‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ director to direct ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’

  • June 20, 2021

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has given the green light for director Jon Watts to direct “Spider-Gwen” at the studio.

It was previously reported that Sony would be developing the film with Sony Pictures Television.

The news comes on the heels of a rumor that Sony is looking to bring Watts onboard for “Spider Man: Home” and a recent report that the studio was working on a deal to bring the “Gwen Stacy” character to life.

The film is expected to hit theaters May 2, 2019.

In addition to Watts, Sony is reportedly developing “The Amazing Girlfriend,” with Amy Pascal attached to direct.

“Spider” has been a major part of Sony’s summer slate this year, including “Captain America: Civil War,” “Thor: Ragnarok,” “Iron Man 3,” and “Captain Marvel.”
