TV & FILM

The most shocking thing about Spider-Man: Homecoming was that it had six credited writers and wasn't a complete and total mess. Normally once you get above three credited writers on a film, it begins to reek of Too Many Cooks syndrome. Well, it looks as though Marvel has narrowed down which of those six writers made the biggest contribution to the film's success and hired them back to write the sequel.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers are the two writers that Marvel has chosen to move forward with on the Homecoming sequel. Director Jon Watts is also apparently close to signing a deal to return as well, so hopefully we can look forward to a similarly fun adventure. The writing team of McKenna and Sommers have both written for American Dad and Community, and also penned the scripts for The LEGO Batman Movie, and the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.
In the meantime, of course, look for Tom Holland's Peter Parker to turn up in Avengers 3 & 4 before he returns for this sequel. Homecoming is still playing in many theaters and will probably be available on Blu-ray in November.
