Watts Returning For “Spider-Man” Sequel?


It looks like “Spider-Man: Homecoming” director Jon Watts will likely return for the upcoming sequel, that is if both Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige and producer Amy Pascal have their way.

Speaking with Collider, the pair say they have every intention to bring the “Cop Car” helmer back. Asked point blank if he’ll return they responded:

Feige: “Certainly that’s the intention for sure.”

Pascal: “He knocked it out of the park. We would be crazy [not to]. He did a wonderful job and the whole atmosphere of the movie, all the things that people like about it are the things he brought to it. He’s really special.”

Watts himself was a bit more hesitant but suggests he’s already signed up anyway:

“I don’t like talking about anything until the movie comes out… [But] yeah I think I’m signed for two movies.”

Feige says within the studio the sequel is going by the working title of ‘Homecoming 2’ at the moment, but that won’t be the film’s actual title. The final title won’t have a ‘2’ in it and will be in the ‘Spider-Man: Subtitle’ format.

Separately, Feige tells io9 that they’ve already worked out the timeline for events in the sequel as compared to the greater MCU and so will begin scripting the movie in the next few weeks:

“Much like, as we went into Homecoming, we knew all the general pillars, you then need the magic of the writers and directors to bring it all to life, So we’re in that same position and we’ll actually start putting pen to paper on the next Spider-Man film in the coming weeks once this film is finally released. But we do know the specifics and the time line.”

The “Spider-Man: Homecoming” sequel is due out July 2019.

Watts In Talks To Helm “Spider-Man” Sequel


Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios are in talks with “Spider-Man: Homecoming” director Jon Watts about him returning to helm the sequel.

Watts wasn’t signed on for a sequel prior to the first film’s release, but the news comes as little surprise as both were enthusiastic for it to happen. Sony moved forward fast though when Watts began to be courted for other studio tentpoles.

Watts also co-wrote this year’s ‘Homecoming’ with Jonathan Goldstein, John Francis Daley, Christopher Ford, Chris McKenna, and Erik Sommers. It has already grossed $472.8 million worldwide.

The “Spider-Man: Homecoming” sequel is due out July 5th 2019.

“Spider-Man” Scribes Return For New Sequel


Screenwriters Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, who worked on this Summer’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” are in final negotiations to return for the upcoming sequel which Jon Watts will once again direct.

The pair were two of six writers with credits on the first film, but are the first ones for the follow-up to the movie which grossed $737 million worldwide along with the second best reviews of the “Spider-Man” franchise.

Their other work includes “The Lego Batman Movie” and the upcoming “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” and “Ant-Man and the Wasp”. Tom Holland is set to return as the web-crawling hero in the film which opens July 5th 2019.

Damon Won’t Be A “Spider-Man” Villain


Matt Damon has reportedly passed on playing the villain in the upcoming “Spider-Man: Homecoming” sequel according to the latest episode of Meet the Movie Press.

There are no details as to what character he would potentially play. Michael Keaton scored acclaim for his turn as the main antagonist Adrian Toomes/The Vulture in the first film.

It is expected that the villain will be one not realised on screen before such as Mysterio, Scorpion, Hobgoblin, Chameleon, Alistair Smythe or Kraven the Hunter.

Production on the film is expected to begin in June with Tom Holland, Zendaya and Marisa Tomei returning.

“Spider-Man” Sequel & Villain To Go Global


Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has confirmed that the upcoming “Spider-Man Homecoming” sequel isn’t just shooting overseas, much of the story will be set outside of New York.

Tom Holland’s Peter Parker previously traveled to Germany to help Tony Stark in “Captain America: Civil War” but otherwise hasn’t left the country. That changes as he goes on a big European adventure. He explains to io9 & IGN:

“We start filming early July. We film in London. We shot first film in Atlanta. And we shoot a lot of films in London but there’s another reason we’re shooting in London which is, yes, Spidey, of course, will spend some time in New York, but he’ll spend some time in other parts of the globe.

We loved how the events of ‘Civil War,’ for as dramatic and intense and politically complex as they were, we loved how Peter dealt with it [in ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’]. And how Peter dealt with it is, he then went and tried to go back to a normal life. What is it like to try to go back to a normal life after what happens in this movie [Infinity War]? Not to mention what happens in the next [Avengers] movie.

It’s fun to see that, because he can represent, you know, the world as a whole, as they try to move forward. And you can do it in a way that is tonally unique, and tonally different than, certainly, the two ‘Avengers’ films that people are about to see.”

