That’s the official title of the Marvel produced Sony Spider-Man reboot featuring the MCU Spider-Man, Tom Holland.
Originally, Ashley brought this to our attention on the Facebook Crawlspace Admin page – but we kinda poo-poo’d it, thinking it didn’t pass the smell test and seemed like clickbait. But sure enough, she was right. Or rather the article she linked was right. Then early this morning our reviewer Mohammed/Animehunter posted it on the Crawlspace Reviewers’ Page, linking to an article at WhateverASpiderCan.com by the great Mike McNulty (aka Spectacular Mike, aka Stillanerd, aka Tommy Hot-Pants Jr., aka Jack La Ventura), formerly a reviewer for this site and he who mankind calls ‘Spectacular Mike’ on the podcast each month. From Spectacular Mike:
As reported by The Wrap and Variety, Sony Pictures Chairman, Tom Rothman, and actor Tom Holland, who will play Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War and in the reboot, officially unveiled the title during this year’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas. As for why they chose Spider-Man: Homecoming, Rothman explained it as thus: “It’s obviously a high school reference and shows Peter Parker’s enduring conflict — saving the world and getting your homework done.”
Mike has more info over at WhateverASpiderCan.com, including possible details about the new villain. *cough*Vulture*cough*
So thanks to Mike, Ashley, Mohammed, The Wrap, Variety and a lot of other websites.
