Although a second Spider-Man entry has been confirmed as the first movie post-Avengers 4, the project is still without a director and Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts has yet to sign on the dotted line.
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly to help promote Homecoming, Watts reflected on career moves, stating he's taking steps forward one movie at a time.
"For me it's one movie at a time. I can't wait to see Infinity War because I know what they're doing but I don't know the specifics," Watts said. "I feel like with Tom and with Spider-Man in this Marvel universe we're just scratching the surface of what we can do."
More likely than not, this is simply a case of Watts playing coy and not wanting to put the cart before the horse; Homecoming is off to stellar reviews and a 92% certified fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. This seems to be one of the "when-not-if" situations as Marvel Studios and Sony waits for the movie show throughout its debut weekend before confirming anything.
While we wait for official confirmation from the studios heading up the yet-to-be-named Spider-Man Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel, actor Tom Holland is surely it's going to happen.
"[Watts] is coming back for the next one," the actor behind Peter Parker said. "We can't do another Spider-Man movie without Jon Watts."
Spider-Man: Homecoming is now in theaters.
