Don't know much about either, but Watts is just the latest of a new trend of indie director getting called up to the big leagues. That trend for the most part has been coming up with good results. Edwards did OK with the Godzilla reboot(I personally didn't care for it) and Universal did really well with Trevorrow. Though Josh Trank with the Fantastic 4 reboot has been a disaster for the most part and got fired from Star Wars. Vogt‑Roberts with Skull Island is another example of an upcoming indie jump. So just because he is a no-name with a small resume doesn't mean it can't work.Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios are proud to announce that after a full worldwide casting search, Tom Holland will play Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the next Spider-Man film, in theaters in IMAX and 3D on July 28, 2017. The film will be directed by Jon Watts, director of "Cop Car," the upcoming thriller that made its debut earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival.
I would assume Holland will first appear in Civil War.
