And the Marvel news this week doesn’t stop as the Civil War hype train kicks into its last stretch.
It was announced today at CinemaCon that the joint Marvel-Sony standalone Spider-Man movie will in fact be titled Spider-Man: Homecoming. And it was given this funky retro-inspired logo.
But what does the title mean, if anything?
Some speculation points to the 80’s Homecoming storyline, which is about Spidey’s brand spanking new symbiote suit. Iron Man and Captain America both make appearances in that story as well.
But while the homecoming in the comic’s story was in reference to Spidey returning to New York after fusing with the suit, the movie’s homecoming may be in reference to him returning to his life after the events of Civil War.
At the Sony press conference, Sony motion picture chairman Tom Rothman said, “Peter (Parker) is trying to find his way home.” Tom Holland himself was also on hand to explain “Throughout the story Peter is trying to find his true identity and where he fits into the world.”
The title was announced along with a clip of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) telling Aunt May (Marissa Tomei) that Parker has been accepted for a special grant, segueing then into his appearance in Civil War.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is set to swing into theaters July 17, 2017.
What do you think of the title?
Are we ready for another symbiote story after Sam Raimi and Topher Grace ruined Venom possibly forever?
