Last week brought word that Asa Butterfield is the supposed current frontrunner to play the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Spider-Man, but today brings news on who could be directing the already confirmed Spidey solo movie.
It was previously believed that Drew Goddard, who had been attached to write and direct Sony’s Sinister Six before the deal was made to have the Webhead appear in the MCU, was in the frame to direct the next solo outing for everyone’s favourite Wallcrawler. Apparently that is not now the case, though.
Deadline is reporting that the current names under consideration are Warm Bodies’ Jonathan Levine, St. Vincent’s Ted Melfi, Pitch Perfect’s Jason Moore, Napoleon Dynamite’s Jared Hess, and Vacation’s duo of John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein.
Certain reports are suggesting that a decision will be made by the end of next week on the director, and it’s also believed that an announcement will be made imminently on just who will be putting on the red and blue Spidey costume in the MCU.
Spider-Man will make his MCU debut in next year’s Captain America: Civil War before then getting his own solo movie in 2017.
