Has the Name of Marvel's Spider-Man Solo Movie Been Revealed?
Did we just discover the title for the new Spider-Man reboot (or at least the working title)? According to a new report, the 2017 film starring Tom Holland will be called Spider-Man: Homecoming.

According to BBC, Sony just registered the domain name SpiderManHomecomingTheMovie.com. That doesn't mean that this is definitely the title for the movie; on the one hand, a registered domain name was how fans discovered the new James Bond movie was called "Skyfall," but on the other hand, all those registered domain names for Batman v Superman turned out to be incorrect (although, incidentally, several of them were better than Dawn of Justice).

So it's little more than a rumor for now, but if it's true, that could have several different implications for the plot of the movie. Aside from being a nod to the fact that Spider-Man has finally "come home" to Marvel, the title is shared by an ongoing Spider-Man comic series which features appearances from Iron Man and Captain America. Assuming both characters survive Civil War (and that the Spider-Man solo film takes place after Civil War), we could be seeing cameos from Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans (or possibly Anthony Mackie). It also features the first appearance from Venom since the Secret Wars reboot, but considering that Sony is somehow trying to start a Venom franchise without Spider-Man, it seems unlikely that the supervillain will appear in the film. 

Not to mention that Marvel and director Jon Watts have been very clear that this movie will have a "John Hughes-esque" type of vibe, which could easily mean that an actual homecoming dance will be in the mix. As long as it doesn't become too melodramatic, I think that would be perfectly cute.

The Spider-Man solo film is set to hit theaters on July 7, 2017.
