UPDATE: Spider-Man himself, Tom Holland, has announced tonight at Sony’s official CinemaCon press conference that the title for the 2017 standalone film, will in fact be Spider-Man: Homecoming, which Sony Chairman Thomas Rothman has said refers to both the character’s high school setting and the fact that he will be returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Also, Holland says it refers to Peter trying to find his way home, which should give all of you fellow Spidey fans out there some serious chills.
Check out this shot from the conference below as well, which gives us our look at the movie’s official logo and it’s kinda awesome:

Set to make his debut in Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War next month, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker/Spider-Man will then be moving onto his own standalone movie in 2017, from Cop Car director Jon Watts and starring alongside the already cast Marisa Tomei as Aunt May and Zendaya. So far, word of mouth has been positive regarding Holland’s iteration of the beloved character as well, and from the sounds of it, he might just be the most faithful Spider-Man we’ve onscreen yet.
Not much is known about the 2017 solo film though at this point, and I don’t imagine much will be made known until at least some time after the release of Civil War, though it has been compared heavily to the films of directors like John Hughes in terms of its tone and story.
However, it looks like we may know what the title of the film is going to be, as Sony Pictures has just registered the web domain: www.spidermanhomecoming.com, which has led many to believe the film could be called Spider-Man: Homecoming, playing into both the character’s High School age in the film and the fact that well, he is coming home after all. Though we don’t know for sure if this could be the title of the live-action film next year, or the animated movie being made by Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
The title itself doesn’t really offer that much insight, and we don’t even know for sure if this actually is the film’s title or not. But if it is, I do kind of love it because I think it indicates towards the film having a much smaller and more personal scale than anything else, which I think is imperative because I’m getting really tired of superhero teams fighting to save the entire world.
Spider-Man is a personal, relatable character, so I think if Marvel and Sony are planning on keeping the film’s tone and story that way as well, then we could have a very solid, satisfying new Spider-Man story on our hands here. Fingers crossed.
The 2017 Spider-Man film is set to hit theatres on July 7th, 2017.
