So there’s a little thing called CinemaCon happening in Las Vegas this week, which is a chance for studios to show off their upcoming film slates to theatre owners. There have been a handful of announcements made and trailers revealed, although much of it is stuff that the general public will not get to see anytime soon. One thing that we do know, however, is that the new Spider-Man movie now has an official title. During the Sony Pictures presentation yesterday, Tom Holland appeared on stage to introduce the film as Spider-Man: Homecoming, confirming previous rumours about the title. He also unveiled the movie’s official logo:

The title could be a reference to the famous 1984 storyline of the same name, but it also apparently refers to the fact that “throughout the movie, Peter is trying to find out who he is and where he belongs in this world.” Previously, Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige hinted that various characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe might make an appearance in the Spider-Man solo film as well. Spider-Man Homecoming will be directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car) and it will be a co-production between Marvel and Sony. The movie hits theatres on July 7th, 2017; can you still muster up some excitement for yet another new Spider-Man movie?