Feige also goes on to tell Den of Geek that the overseas setting not only ties heavily into the sequel’s story, but also into the identity of the villain they intend to use – one that’s expected to be someone other than a villain we’ve already seen:

“We’ve chosen a villain, and I think the storyline is fairly impacted by the locations we go to. We love the notion of taking Spider-Man to places around the world that we haven’t seen him in before. And we have a villain who I think will play into that nicely.”

Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers are writing the “Spider-Man” sequel with Jon Watts returning as director. That film is slated for a July 2019 release.

Gyllenhaal In Talks For “Spider-Man” Villain


First reported by UK outlet The List and followed up by several trade papers, it has now been confirmed that Jake Gyllenhaal is currently in talks to play the villainous Mysterio in the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” sequel at Sony Pictures.

In the comics, Mysterio is one of the iconic villains of Spider-Man, most famous for wearing a hemispherical one-way glass dome over his head along with an elaborate cape. In the comics he’s Quentin Beck, a special effects wizard at a major studio who realises his expertise in illusions could make him an effective supervillain.

Though he has no superpowers, he is a master hypnotist, illusionist, amateur chemist, roboticist, and is deftly skilled in hand-to-hand combat. His suit also contains advanced technology capable of projecting gases, holograms and other tricks.

Gyllenhaal is set to star in and produce Cary Fukunaga’s biopic “The American,” about the life of iconic composer Leonard Bernstein, this Fall so his role here is likely to come first as “Spider-Man Homecoming 2” kicks off filming in the UK in July. The actor was famously under serious consideration to play the hero in Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man” films.

Gyllenhaal has Jacques Audiard’s “The Sisters Brothers,” an untitled Netflix art world film from his “Nightcrawler” writer-director Dan Gilroy, and Paul Dano’s “Wildlife” all due out this year. Tom Holland also stars in “Spider-Man Homecoming 2” which opens July next year.

Keaton Returns For “Spider-Man” Sequel


Following today’s earlier news that Jake Gyllenhaal is in talks to play the villain Mysterio in the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” sequel, another name is joining the cast.

Variety reports that Michael Keaton will reprise his role as Adrian Toomes (aka. The Vulture) in the follow-up. Keaton’s character served as the villain of the first film and was last seen in a post-credits sequence in jail refusing to give up Spider-Man’s secret identity.

The film is also reportedly auditioning actresses in their twenties for a lead female role. The new film is expected to take Peter Parker out of New York for a European adventure set in the wake of the events of the fourth “Avengers”.

Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers are writing the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” sequel which sees Jon Watts returning as director. The film opens July 5th 2019.

Tom Holland Reveals “Spider-Man” Sequel Title


Revealed in a way that makes fun of the actor’s penchant for accidentally dropping spoilers, actor Tom Holland has posted on Instagram a message from this weekend’s ACE Seattle Comic Con and in the process reveals the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” sequel’s title – “Spider-Man: Far From Home”.

Holland also uses the message to make fun of the fact that the idea of a “Spider-Man” sequel seems impossible in the wake of the events of “Avengers: Infinity War”.

‘Far From Home’ will be the first “Spider-Man” solo movie set outside New York and will star Jake Gyllenhaal as the villain Mysterio. Jon Watts returns as director of the film which opens July 5th 2019.

Photo: Jackson Back For “Spider-Man” Sequel


Having sat out many of the MCU films in recent years bar a brief cameo in “Avengers: Infinity War,” Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury is coming back in a big way with a confirmation today that he’s set to appear in at least two if not all three Marvel Studios films opening next year.

We’ve already long known that Jackson will be playing a younger two-eyed version of his character for March’s “Captain Marvel,” and it’s widely expected he’ll have at least a cameo in the fourth “Avengers”. In July some set photos suggested Jackson was reprising his role for “Spider-Man: Far From Home” and now the actor has confirmed he’s doing just that with a photo of him getting into makeup as Nick Fury for the film’s shoot.


The Spidey sequel is currently filming in England with Cobie Smulders’ Maria Hill character also expected to be a part of the action. Spider-Man and Fury haven’t met on the big screen as yet which makes the inclusion a surprise.

That film has been the subject of rumors via MCU Cosmic which indicates villains like Chameleon, Hydro-Man and Molten Man may make small appearances alongside returnee Vulture (Michael Keaton) and primary antagonist Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal).

“Spider-Man: Far From Home” is slated to open in cinemas July 5th 2019.

Filming Wraps On “Spider-Man: Far From Home”
