Goddard's move from Netflix's 'Daredevil' more of a rearrangement than a split

According to Cinema Blend on Sunday, a recent announcement of Drew Goddard's leaving Netflix's "Daredevil" gave reason of concern to those thinking where the show would be headed and that trouble would be brewing for the series. Edgar Wright also parted ways with Marvel Studios, but in Goddard's case he considered it more of a rearrangement than a split altogether. In fact, this move would likely escalate the ability to bring the Sinister Six characters to the big screen.

Apparently, there would be a transition of Goddard moving from Marvel to Sony in respects of taking his efforts towards the "Sinister Six" movie. "Buffy the Vampire Slayer's" Steven S. DeKnight will be taking the reigns of "Daredevil."

Implications seem to suggest that Sony Pictures may be putting the "Sinister Six" movie before "The Amazing Spider-Man 3." Goddard's move to work on the next film in the franchise may have been the motivating factor in which the order of these films could be released. As suggested at the end of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2", Norman Osborn, as played by Dane DeHaan, suggested gathering a small group of individuals to take on his own sinister-like agenda. That being said, it would make sense to tie that little tease to the likelihood of "Sinister Six" being next on deck of the Sony Pictures franchise.

Rhino, as played by Paul Giamatti, is likely the first of the six in this small team. Oscorp also has on display the many technologies suggesting future utilization of the next slew of characters in the corporate que such as Doctor Octopus and Vulture. Mysterio was also suggested. Webb also mentioned desiring Kraven the Hunter to be in the third "Spider-Man" movie. This move made for Goddard may be speculative of the already reserved date of June 10, 2016 for "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" which could be instead swapped out for "Sinister Six".
