Director Jon Watts to Return For Next SPIDER-MAN Movie, Plus More Details on Renewed Sony / Disney Deal

It is officially official as Ton Holland's Spider-Man will return to Marvel Studios' cinematic universe for at least one more solo film as well as at least one more appearance in a to be determined Marvel Studios movie. Great news all-around as the majority of fans were pissed off at both Sony and Disney for dissolving their partnership just weeks ago.

On the heels of the announcement of a new deal between Sony and Disney to play nice with Peter Parker for a little bit more comes the news that SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING and SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME director Jon Watts is in final talks to return for the third movie. This comes from Deadline, who also reports a few new interesting details about this renewed Spider-Man deal:

"Disney and Sony mended fences last night in a signed agreement.

"Sony has agreed to the terms that Disney originally proposed for its participation in a third Spider-Man movie, whereby Disney/Marvel would co-finance 25% of a third Homecoming movie for a 25% equity stake. The deal also calls for Spider-Man appearing in one more Disney/Marvel movie.

"Despite the hard-balling, we understand Disney came back to the table after D23 when they read the fanboy crowd on how upset they were over a possible rift in the Spider-Man universe. It was there that Holland appeared (to promote his Pixar movie Onward), acknowledging the rough studio talks and assuring fans, saying, 'It’s been a crazy week, but I want you to know I am grateful from the bottom of my heart and I love you 3,000.'
"We hear that as Sony progresses their own Marvel universe with titles likes Venom 2 and Sinister Six, and Disney/Marvel their own, there could be a 'call and answer' between the two franchises as they acknowledge details between the two in what is would loosely be described as a shared detailed universe. Details on that are still early."

If Kevin Feige is the person (and he probably is) who concocted this plan of two franchises sharing Holland's Spider-Man, then he deserves a Nobel Prize.
