Director Jon Watt’s Expected To Return For The ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Sequel

Jul 19, 2017


Today, Variety revealed that talks betwen Sony and director Jon Watts have begun for the director to return for the upcoming Spider-Man sequel. Watts gained popularity at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival after his coming-of-age film Cop Car. He quickly was signed onto Spider-Man: Homecoming after he convinced both Sony’s Amy Pascal and Marvel’s Kevin Feige that his take on the film will be much like John Hughes classic 80’s teen films The Breakfast Club or Ferris Buller’s Day Off. Even though talks have only begun he has yet to officially sign on but expect that to be announced very soon…

It’s also unknown if they will bring back the original screenwriters back for the sequel. Watts originally wrote the screenplay alongside Jonathan Goldstein, John Francis Daley, Christopher Ford, Chris McKenna, and Erik Sommers

It was recently revealed that Iron Man will not be appearing in the upcoming sequel. However, another Marvel hero will be brought on for the film to once again mentor young Peter Parker. Originally, Samuel L Jackson’s Nick Fury was going to take on the mentor role but was replaced by Iron Man. So he could always be a possibility; much like Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon. But on the flip side they could get Chris Evans to return as Captain America for the upcoming sequel as well; the possibilities are endless really…
