Sony just registered a web domain that suggests the title of the new Spiderman movie will be Spiderman Homecoming.
So here’s what we know about Marvel’s take on Spiderman. We know he’s played by Tom Holland and he’ll make his first appearance in Captain America: Civil War, part of which we’ve seen in the latest Civil War trailer. We also know that Holland will make his first solo outing in a 2017 Spiderman feature to be directed by Tom Watt. In reality we don’t know anything about the first Marvel Spiderman film, but now some new information may have come to light. And as always, the information came out by accident.
The news from Slashfilm is that Sony may have dropped the ball by registering a new domain name for the movie they’re sharing with Marvel. The domain SpiderManHomecomingTheMovie.com has caught the attention of a number of people living on the internet – for obvious reasons. Now the prevailing theory is that the new Spiderman film will be called Spiderman Homecoming, or something similar, this is a lot like the situation that led to people finding out what Skyfall – another Sony property – was going to be called.
There’ a lot of hypothesis going on with this title. A lot of people are claiming that the movie will be based on the comic series Spiderman Homecoming. For anyone who hasn’t read it, Spiderman Homecoming is all about Spidey returning to New York after the Secret Wars with his famous symbiote suit. However, given that Sony already has plans to do a solo Venom movie it, it’s unlikely we’ll be seeing Holland whip out a symbiote any time soon. The film could still follow Homecoming though. In the Civil War comic arc that the new Captain Maerica film is based on, Tony Stark/ Iron Man builds a brand new suit for Spiderman. There’s already speculation that this could be the same costume we’ve seen Holland wearing in the latest Civil War trailer. So Peter Parker could still return to New York in a badass new outfit.
The Homecoming storyline also has a lot of other big Marvel names in it, including Iron Man, Captain America and Hawkeye. Could we be seeing more crossovers similar to Civil War in the future? Who knows. What we do know is that we maybe kind of probably but almost certainly don’t know the name of the upcoming Spiderman film.
Spiderman will swing into theatres July 7th, 2017. Watch this space for all the latest Spiderman movie news.
