It looks like the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel is about to get the whole band back together. Tom Holland, obviously, will be reprising his role as the web-slinger, and director Jon Watts is already in talks for the next one. Today it was announced that screenwriters Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers will be returning to write the sequel, which is a very smart move from Marvel considering how well this summer’s movie was received.
Okay so you have now seen Spider-Man: Homecoming. You have witnessed Peter Parker’s triumphant return to the Marvel Universe, and his return to being a teenager instead of a hunky, moody 30-year-old who is still inexplicably in high school. And you have the post-credits scenes. (Fun fact: Everyone at Marvel Studios calls them “tags.”) So what do they mean for the future of Spidey and the MCU?
