Updated Wednesday, April 13 with official title art.
Sony saved its best for last (or as Sony motion picture chairman Tom Rothman put it, it was his “Steve Jobs move”) — in this case the announcement by the new Spider-Man Tom Holland that the 2017 reboot of the Marvel superhero will be known as Spider-Man: Homecoming. As previously announced, pic hits theaters on July 7, 2017 and this Spider-Man will be fully integrated into the greater cinematic Marvel universe which Disney counts the bulk of. Jon Watts is directing Spider-Man: Homecoming and Marisa Tomei stars as Aunt May and Zendaya as Michelle.
Rothman explained that the title Homecoming has a high school ring to it, but also as Holland said,”Peter (Parker) is trying to find his way home.” Rothman gave a shout out to former Sony motion picture group chair Amy Pascal, who is producing the film. Along with the title reveal, the official logo (seen above) for Spider-Man: Homecoming was unveiled. It’s a bit strange to be excited over marketing, but the Homecoming logo captures the look and feel of the original Amazing Spider-Man comic book logo (included for comparison here), suggesting more of the webslinger’s mirth will be seen here than in any previous Spider-Man film.
In addition, to give a taste of what to expect in Homecoming, Holland introduced footage from Captain America: Civil War, which Disney is actually showing to exhibitors and CinemaCon attendees tomorrow, where Parker enters his home to find Aunt May with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). Stark tells Parker that he has applied for a special grant, and that he has been accepted. This is all news to Parker. The clip was capped off by the scene from the most recent Civil War trailer that gave fans their first look at the MCU version of the wall-crawler.
