Sony and Marvel have named a creator to take on the new feature film version of the Spider-Man. Drew Goddard has reportedly been chosen to write and direct the new Spider-Man film, set for release in 2017.

The site also believes this film, which will be released July 28, 2017, will be called The Spectacular Spider-Man to differentiate it from the other two series.

The report says the film will feature an unknown in the role, with the aim that the character can get a few movies in his young, high school years. Then maybe even more after that.

Comic Book Resources added that from a representative of Drew Goddard and was told the director “hasn’t met on the title yet,” but that was really anything either way. Deadline says that Goddard is “meeting” to write and direct.
