The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s villain-centric spin-off Sinister Six has revealed its writer.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Cabin In The Woods director and Cloverfield writer Drew Goddard will be directing the movie as well as writing it.

The Amazing Spider-man 2 introduces Green Goblin, Rhino and Electro for definite – all who have appeared in the team at various stages in the past – but it’s clear from trailer footage that Doctor Octopus and Vulture are also teased.

Goddard was previously tipped to be Netflix’s Daredevil showrunner, so it’s unknown how his big-screen commitments will impact on his small-screen plans.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is due 2 May 2014, while The Amazing Spider-Man is out now. Order it now on DVD for £10 and Blu-ray for £14.99 from Amazon.co.uk  and find out more about the comics that inspired the film with new digital magazine Uncanny Comics. Thwip thwip.
