Last night during Sony Pictures big presentation and panel at Cinemacon in Las Vegas, The official title and logo was revealed for their highly anticipated new solo Spider-Man film directed by Jon Watts and starring up and coming actor Tom Holland as the new/young Spider-Man, who can first been seen in next month's Captain America: Civil War.
Warning Mild Spoilers for Captain America: Civil War ahead!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony showed a clip from Captain America: Civil War, where Tony Stark meets Peter Parker at his Aunt May's house. Then they unveiled the official title and logo for the new solo film, Spider-Man: Homecoming. At first glance this title almost seems like a joke and is a little jarring especially when you compare it to the Spider-Man movie titles that have came before, but after you let it sink in, its kind of interesting.
Obviously "Homecoming" refers to both Peter Parker being in high school and the fact that Spider-Man is now part of Marvel Studio's Marvel Cinematic Universe. Also of note is that there's a classic Spider-man story-line titled "Homecoming", no word yet on if they will pull plot elements from that story. As for who the villain will be, there are currently some rumors that the villain known as Vulture will make his big-screen debut.
