Jon Watts In Talks To Helm Spider-Man Sequel
It sounds like Jon Watts may be returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Marvel and Sony have both entered talks with the Spider-Man: Homecoming director to return for the sequel to the hit film. Watts also co-wrote the script alongside Jonathan Goldstein, John Francis Daley, Christopher Ford, Chris McKenna, and Erik Sommers.
While Watts has yet to officially sign on, the fact that the studios are looking to bring him back on for another Spider-Man movie really shouldn't come as that big a surprise.
Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal are returning to produce.
The studios have already locked the sequel in for release on July 5, 2019, with Tom Holland back in the role of the titular hero. Zendaya and Marisa Tomei are also expected to return. The Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel will follow the events of the highly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War, which opens on May 4th, 2018.
