What's in a name? Quite a bit actually. Just ask whoever came up with the idea behind Santa With Muscles. Compellingly awful, right? On the other end of the spectrum, Tom Holland revealed the official name of next year's Spider-Man solo film and it's actually pretty damn promising:
"I'm Tom Holland and I'm your new Spider-Man," Holland announced at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Tuesday night, according to Variety. Holland, who was apparently the last person in the world to know he had landed the obviously huge part, then revealed the title: Spider Man: Homecoming.
According to Holland and Sony boss Tom Rothman, the Homecoming title does indeed have a slight high school vibe to it. However, Holland noted, it's also a bit more existential than that interpretation would imply: "Peter [Parker] is trying to find his way home." Adding that the film would see Peter searching actively for "his identity," Rothman joked that he was hoping that search would last for "about three movies."
As previously reported, Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Marisa Tomei as Aunt May and Zendaya as Michelle. Tom Holland, of course, is our new Spider-Man (and #Donald4SpiderMan rightfully rages on). Jon Watts, who received critical praise for the Kevin Bacon-starring Cop Car last year, will direct. Will all of this add up to a necessary addition to the Spider-Man legacy? Find out July 7, 2017.
