Director Jon Watts set to return for Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel

Director Jon Watts looks set to return to direct the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming. 


According to the Hollywood Reporter, the director is in advanced talks and is expected to sign on to make the sequel. 

The movie, which has already grossed over $480 million at the box office, marks Tom Holland's standalone debut after he first starred in Captain America: Civil War. He is under contract for three further films. 

In this new movie, we find Peter Parker trying to balance his life as an ordinary high school student in Queens, New York City with fighting crime as his superhero alter ego Spider-Man while trying to impress his mentor, Mr Tony Stark. His biggest challenge comes from Michael Keaton's Vulture, the movie's key villain.

Starring alongside Holland and Keaton are Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Jon Favreau, Angourie Rice, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr. Watts acts as both director and co-writer. 

The movie hits cinemas today (July 5th) and is available to pre-order on DVD, Blu-Ray, 4K and limited edition Blu-Ray steelbook from hmv’s online store here.
