We don’t know if Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts is returning to the film, but thanks to THR, we know that screenwriters Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers are in final negotiations to return to pen the script for the upcoming sequel.
It looks like Sony Pictures and Marvel Studio want to keep their collective creative juices flowing following the success of their first film together by keeping the band together. Jon Watts hasn’t officially signed on but we do hear he’s in early negotiations to helm the project.
Tom Holland is set to return as titular character Spider-Man/ Peter Parker, though we don’t have any information on who else is returning.
The tentatively titled Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 is scheduled for a July 5, 2019 release.
