Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming featuring Tom Holland back in the role of Marvel’s web-slinger is just a few weeks away from finally arriving in theaters. Despite of the film just being weeks away, we are already getting a few new details on the planned sequel that is slated for 2019.
Collider recently chatted with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige along with Sony producer Amy Pascal where they got a few new tidbits about the next Spider-Man film. To begin with, the producing duo confirmed that the second installment will have a subtitle rather than going with Homecoming 2.
“FEIGE: It will be “Spider-Man: Subtitle”
Collider: Okay, so there’s no “2” in the title?
FEIGE: But internally we just call it “Homecoming 2” [for now].”
Given that the sequel is set to hit theaters in 2019, production is going to have to start at some point in 2018. Pascal confirmed that pre-production will start sometime in August while they are considering starting principal photography in April or May 2018. While we don’t know who will be writing the screenplay, Pascal and Feige revealed in a recent interview that they feel very confident that Watts will be back to helm the sequel.
“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.”
Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming, starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Michael Chernus, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Angourie Rice and Abraham Attah, opens on Friday, July 7.
The untitled Spider-Man sequel is slated to hit theaters on Friday, July 5, 2019.
7 Superhero Properties Perfect For Edgar Wright
With Baby Driver set to hit American theaters soon, Edgar Wright is trending more now than he has in years. His name will forever be associated with Ant-Man despite the fact he ultimately walked away from the project over creative differences with Marvel Studios, but that doesn’t mean he shouldn’t get a second chance with the superhero genre. Just look at directors like Zack Snyder or actors like Chris Evans who’ve handled multiple comic book properties without audiences batting even an eye. Honestly, I’d watch any movie directed by Edgar Wright — yes, even Squirrel Girl – so I’m just hopeful he jumps back into the comic world somehow. Hell, I’d even spend top dollar to read a comic book by him if he decided to do something smaller with one of these characters.
Unfortunately, I don’t foresee any of these projects ever happening with Wright at the helm. He’s carved out quite a niche for himself developing his own stories — with the exception of the wonderful Scott Pilgrim vs. the World — and I don’t imagine him comfortably giving up creative freedom to a committee any time soon. But a man can dream, right?
So hit Next and find out more about seven superheroes who are a great fit for Edgar Wright’s unique directorial style.
