Spider-Man Director Jon Watts Not Locked Into Contract, Courted By Other Studios

As the fallout from the broken deal between Disney and Sony, more facts are emerging. It was originally reported that Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home director Jon Watts was signed onto the next two Spider-Man films, but he’s currently not. Additionally, he’s being courted by other studios for other jobs.

Previously Disney and Sony had a deal that Spider-Man, to which Sony had the film rights, could appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In exchange, Sony, which finances their own films, would give Disney 5% off the box office gross. Disney tried to renegotiate terms so they the two companies would split financing 50/50 in exchange to splitting box office gross 50/50. Sony didn’t accept the terms and walked, losing access to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.

Meanwhile, Tom Holland’s film deal was for “three Spider-Man [appearances in other] movies and three solo movies contracted.”
