Well, it seems Marvel must be pretty impressed with how Drew Goddard writes for a costumed vigilantes jumping around New York rooftops. According to Deadline, the Daredevil showrunner now has a meeting about possibly writing and directing the Spider-Man reboot that Marvel's Kevin Feige is helping Sony out with. Goddard was previously attached to write and direct Sony's Sinister Six Spider-Man spin-off film before the studio decided to instead just reboot things again, so if this work out, this will be a pretty nice promotion for him. Because no one likes having to work on the group project.

Leonardo DiCaprio may have found himself the most complex, fascinating, difficult role yet for him to not win an Oscar for. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor is attached to play a man with 24 different personalities in The Crowded Room. Taking a part that--like an Academy Award--he has "eyed for nearly 20 years," DiCaprio would play Billy Milligan, a pioneer in the insanity defense. In the late '70s, Milligan was charge with robbery and multiple rapes at Ohio State University but managed to get off by way of the first acquittal by multiple personality disorder, lawyers claiming that his other selves committed the crimes without his knowledge. It's a film based on real life, and a role based in mental illness and showcasing a variety of convincing characters. Really, the only way this could be better set up as Best Actor awards bait is if it did not star Leonardo DiCaprio.

Is this all legal? Probably fucking not; despite parody fair use, there's likely an issue with actually using the Who's the Boss theme song. But it is very much worth watching:
