We only just learned at CinemaCon that the movie would be called Spider-Man: Homecoming. And although we know a few of the actors who’ll star — Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya — we haven’t much clue about what their characters are actually doing in the movie.
So until we do, the rumor mill is here to churn out speculation about the stuff we don’t know. The latest salt-worthy report claims that the Vulture is going to be in Spider-Man: Homecoming, although not necessarily as the big bad. Read More »

The Spider-Man: Homecoming title confirmation and logo isn’t the only Spider-Man news to come out of Sony’s CinemaCon 2016 presentation. Sony Pictures Animation president Kristine Belson talked briefly about the upcoming animated Spider-Man movie, which is due in 2018. While no big information was revealed, Belson did make some big claims about the upcoming animated superhero film from producers/screenwriters Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Find out what she said, after the jump.

Last summer, it was announced Tom Holland had secured the role of Spider-Man. At the time, we already knew the character would appear in Captain America: Civil War, a role that was highlighted in the last trailer for the film. While it would’ve been more fun to experience the character on the big screen for the first time, it was an understandable decision on Marvel and Disney’s part to promote Spidey’s involvement.
Fans of Spider-Man will most likely be pleased with his role in Civil War, which shows the character at his youngest and nerdiest. Below, Marvel’s Kevin Feige discusses the new Spider-Man, the experience of casting Tom Holland, and collaborating with Sony.

UPDATE: At CinemaCon, Tom Holland confirmed that the title of the upcoming Spider-Man solo movie would be Spider-Man: Homecoming, adding that “it really is a homecoming” for the character. Sony’s Tom Rothman said the title was “obviously” a high school reference, so it seems to fit with the John Hughes vibe we’ve heard about before. Holland says that throughout the story Peter Parker is really trying to find where he belongs. Check out the logo below:

The Marvel Cinematic Universe understands the inherent joys of a connected superhero world – various characters from all corners of the world can brush shoulders, team up, and occasionally battle it out. You pick up an issue of The Amazing Spider-Man and you get a scene where Peter Parker stops by Hank Pym’s lab for assistance. You read a Daredevil story and Black Widow shows up to help out. This isn’t exclusive to Marvel, but the company invented the modern concept of a shared universe back in the ’60s. It’s kind of their thing.
The film version of the shared Marvel universe has proven incredibly rewarding. Bruce Banner can pop up in Iron Man 3, Falcon can show up in Ant-Man, and so on. Did anyone think that the new Spider-Man movie would not take advantage of this? If there were any doubts, they were just put to rest: other Marvel characters will play a role in the next Spidey adventure.
