'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Title Explained by Sony Chairman.
During last week's Ghostbusters premiere however, IGN caught up with Sony Chairman Tom Rothman. He didn't give away too much but he did explained the title.
"[The title] is relevant to the story because it takes place in a highschool and there is this scene.. at a homecoming dance" Rohtman said. "I've actually seen the dailies of it because we already did the high school shooting of it in the first couple of weeks and it's fantastic. But it's also a homecoming to Marvel. And a homecoming to the cinematic universe that Spider-Man belongs in. So it's a pretty unprecedented deal between two studios, but we're really proud of it. And all I can tell you is those guys at Marvel - I think the technical term is - they know their sh-t"
Fans have long expected that the title have this double meaning but now it is finally confirmed. Tom Holland as Spider-Man is the youngest ever to be cast in this role and perhaps the closest thing to classic Spider-Man. At 20 yrs old he is younger than Tobey McGuire or Andrew Garfield when they took the role.
"We love the all of the pre-existing movies, and everybody and all the incarnations" Rothman said "but this is it. This is the character in all his youthful complications and 'I have to save the world and get my chemistry homework done and which I'm going to do' "
Filming for Spider-Man: Homecoming have started recently in Atlanta. The film is set for July 7, 2017 release.
