Other candidates:

  • Jon Watts: The director of the three previous Spider-Man films in the UCM could return to the fourth if there is no other candidate that SONY and Marvel Studios like. Well, he was offered The Fantastic Four, but he left the project to do the Star Wars series titled Skeleton Crew.
  • Drew Goddard: Director of films such as The Cabin in the Woods (2011) and Bad Times at the El Royale (2018), he was also responsible for producing the Netflix series Daredevil that has left such good memories for Marvel fans. When it was speculated that Spider-Man 4 would be a more urban installment where characters like Daredevil and Kingpin would be included, this director's name was heard a lot more.
  • Joe Cornish: Director of Attack the Block (2011) and The Boy Who Would Be King (2019), he has a style that could give a boost to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so we cannot rule out that he is the great signing of the next years.

What do we know about this new installment?

Spider-Man 4 will bring back Tom Holland's Peter Parker, he will leave his high school days behind to focus on college while continuing to fight crime in New York City. The story will probably continue in the third installment, so no one remembers him for Doctor Strange's spell. So it will be interesting to see how he continues his new life from that moment on.
