The Sinister Six Spider-Man Spin-Off Movie Already Has Its Director

And hey, it just happens to be the movie's screenwriter! The Hollywood Reporter says Sony has hired The Cabin in the Woods' Drew Goddard to also direct the movie. But here's my question: If Sinister Six is truly a spin-off, does that mean we won't see them fight Spidey himself?

That would be a bummer and completely insane. But I don't know why Sony is calling this a spin-off unless Spider-Man isn't a main player in it; if he was, the movie would just be another installment, right? Maybe this movie introduces them, and they'll fight Spidey in Amazing Spider-Man 3 or 4... but then what will the Sinister Six do during their movie? Fighting Spider-Man is kind of their thing.
