Writers onboard for Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel

August 31st, 2017 by Dave Bowling Comments

We were kinda worried about Spider-Man: Homecoming. The fear of too many cooks from both Disney and Sony spoiling the broth luckily wasn’t borne out and we got an entertaining little film at the end.

Anyhoo, reports are that Spider-Man: Homecoming writers Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers are in final negotiations to write the sequel and Jon Watts is already in talks to direct. The sequel, which Kevin Feige has said will mercifully not be called “Homecoming 2”, is already scheduled for release on 5 July 2019. Furthermore, Peter Parker himself, Tom Holland, recently confirmed a third film is in the works.

The Homecoming sequel will feature Parker in his Junior year at Midtown School of Science and Technology in the aftermath of the events of Avengers: Infinity War. Holland is of course appearing as Spidey in both parts of Infinity War, so it seems to confirm that at least one of the heroes is making it out of this thing alive.

So, it looks like the threat of Sony taking their ball home and once again spectacularly failing to produce a decent Spider-Man movie has passed for now. Here’s hoping it stays that way. [walks off, grumbling about sheer, unfettered insanity of a non-Spidey Venom movie]

He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
