Sony Confirms "Spider-Man: Homecoming" Title for Reboot
There was wide speculation that the Spider-Man reboot would be called Spider-Man: Homecoming after the domain name was registered, but now we have official confirmation that that is, in fact, the name of the upcoming film. Sony has just announced the title at CinemaCon, where they also presented the first footage featuring Tom Holland's Spidey, Marisa Tomei's Aunt May, and none other than Iron Man himself.
The footage hasn't been released online yet, but according to THR, it "showed Holland's Parker meeting Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark, who drops by his Aunt May's (Marisa Tomei) house." It's unclear whether that means it's their first meeting, which would mean that the movie takes place before Peter Parker's introduction in Captain America: Civil War. I tend to doubt it, especially since the solo film seems to be sidestepping the origin story, but it's possible.
Homecoming isn't a great name or anything, but it's unobjectionable (especially compared to some of the other options), and it conveys the John Hughes-ish vibe they're going for. Hopefully it won't focus too heavily on the teen drama, but it would be fun to see Holland get anxious about asking Zendaya to a Homecoming dance.
Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters on July 7, 2017.
