Thoughts on Spider-Man: Homecoming

Okay, it’s official!  The Jon Watts directed Spider-Man film is titled Spider-Man: Homecoming!

Last week, I wrote about potential titles for the new Spider-Man movie and Spider-Man: Homecoming was one of the names (that name was a rumor floating around the same day).

First of all, this picture looks fun!  It looks very 1960s and colorful, which is perfect for a Spider-Man depiction in which Peter Parker is a 16 year old teenager (just like he was in the old comics – I can’t wait to see Tom Holland’s portrayal of him which we will get to see when Captain America: Civil War comes out in May).

The problem comes with the title itself (it’s not really a problem, but I can go either way with this one).  Marvel Entertainment’s adaptation of Spider-Man is supposed to be lighthearted and Homecoming is a perfect title for this.  Homecoming is an integral part of most high schools and since Peter Parker will be going to high school in this movie, I am guessing we’ll actually see Parker go to either homecoming or prom.  Also, the title signifies Spider-Man’s arrival to Marvel Entertainment (his true home), which will please fans who endured Sony’s 2012 reboot and 2014 sequel.  However, I just couldn’t imagine myself saying, “Hey everyone, let’s go see Spider-Man: Homecoming!”  Maybe it’s just me, but I just don’t think that the title is as significant as it needs to be.  Once again, I have no problem with the people involved with the film and I honestly think it’s just me, but this title just seems awkward.

So what do you think about Spider-Man: Homecoming?  Are you happy about this title?  Feel free to let us know what you think in the comments section!  Thanks!
