Sony Pictures chair Tom Rothman revealed the newest title for our friendly neighbourhood reboot at CinemaCon in Las Vegas last night.

It will be known as:


He said it was a way to reference the web-slinger’s pre-adult era, one that hasn’t really been explored in the other films. The chairman said that “Peter (Parker) is trying to find his way home.” Whatever that means.

The film, which will star British actor Tom Holland as the wall-crawler, is due to be released next year in July.


He is the third actor to take on the role, after Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spider-Man 1/2), and Toby Maguire (Spider-Man 1/2/3).

Footage which was shown exclusively at the event showed the teenage Peter Parker coming home to his Aunt May, who will be played by Marisa Tomei. The footage also showed Tony Stark (played by Robert Downey Jr.).

This comes as no surprise after the light deal Marvel and Sony made over the character. We will now see Spider-Man is a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel’s president, Kevin Feige, confirmed that upcoming Spider-Man films will feature other characters from the universe.

He explained that Spider-Man “is in the universe now, and the fun of the universe is that the characters can go back and forth.”

Sony has registered more than a dozen domain names connected to the Spider-Man IP, suggesting they were debating over a number of different titles.

Spider-Man: Coming of Age, Spider-Man: Greatness Awaits, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Suspended were all registered, and could now serve as titles for future films.
