Drew Goddard On Why He’s Not Directing Marvel’s Spider-Man Reboot

downloadDrew Goddard recently sat down with Cinema Blend to discuss why he wasn’t selected to direct the new Spider-Man Reboot.

With hand-stitched webbing, attachable appendages via button snaps, and even custom “webshooters” that can be easily adjusted and held in place – this is way more cool than any homemade spidey-swag I’ve seen in a while. Take a look through the Imgur album above – and consider leaving a comment complimenting Lisa Ramraj, the talented artist behind the amazing Plushie.

Here at Superior Spider-Talk – we release a lot of News and Features every week; they are all well-written and expertly crafted to be interesting and fascinating for hours – but you don’t have to take my word for it!
