Drew Goddard is in negotiations to direct The Sinister Six. Variety reports that the Cabin in the Woods director, who is writing the film as well, will take the helm for the Spider-Man spin-off film that will focus on the webslinger's villains teaming up together.
The original Sinister Six consisted of Doctor Octopus, Electro, Kraven the Hunter, Mysterio, Sandman and the Vulture and appeared as a team for the first time in 1964 for the Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1. Other teammates have included Hobgoblin, Shocker, Venom, Lizard, Tombstone, Rhino, Grim Reaper and just about every major Spider-Man villain short of Carnage.
Goddard is working on the overarching story, which will develop over several films, with Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner and Ed Solomon. Sinister Six doesn't have a release date yet, nor does the Venom spin-off. Goddard is a busy man for superheroes; he is also writing and executive producing Marvel's Daredevil series for Netflix.
