Marvel and Sony’s “Spider-Man” Gets Title and Release Date

Spider-Man: Homecoming

The new Spider-Man reboot officially has a title. Marvel and Sony’s joint production will now be known as Spider-Man: Homecoming. Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman confirmed the news last night at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. In regards to the title, Rothman said that it has a double meaning, referring to both the high school event and Peter Parker’s long-awaited homecoming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Which makes total sense as the studios will be introducing a high school-aged Parker.

Directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car) and written by Vacation scribes John Francis Daley and Johnathan M. Goldstein, Spider-Man: Homecoming is due out in theaters July 7, 2017, but it won’t be the first time we see Tom Holland as MCU’s web-slinger. Holland will have a crucial role in Anthony and Joe Russo’s Captain America: Civil War, which arrives in less than a month. The idea of a Spider-Man solo film between Marvel and Sony was a bit surprising at first, but Marvel chief Kevin Feig clarified the relationship between the two studios. Homecoming will indeed be a Sony Pictures production, but Marvel will be acting as the “creative producer” for the franchise to properly bring Spider-Man into their universe.

In addition to the title announcement, Tom Holland previewed never-before-seen footage from Homecoming. The clip finds Holland’s Parker walking into his home where Aunt May (played by Marisa Tomei) is talking with Tony Stark. It was previously reported that Stark would be making an appearance in Homecoming.

We’ve got a ways until Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters, but early reactions to Civil War applauded Holland’s portrayal.
