There's no word yet on just who will don Spider-Man's spandex suit for Sony and Marvel's joint reboot of the web-slinging superhero, but the flick may already have its writer and director locked down.

Latino Review is reporting that Drew Goddard ("Cabin in the Woods"), who was already on board to write and direct Sony's now-delayed "Sinister Six," will now cover both those roles for the new "Spider-Man" flick. According to the site, "Sinister Six" has been scrapped for good, and Goddard is now focusing exclusively on Spidey, whose new film may be titled "Spectacular Spider-Man."

Latino Review's report also contains an interesting note about the possible plot of "Spectacular," with may find "Spider- Man fighting Iron Man and then trying to pass the 'audition' to join the Avengers." The site goes on to say that villains that make up the Sinister Six will be featured in that same film, and depending on its success, may one day get their own spinoff.

So far, Sony and Goddard aren't commenting on the veracity of Latino Review's report, and it would be wise to treat this as merely a rumor for now. But considering Goddard's existing relationships with both Sony and Marvel (he's also a writer and producer on upcoming Netflix series "Daredevil"), his involvement in the "Spider-Man" project makes sense.

Stay tuned.
