Drew Goddard is officially ‘The Man.’ He recently accepted a job as the writer/director of the upcoming Daredevil series on Netflix; and today we’re happy to announce that he’ll be doing the same for Sony with, The Sinister Six. It’s pretty amazing that Marvel now has two Buffy alums with Joss Whedon and Goddard, working so closely on their properties and I couldn’t be more excited! Goddard has most recently directed Cabin in the Woods and also penned the script for Cloverfield.
If you’re unfamiliar with The Sinister Six, it’s basically a bunch of Spider-Man villains who get the good idea to teacup and work together to defeat the Web Head. I’m not sure how it’s going to work on-screen, in the sense of, I’m not sure if Spidey will show up in their movie or if they will be sanctioned by the government/Oscorp or how all that is going to happen.
As more news comes down about The Sinister Six, we’ll be sure to keep you posted here at DFAT!
