Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far From Home director Jon Watts is not currently attached to direct the planned third Tom Holland Spider-Man film, according to a report from Deadline. This update comes after Deadline’s initial report claimed both Watts and Tom Holland would be participating in two more Spider-Man movies that are in the works. IGN has reached out to Sony and Watts’ teams for comments.
This news comes after the industry-shakeup that Spider-Man will no longer be a part of the MCU after Sony and Disney were unable to renegotiate their deal to share the character. The negotiations (or lack thereof) seemed to play out in realtime throughout Tuesday after Deadline broke its original report that talks had stalled between the two studios. The day ended with Sony releasing a statement on Spider-Man’s MCU departure, referring to it as “Disney’s decision.”
