20th Century Fox CEO Tom Rothman has revealed that Josh Trank is involved in developing a new instalment of the Marvel Comics adaptation.
Rothman told Collider that Trank "is going to come on and work on a take, or a vision, that he has for it, so we're very excited about that".
Trank's specific involvement on the project remains unconfirmed.
"Well, I think there's a possibility of [him directing]," said Rothman. "I mean he's going to develop it now, and then it depends on the script."
Trank was first rumoured to be attached to the third Fox film of the classic Marvel franchise in January.
He has also been linked to Sony's Spider-Man spinoff Venom and Warner Bros comic adaptation The Red Star.
Trank is due to return for Fox's Chronicle 2.
