Spider-Man: Far From Home grossed over $1 billion for Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios. But with the studios no longer working together and Sony apparently preparing to continue the franchise on its own, a lot of questions have been raised regarding who will actually be returning. However, at this time, it looks as though at least part of Far From Home's creative team will be making a comeback.
Deadline reports Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers -- Far From Home's screenwriters -- are currently attached to write Sony's next Spider-Man movie, which will see Tom Holland reprising his role as the title character. In addition to Far From Home, McKenna and Sommers have penned such films as Spider-Man: Homecoming, Ant-Man and the Wasp and The Lego Batman Movie.
Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige has evidently departed the Spider-Man franchise in the wake of Sony and Disney's divorce. Additionally, it is currently unclear if Homecoming and Far From Home director Jon Watts will be returning for Sony's future Spidey films. Watts was reportedly only signed on to helm the first two movies, and with more reports suggesting he is being courted for a new Marvel project under the Disney banner.
Nevertheless, these reports suggest that -- in addition to Holland's return -- at least part of the behind-the-scenes team will continue their work on the franchise. McKenna and Sommers' script for Sony's Spider-Man threequel will apparently follow the big mid-credits twist from Far From Home, which saw Peter Parker's secret identity outed to the masses.
Director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr, with Marisa Tomei and Jake Gyllenhaal.
