The original team that wrote Spider-Man: Homecoming are back for the sequel. Read on…
Once again, Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, two of the writers of Homecoming, are currently in negotiations to return for the still-untitled sequel. Variety also reports that sequel will be another co-production between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures. Not only that, but the Homecoming director Jon Watts will return to the director’s chair. He will also be behind the penn alongside McKenna and Sommers.
We have to admit the storyline and action was great, we had a problem with Tom Holland not being a strong lead in the film. We felt the supporting cast is what made the movie great, Tom was a bit lackluster.
Apparently, that doesn’t matter, because the MCU is reading for part 2. Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 is sizing down it’s original 6 writers to 3. Christopher Ford, John Francis Daley, and Jonathan Goldstein won’t be along for another ride. Though, Homecoming was one on the top tier entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that was due to the story telling.
The good thing about three of the original writers returning is that the movie will continue the same blend of humor, heart, and gravitas that made the original fulfilling film.
