CBMB: Marvel is Narrowing Their List for Spider-Man Director

By Muuka Muyumba

Deadline is reporting that St. Vincent director Ted Melfi and Warm Bodies director Jonathan Levine are on the final shortlist to direct Marvel and Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man solo film.

Also still in consideration are the writer/director duo John Francis Daley & Jonathan M. Goldstein (Vacation, Horrible Bosses), as well as Jon Watts who directed the recent Sundance film Cop Car with Kevin Bacon.

The initial reaction to these names is that they are all white men lined up to head this series while Marvel has yet to name a woman or person of color to direct their films. I wonder whether there will be enough of a backlash for Marvel to rethink this shortlist.
