Is your Spidey-sense tingling, Marvel fans? Because Sony Pictures just announced the title of next summer’s Spider-Man reboot: Spider-Man: Homecoming!
The formal announcement was made at CinemaCon in Las Vegas yesterday, as the studio flew in their latest web-slinger, Tom Holland, for the big reveal.
“I’m Tom Holland and I’m your new Spider-Man,” the actor said at the annual exhibition trade show.
The big screen’s newest Peter Parker didn’t scale any large buildings or sling any web from his hands, but he did provide the audience in attendance with a bit of information surrounding the blockbuster film. As reported by Variety, Holland promised that the new movie would find the superhero and his alter ego Peter Parker searching for his identity. What’s more, footage from the movie was shown during the panel — and it reportedly revealed a very surprising cameo: Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), aka Iron Man himself, will make an appearance in the reboot.
Also starring Marisa Tomei as Aunt May and Zendaya as a character named Michelle, Homecoming will center on young Peter Parker’s attempts to balance his high school life with his extra-curricular superhero activities. Sony Pictures Chairman Tom Rothman described it as “saving the world and getting your algebra homework done at the same time.”
Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will make his debut in the hotly anticipated Captain America: Civil War, which arrives in theaters next month. You can watch Spidey’s rather acrimonious big screen introduction to Chris Evans’ Captain America right here.
