‘Spider-Man’ Movie Gets Official Title

The friendly neighborhood Spider-Man’s next adventure has an official title.

Spider-Man: Homecoming” will swing into theaters next summer, Sony Pictures announced at CinemaCon, the annual exhibition trade show taking place this week in Las Vegas. To make the big reveal, the studio flew in Tom Holland, the English actor who is slipping into the wall-crawler’s spandex, fresh from the Hollywood red carpet of “Captain America: Civil War.”

“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.

“I hope it takes about three movies,” quipped Sony Pictures chief Tom Rothman.

“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.

The film is a partnership between Sony and Disney’s Marvel Studios, with Kevin Feige, the creative force between the comic book company’s big screen blockbusters, serving as a producer. As part of the deal, Holland’s Spider-Man will show up in future Avengers movies.

The alliance led to one unorthodox moment. Sony closed out its presentation to theater owners by showing a scene of Holland talking to Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man in “Captain America: Civil War.” Normally that would seem like a great way to gin up excitement for a new Spidey film, save for one small fact. That film isn’t made by Sony. It’s a Disney extravaganza.
