Tom Holland’s new Spider-Man movie gets official title

Brit actor will star in 2017 reboot

British actor Tom Holland will make his debut in Spider-Man: Homecoming with news of the film’s title confirmed overnight.

Holland announced the title at CinemaCon in Las Vegas yesterday during a presentation he gave alongside Tom Rothman, chairman of Sony Picture Entertainment’s Motion Pictures Group.

Spider-Man: Homecoming will open in cinemas in July 2017 and Rothman was keen to stress the double meaning of the title. “Homecoming obviously is a high school reference. This movie shows the enduring conflicts at Peter Parker’s roots, saving the world and getting your algebra homework done at time,” Rothman said (via USA Today).

“More than that, for Sony, the film is a homecoming to the Marvel Cinematic universe,” the chairman added. “It’s something we and all the fans are giddy about.”

Prior to the stand-alone title, Holland’ Spider-Man will crop up in this year’s Captain American: Civil War.

Guardians Of The Galaxy director James Gunn previously hailed Tom Holland as “the best Spider-Man ever”, comparing his take on the webslinger to Heath Ledger’s Oscar-winning portrayal of The Joker.
