‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Director Not Yet Confirmed For Sequel

Spider-Man Homecoming Sequel Director Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts has opened up and revealed he isn’t too sure whether or not he’ll be returning to helm the planned sequel for the latest Spidey flick.

For Homecoming, Watts campaigned for the directing gig as he cut together a sort of fake trailer using clips that captured mood and essence of the film he wanted to make. Recently it seemed likely Watts would be returning for another Spider-Man film as the director had said he thought he was signed on for two movies along with producer Amy Pascal saying it would be crazy for them not to bring Watts back and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige assuring their intention is for him to return, however, in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the director explained he’s taking it one movie at a time at the moment:

“For me it’s one movie at a time. I can’t wait to see Infinity War because I know what they’re doing but I don’t know the specifics. I feel like with Tom and with Spider-Man in this Marvel universe we’re just scratching the surface of what we can do.”

While Watts was reluctant to officially confirm his return for another installment, Peter Parker himself, Tom Holland was confident Watts would return telling the outlet, “[Watts] is coming back for the next one. We can’t do another Spider-Man movie without Jon Watts.”

The film stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly and Bokeem Woodbine, as well as Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Michael Chernus, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Angourie Rice and Abraham Attah. Here’s the official synopsis:

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is now playing. You can check out our review for the film here.

Spider-Man Movie CharactersSo far there have been 5 Spider-Man films with the sixth one, Spider-Man:Homecoming being released today. With this amount of films we have seen a variety of characters make it to the big screen. They have been both good and evil characters and they have all brought their unique abilities and traits to aid in and get in the way of Peter Parker.

While we have seen several characters, there are still many more that have yet to be seen hit the big screen in a live-action movie. Spider-Man’s character list, including his villains, is one of the best in all of comics and it’s surprising that some of these characters have yet to make a film appearance.
