Jon Watts in Discussions to Return to Helm Third Spider-Man Movie

Spider-Man: Far From Home

There has been a lot of Spider-Man news over the last few weeks (and months). First discussions between Sony Pictures and Disney/Marvel were ongoing. Then they broke down. Then Sony said Spider-Man wouldn’t be returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe a few weeks ago. Fast forward to this week when it was announced that the two companies had come to an agreement for the next Spider-Man film. With this new deal brings some clarity about the next movie and also questions. One of the big questions is who would direct. Jon Watts has directed the first two Spider-Man films that have starred Tom Holland in the title role. It appears that he might be returning for the third film.

Deadline is reporting that Jon Watts is in final talks to return to helm the third Spider-Man film. Watts has had a solid trek record with the franchise. Spider-Man: Homecoming brought in $880 million globally. Spider-Man: Far From Home delivered $1.13 billion globally, becoming the most successful film ever for Sony Pictures. It is thought that the primary focus was on securing a deal on this Spider-Man film between Sony Pictures and Disney/Marvel before nailing down Watts as the director. It is expected that a deal should be signed soon.

Jon Watts was brought to direct the Spider-Man films by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. He was chosen off the merits of the 2015 film, Cop Car. The next Spider-Man film is expected to hit theaters on July 16, 2021.
