Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios are in talks with “Spider-Man: Homecoming” director Jon Watts about him returning to helm the sequel.
Watts wasn’t signed on for a sequel prior to the first film’s release, but the news comes as little surprise as both were enthusiastic for it to happen. Sony moved forward fast though when Watts began to be courted for other studio tentpoles.
Watts also co-wrote this year’s ‘Homecoming’ with Jonathan Goldstein, John Francis Daley, Christopher Ford, Chris McKenna, and Erik Sommers. It has already grossed $472.8 million worldwide.
The “Spider-Man: Homecoming” sequel is due out July 5th 2019.
