Sony chairman Tom Rothman and new Spidey actor Tom Holland announced the title of the new Spider-Man movie reboot at Sony’s CinemaCon presentation on Tuesday. It will be called Spider-Man: Homecoming.
This is the film that Sony is making in conjunction with Disney, which will cement one of Marvel’s most iconic characters in the MCU after his introduction in Captain America: Civil War. As such, you can’t help wondering if there’s something slightly meta about the choice of title – Spider-Man is coming home to the Marvel fold! – but Rothman had another explanation.
According to Deadline, Rothman explained that the title Homecoming has a high school ring to it, but Holland added,”Peter (Parker) is trying to find his way home.” Hang on, where’s he left at the end of Civil War, then? Wakanda? Although, he’s probably speaking metaphorically.
In addition, Holland introduced footage where Parker enters his home to find Aunt May (Marisa Tomei )with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr). Stark tells Parker that he has applied for a special grant, and that he has been accepted, which is all news to Peter.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is due for a July 2017 release.
