Even as the first film clings to a solid place in the box office charts, the pieces are starting to come together for a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming. The latest recruits are Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, two of the writers who worked on the original.

Nothing has been announced about what the sequel will use to challenge young Peter Parker (Tom Holland), though the movie, given its links to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will be one of the first to deal with the fallout of the second Avengers: Infinity War film. And from the sounds of it, Sony and Marvel are looking to keep many of the people behind the scenes in place for the next solo Spider-outing, as director Jon Watts is putting together his own deal to return.

McKenna and Sommers, who have worked on shows such as American Dad! and Community, contributed to The Lego Batman Movie and have credits on Ant-Man And The Wasp. As for Homecoming, they scored screenplay credit alongside Jonathan Goldstein, John Francis Daley, Christopher Ford and Watts.

Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 (if that ends up as its title) has a US release date set for 5 July 2019, so it's good that someone will at least start coming up with a script...
