with former Sony head Amy Pascal, and the door is open for other Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) characters to appear in Sony’s effort. This is the situation fans have hoped to see for several years, or something close to it, anyway. But the news also raises many questions. What will the new version of Spider-Man look like? What about Sony’s plans for other movies? We address those questions and many more below. Read More »
