And it’s pretty much means exactly what everyone has been thinking since the title was announced.
IGN caught up with Rothman at the premiere of Ghostbusters last night, where he went into the meaning of the title, as well as why he thinks Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man.
Here’s the thing I can tell you: We’re really, really fortunate on this because Marvel and Kevin Feige have really embraced the character and no one knows him as well as Marvel. It is another crown jewel of Sony’s for sure. But Homecoming, the name, is a double entendre on purpose, right?
It’s relevant to the story because it takes place in high school and there is a scene — that I guess I can give a little thing — at a homecoming dance. I’ve actually seen the dailies of it because we already did the high school shooting of it in the first couple 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.
We love all of the pre-existing movies and everybody and all the incarnations, but this is it. This is that character in all his youthful complications and ‘I have to save the world and get my chemistry homework done, and which am I going to do.’ I truly can’t wait ’til next summer.
Like I said, the reasoning for the title isn’t surprising, but it makes sense and is now confirmed. Even though I thought they already talked about why it was called Spider-Man: Homecoming at Cinema-Con or some other big event.
Do you like the reasoning for why the movie is called Spider-Man: Homecoming? It’s fitting for obviously the plot and Spider-Man coming back to Marvel, but as well what it seems like they want to do with this movie. Also is Tom Holland your favorite Spider-Man, why or why not?
