Drew Goddard talks ‘Spider-Man’ reboot, ‘Daredevil’ season 2 and Marvel

While promoting Ridley Scott’s The Martian, writer/director Drew Goddard spoke about upcoming projects, not being attached the new Spider-Man film and his involvement in season 2 of Netflix’s Daredevil television series.

Goddard isn’t attached to the new Spidey film with Jon Watts set to direct, so of course, fans want to know what happened.

“I think that’s more a question for them, but here’s the good news. I’ve worked with Marvel a lot. The way that Marvel sort of works is they say, ‘Hey, do you have an idea for… Here’s the movies we’re thinking about making…’ They sort of tell you the world what they’re thinking of making, and they sort of put out there, if you have an idea for any of these, come talk to us. … And I think, with Spider-Man, I didn’t really have an idea,” Goddard tells Cinema Blend.

I spent a year working on Sinister Six, and I think I was like in a head space where I just didn’t… you know, it’s very hard to say, ‘Ok, now write a new movie.’ So, it never got taken that far. They know how much respect I have for them. They’ve been very nice to me over the years, and I know sooner or later, we’re going to find the right project. It’s all about timing.”

Goddard reveals to Collider that he was part of the upcoming second season of Daredevil.

“I love Marvel, I still work with them. I was in the writers room of Season 2 a couple weeks ago—it’s going. I think this sort of got portrayed as this sort of animosity, [but] it’s never been the case. They know I love their properties, they’ve been very nice to me, we just keep trying to find the right fit. For me it’s all about how do I make it personal?”

He continued: “With Matt Murdock I just had such a personal connection to that character it was just like, ‘I have to do this.’ I don’t want to—I call it “superhero karaoke”, I don’t wanna be a guy that just takes the comics and then shoots them onscreen. I think it’s our job to treat it as if it’s our run. If I’m the writer of a comic book, you wouldn’t just retell someone else’s story, you would just take that ball and move it forward.” … “I will say that it has been a joy to talk about Season 2 and I think fans are gonna be really excited.”
