Sony/Marvel's 2017 Spidey Film Officially Titled "Spider-Man: Homecoming"

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" is official. Following speculation last week after Sony Pictures registered the spidermanhomecomingthemovie.com domain name, the studio made the title official Tuesday night at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, in news later confirmed by Marvel.com. Marvel has also released a look at the 2017 film's official logo:

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" will be the first solo Spidey film under the new joint agreement between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures, which will see Spider-Man appear in Marvel Cinematic Universe films for the first time. The movie will star Tom Holland in the title role, who will debut as the beloved Marvel hero in Marvel Studios' "Captain America: Civil War," out on May 6.

Clearly, "Homecoming" reflects the younger, high school-age Peter Parker played by Tom Holland -- but may also be a reference to the iconic character being under the Marvel umbrella, after years of being under Sony's sole live-action control.

Directed by Jon Watts and also starring Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" is scheduled for release on July 7, 2017.
