Spider-Man 3: Jon Watts in Talks to Return as Director


As you may have heard this morning, Sony Pictures Entertainment and The Walt Disney Studios jointly announced that Marvel Studios and its President Kevin Feige will produce the third Spider-Man movie in the Spider-Man: Homecoming series, starring Tom Holland. The film is scheduled for release on July 16, 2021. Now Deadline is reporting that director Jon Watts is in final talks to return for the film. The information has not yet been confirmed by the studio, but we’ll keep you posted. Jon Watts directed Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home.

As part of the arrangement, Spider-Man will also appear in a future Marvel Studios film. Amy Pascal will also produce through Pascal Pictures, as she has on the first two Holland-led films.

Back in August, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios publicly confirmed that they had failed to reach a deal in which Kevin Feige would continue to produce the Spider-Man movies. That would have meant that Tom Holland would no longer have appeared in Marvel Cinematic Universe films either. Luckily they have now been able to reach a deal.

Sony and Marvel Studios have worked together on two Spidey films, including Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home. The first film grossed $880.2 million worldwide, while this year’s release has earned an impressive $1.1 billion globally.
