Let's take a look at the different ways to talk about the future. The first form of future would be to take a sentence in the present and just add a temporal adverb which describes a point in the future, as in:
The next step is the Futur I, which is formed with "werden + Infinitiv"
And finally, there is Futur II, which is formed with "werden + Perfekt"
So it seems that they are pretty similar and it is probably save to say, that you can use them equally.
