Spider-Man: Homecoming has been in theaters for less than a week, but that’s not stopping fans from asking “what’s next?”
Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures’ collaboration to bring the Webslinger into the MCU includes appearances in their crossover movies like Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, but they’ve already confirmed there’re plans for a sequel to this new movie.
“For me it’s just one movie at a time,” Watts said to EW. “I can’t wait to see Infinity War because I know what they’re doing but I don’t know all the specifics but I feel like with Tom [Holland] as Spider-Man in the Marvel Universe we’re just scratching the surface of what we can do.”
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has previously said that Homecoming's sequel will spin out of whatever happens in Avengers: Infinity War and it’s as-of-yet untitled sequel, much like this movie spun out of Civil War.
But the Marvel Cinematic Universe will likely look a lot different when the dust settles from those two movies, so it’s anyone’s guess what a sequel to Homecoming would actually consist of.
The post-credits scene gave a decent indication that Mac Gargan would return and have a bone to pick with Spider-Man — in the comics, that character becomes the Scorpion (and, later on, Venom, but let’s not go there again).
Will Vulture be back? Will he team up with the Scorpion? What about the Sinister Six? AND WHAT ABOUT AUNT MAY!?
So many questions! While we will have to wait a while before we get our next Spidey fix, we’ll be able to get a taste of the character when Tom Holland reprises the role for Avengers: Infinity War, due in theaters May 4, 2018.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is now playing.

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
The cast includes Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, JacobBatalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, with Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr. It also includes Jon Favreau, Martin Starr, Kenneth Choi, Michael Mando, Selenis Leyva, Isabella Amara, Jorge Lendeborg, Jr., JJ Totah, and Hannibal Buress.
