It should come as no surprise to anyone that the incredibly successful reboot to the Spider-Man franchise, Spider-Man: Homecoming will be getting a sequel. Granted, the first film just came out in theaters, but that doesn’t mean the studio isn’t already in high gear working to rake in as much cash as they can with another entry. One of the things that made the film so successful had to be director Jon Watts, and while fans were hoping the director would return, there was nothing solid in the works until now.

The Hollywood Reporter let us know that while there are little to no details about any forthcoming sequels, Watts is in negotiations to return. This, alongside the knowledge that Tom Holland will definitely return as the Amazing Spider-Man, only adds fuel to the fire that this Sony/MCU collaboration on the reboot is going well, and is producing results. So both parties want to keep the team that made this a reality together.

Other than that, there isn’t much information about the sequel… and that’s Okay. The first film did just come out! As of this writing, Spider-Man: Homecoming has already raked in $467.3 million worldwide and it shows no signs of slowing down. The only surprise would be if it doesn’t crack the $1 billion mark, which it should happen in relatively short order.

The as yet untitled Spider-Man sequel is already slated to arrive in theaters on July 5, 2019.
