***Possible SPOILERS below for the 2017 Spider-Man movie reboot.***
A recent domain name purchase by Sony appears to have given away the title of the upcoming Spider-Man movie coming from Marvel.
The film company has registered SpiderManHomecomingTheMovie.com, leading to speculation that the next film will be called Spider-Man: Homecoming or something similar. (If you go to the domain now, you’ll be redirected to Sony’s movie website.)
The domain registration, first reported by the BBC, is the same way the name for the latest James Bond movie was discovered to be Skyfall before it was announced.
According to /Film, the name, Spider-Man: Homecoming, could be a reference to “Amazing Spider-Man #252. Published in 1984, that comic book storyline features the black suit that will become known as Venom, as well as appearances from Avengers like Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor. If the new Spider-Man movie is indeed based on that arc, it could explain rumors that Captain America and Iron Man will be swinging by Spidey’s solo movie.”
The next Spider-Man movie, starring Tom Holland as the titular webslinger, is set to hit theaters on July 7, 2017.
But first, Spider-Man will make an appearance in Captain America: Civil War which is in theaters on May 6, 2016.SuperFable
