‘Spider-Man 4’: Jon Watts Gives Advice To Marvel’s Next Director

Jon Watts spits some truth!

Marvel Jon Watts Spider-Man Homecoming Spider-Man No Way Home MCU Director

Jon Watts has some words of wisdom! The director provides sage advice to whoever Marvel gets to direct Spider-Man 4 following his departure from the project.

Following the fantastic Spider-Man: No Way Home, Jon Watts decided to step away from the MCU and let someone else take the reigns for Spider-Man 4. While Marvel still doesn’t have a director chosen, it seems Watts is already dishing out some wise words for whoever they chose. According to Watts, it’s a waste of time to do practical web swinging.

“I have a very practical bit of Spider-Man advice, and I think every Spider-Man director goes through it,” Watts spoke to Collider. “It doesn’t look good when someone is just swinging on a rope. You think you’re gonna go in there, you’re like, ‘We’re gonna do it all practical. We’re gonna get a stuntman. We’re gonna be swinging around.'”

“It’s boring. It looks dumb. It looks like a monkey swinging on a vine when you put someone on just a rope. Don’t waste your time. That’s my advice to the next Spider-Man director.”

Many fans may immediately write off Jon Watts’ advice, claiming that pratical is the only way to go for Spider-Man 4. However, given no human alive has the grip strength to fling themselves as far as Peter Parker can, the director may be right on the money when it comes to whoever Marvel gets next. Plus, given his swinging track record in the MCU with Spider-Man: No Way Home, it’s clear he knows what he’s doing.

Marvel’s Potential Directors For Spider-Man 4

While many may object to Marvel letting anyone but Jon Watts handle Spider-Man 4 for the MCU, current reports suggest there are quite a few strong contenders. Justin Lin and Drew Goddard were said to be early frontrunners. However, with Goddard now attached to a sequel to The Matrix and Justin Lin’s One Punch Man movie landing a new writer, both may have their schedules packed.

However, the biggest name in the bushel is by far Sam Raimi. Rumors suggest Marvel is already in talks with the director to helm Spider-Man 4 for the MCU. While perhaps a strange pick in the eyes of some fans, getting the director who made some of the best superhero movies of the early 2000s may be Marvel’s only choice in following up Jon Watts’ Spider-Man 4.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is now available to own on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding Spider-Man’s Marvel Cinematic Universe future and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
