While things may not be looking too hot for Spider-Man right now, with Sony and Disney supposedly having parted ways (though we have heard negotiations are still ongoing), but Sony looks as though they are still looking straight ahead to the future of the franchise. Now, a new report from Collider states that the studio has locked down a couple of familiar faces for the franchise.

According to them, Spider-Man: Far From Home screenwriters Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers are set to write the next Spider-Man film and that Tom Holland is expected to return. This is all in spite of the drama we have heard surrounding the movie.

It is currently unclear what this means for director Jon Watts. According to a report from Deadline, Disney and Sony may very well end up fighting over him, and he’s reportedly being courted by Marvel. Increasingly, it sounds like all the disparate narratives between the large trades are causing bad blood between the studios, and some are starting to wonder if a deal is even possible at this point.

What do you think of this update? Are you happy to these writers are on board and do you think Watts will join? Let us know your thoughts down below!
