Rumor: Is This The Title Of The New Spider-Man Movie?

In the comics, he's been "Amazing," "Spectacular," "Ultimate" and more. Now, rumor has it for his next big screen incarnation, Spider-Man will be an Avenger.

A new rumor from former Latino Review scooper El Mayimbe says Sony and Marvel are currently toying with Spider-Man: The New Avenger as the title for the July 28, 2017 film, likely to be directed by Drew Goddard. The title – if true – makes a lot of sense. It echoes Marvel's Captain America series, which started with "The First Avenger," strongly positions the film as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to audiences, and differentiates itself from the Sam Raimi and Marc Webb movies.

The title rumor came from El Mayimbe's Instagram. Here's the post:

As stated, this is an unconfirmed rumor, but lots of the times, the people who passed Gonzalez these rumors are legit. Still, take it with a grain of salt.

Either way, I think the biggest clue of a nugget of truth here is the lack of adjective. Spider-Man has almost always been "Amazing" or "Spectacular" in popular culture. For a normal person, it's gotta be difficult to keep track. It's especially difficult to keep track when there will have been three separate actors playing Spider-Man on the big screen in the past ten years.

However, if you call the movie Spider-Man: The New Avenger, the subtitle gives it a very different sound and everyone will know that Spider-Man isn't on his own anymore. He's get Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and the crew on his side. And that's exactly what Sony wants people to quickly and simply realize. Spider-Man is now part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
