Star Trek and Fast X Director Being Eyed to Helm Spider-Man 4

Jon Watts had already delivered the ‘Home’ trilogy for Sony’s new Spider-Man movies, and now everyone is wondering who is going to be taking over for Tom Holland’s next outing as Spider-Man.

While we expect a bunch of different directors to make the short list, one helmer who has worked on multiple huge franchises was said to have entered the discussion.

According The InSneider (via @DiscussingFilm), Justin Lin (Fast X, Star Trek Beyond) is currently in the mix to direct the next Spider-Man movie. No details have been revealed about the story, but it’s said that production is being eyed to begin in September or October.

While nothing official has been revealed about the plot, rumors are going around that Marvel Studios would like to keep things at a ‘street-level’ story for Peter Parker, but Sony is trying to get them to do another Multiverse story where they can bring in some more Spider-Man variants.

We don’t know what the studios are ending up with, but at this point, Spider-Man seems to be over-inflated with multiverse stories (even in animation) and this Peter Parker could use some time to focus on his own life and universe in the meantime.

For now, Sony is still perplexing fans with their approach to their biggest superhero IP, with projects like Madame Web, Kraven the Hunter, and Venom: The Last Dance. Sure the Spider-Verse films have been getting great reviews, but after Beyond, what direction does the studio plan to go?

No release date has been set for Spider-Man 4, but a 2026 release could be realistic.
