      Spider-Man 3: Jon Watts Reportedly NOT Attached To Direct

      Contrary to earlier reports, Spider-Man: Far From Home director Jon Watts is not yet attached to direct Spider-Man 3 for Sony. After becoming Sony's highest-grossing movie of all-time, the future of the Spider-Man franchise appeared to be brighter than ever. It was believed that the third film would be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that is currently not the case.Marvel Studios is no longer set to be involved with future Spider-Man filmsfollowing talks over the deal being restructured falling apart.
      This shocking piece of news has many different angles to it and is continuously evolving. When it was initially revealed, the reports stated that Disney wants to co-finance and split the profits of any future Spider-Man film that Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige were involved in. Sony reportedly balked at that proposal - later blamed Disney for the deal falling through - and reportedly are planning to make two more movies starring Tom Holland as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man. At the time, it was also reported that Watts would direct both installments.



      That news originally came from Deadline, but they have now updated their piece to clarify that Watts is not signed on to direct either of the upcoming sequels. They labeled his potential return as an "open question." The report notes one reason Watts may not return is that studios are heavily courting him for other jobs at the moment. Whether or not Watts does direct Spider-Man 3and 4, Holland is reportedly under contract for the two sequels.




      If Watts does not return to direct Spider-Man 3, the reason such a decision is made could be telling. Sony could potentially look to find their guy to bring Spider-Man into their universe and may decide that Watts is not the right fit for such a move. But, he's also directed two critically adored films and is behind two of the most successful Spider-Man movies ever. That said, this could also be Watts deciding to walk away from the franchise if Marvel Studios isn't involved. He was hired to shepherd Spider-Man into the MCU after all, and if he can no longer access parts of the story he was building, then that could be reason enough for him to move on.


      Even though Watts is not currently signed on to direct Spider-Man 3 (much less Spider-Man 4), this is still very early on. It wasn't long ago that the reports said he was directing these films, so something could easily change - maybe even with a
      deal between Sony and Marvel still being worked out. Sony has yet to even announce when Spider-Man 3 is coming or that it has writers attached. Figuring out whether or not Watts will direct could take some time, especially if his decision rests on whether or not Sony and Disney/Marvel will find a compromise to extend the deal. But as of right now, the director's chair for Spider-Man 3 is wide open. And, if multiple studios are courting him for new projects, then there's no reason for Watts to sign on when the status of the franchise has so many questions.

      Spider-Man May Still Be Part Of Sony’s Villain Universe Despite Marvel Deal



      Spider-Man is officially back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he may also crossover with Sony's villain universe at the same time. The future of Tom Holland's Peter Parker now appears to be back on track. After talks between Disney and Sony broke down over how Marvel Studios could stay involved with the Spider-Man franchise, it appeared as though Holland was heading straight for Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters.
      The SUMC was launched with Venom last year and kicked off several other films being in development by Sony - but without the help of Marvel Studios. Now, the third film in the Spider-Man: Homecoming franchise is confirmed to take place in the MCU with a 2021 release date set. Spidey's involvement with the MCU won't stop there though, as he will also appear in another MCU film. This may initially appear to spell doom for the chances of Spider-Man appearing in any of Sony's other Marvel films, but that may not be the case.



      As part of the press release issued by Sony and Disney to make this announcement, comments from Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and producer Amy Pascal were included. One part of Feige's comments on the deal tease that even though Spider-Man is now back with the MCU, he could crossover between both Marvel and Sony's shared universes. Here's what he said:
      He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold.



      Feige's quote is a bit buried in the press release, but it is potentially the most significant aspect of this new deal between Disney and Sony. They haven't shared specifics of what this will mean, but it suggests that Spider-Man's future could include him jumping back and forth between the MCU and SUMC, which are two distinctly different universes. That said, Sony's Marvel films will now become MCU-adjacent projects, as they called them long ago, without forcing them to be part of the MCU's actual canon.
      All of this essentially gives the MCU, Sony, and Holland the best-case scenario. With their own ambitious slate of movies and Disney+ TV shows, Marvel Studios and Feige can concentrate on crafting a narrative around actual MCU films without worrying about Venom 2 or a Madame Webmovie. Instead, Sony will be able to do as they please with those properties and bring Holland's Spider-Man into the mix when they see fit. This deal will allow Holland to continue playing Spider-Man in the MCU (which he loves), but also give him the opportunity to team-up with Tom Hardy's Venom (which he has long wanted to do). Simply put, the main part of Spider-Man's story may stay in the MCU, but he can now go on one-off, side-adventures within Sony's upcoming Marvel films with the potential to link them all together one day.
