Las Vegas: The upcoming Spider-Man standalone film, starring Tom Holland in the role of the super hero, will be titled Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Sony Pictures announced the film's title at CinemaCon here.
“I’m Tom Holland and I’m your new Spider-Man,” said Holland, who promised that the new film would find the superhero and his alter ego Peter Parker searching for his identity, reports variety.com.
“I hope it takes about three movies,” added Sony Pictures chief Tom Rothman.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will focus on Parker’s struggles to balance his high school life with his vigilantism. Rothman described it as the conflict between “saving the world and getting your algebra homework done at the same time.”
Sony also unveiled the film’s new logo. It features a jaunty font, with the second “o” in homecoming replaced with an image of Spider-Man’s mask.
Before starring in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Holland will first be seen as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War.
Homecoming also features actresses Zendaya Coleman and Marisa Tomei, and is expected to be in theatres by July 2017.
Reports state that the film will begin with a scene where Peter returns home from high school, only to find his Aunt May chatting with Tony Stark aka Iron Marn, who wants to offer the teen a job. The role of Aunt May is being played by Marisa Tomei. However, there seems to be some confusion over whether this is actually part of the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie.
Tom Rothman also said that the film will encapsulate the chief conflicts in Peter's life — "saving the world and getting his homework done"!
Well, his famed Spidey sense is not going to help him with the latter!
