Last December when Sony announced the Sinister Six movie, it was stated that Drew Goddard will be writing the movie with an eye to direct.

Now it's being reported that the deal is just about sealed as various Hollywood trade sites are reporting that Drew Goddard is close to signing on as director for the Sinister Six movie, which is described by Deadline as an Avengers-like all-star team of bad guys.

It's also reported that both Marvel and Sony hope the Sinister Six movie is the launch of a new franchise. We're guessing as Disney/Marvel hold the merchandising rights to Spider-Man that it continues with the spinoffs (Sony holds Spider-Man film rights).

The Spidey bad guys that will make up the Sinister Six movie are unknown, but it's been said that next month's Amazing Spider-Man 2 will have a connection.

The original Sinister Six in the comics consists of: Doctor Octopus, Electro, Kraven the Hunter, Mysterio, Sandman and The Vulture. 

Drew Goddard was also named by Marvel as writing and directing the pilot episode to the Netflix Daredevil series as well as being the series showrunner.

Goddard also co-wrote and directed Cabin In The Woods, wrote World War Z as well as episodes of Lost and the Cloverfield movie.
