It’s official, Sony Pictures used their CinemaCon presentation today to announced that “Spider-Man: Homecoming” will be the title of the upcoming Marvel-approved reboot of the property starring Tom Holland. Photos of the title treatment being used are already online and can be seen right.
Of course one big question about the film is how much involvement Marvel will have in the film which is being made under the Sony Pictures banner. Over the weekend Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige told Collider that the film is “very much a Sony Pictures” film even as Marvel is handling the creative decisions:
“We’re working very much [together]. It is a – I don’t know exactly what the credits will be, but it is a Sony Pictures production of a Marvel Studios film. The agreement was that it is very much a Sony Pictures movie.
Amy Pascal is co-producing it with us and [Sony Chairman] Tom Rothman is leading the charge for Sony and that we are the creative producers. We are the ones hiring the actor, introducing him in this film, and then working right now on the script and soon to be shooting the actual Spidey film.”
The film won’t revisit the origin story, but it doesn’t mean they’ll be completely brushed aside either:
“There are events that made Peter who he was, and we’ll certainly allude to those events, but we’re much more focused on his future and how he continues to grow and have a steep learning curve after, certainly, the adventure he had in Civil War on how to be his own hero.”
Holland, Marisa Tomei and Zendaya star in the film which opens July 7th 2017.
