Listen, “From (two of) the writers of Spider-Man: Homecoming…” definitely sounds more attractive than “From the directors of the Vacation reboot,” but you’ll have to just split the difference with John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein — and hey, they have a 50-50 (or 25-75?) shot of making a great Flashpoint movie for DC Films…which is a long-winded way of reporting that Daley and Goldstein are in talks to helm Ezra Miller’s big solo project for Warner Bros.
Recently, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has been talking up the Spider-Man reboot, comparing the intended tone to something along the lines of John Hughes’ teen movies in the ‘80s. Have Marvel and Sony found the right writers to deliver that promise? The studios are eyeing the writers of another upcoming reboot to help reshape the web-slinger’s franchise.
