New Spider-Man Movie Titled 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'
Honey, Spider-Man's home!
Sony unveiled the official title and logo for their upcoming "Spider-Man" film at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. The movie, which is co-produced by Marvel in their first-ever collaboration, is titled "Spider-Man: Homecoming." Star Tom Holland made a surprise appearance to make the announcement.
"It really is a homecoming for the character because throughout the story Peter is trying to find his true identity and where he belongs in the world," Holland said.
The actor also played a clip from "Captain America: Civil War," which introduces Peter Parker as a high school student in New York City. The clip features Holland, Marisa Tomei (who plays Aunt May), and Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark. Tony offers Peter a research grant, setting up their mentoring relationship, which leads to Spider-Man taking Iron Man's side in his big face-off against Captain America (Chris Evans).
The title also emphasizes Peter's youth (maybe he'll ask Mary Jane to the dance), but also serves as a meta reference to the franchise's return to Marvel's creative control.
"Spider-Man: Homecoming" opens in theaters July 7, 2017.
