While its not the most popular title among fans, Spider-Man: Homecoming will be the introduction for a brand new franchise for the character. It was officially announced that Homecoming will be the subtitle of next year’s Spider-Man reboot. There are several ways this title can be taken. First, it can signal the arrival of Marvel’s most popular character under its very own roof (Marvel Studios). Second, it can reference the film’s setting, which will focus on the high school years of Peter Parker (Tom Holland). Either way, that subtitle isn’t sitting well with me.
I mean this is suppose to be Marvel Phase 3, where Infinity War sees Thanos bringing hell to the universe. A title like Homecoming seems too kiddish. Regardless, its the title we have, and hasn’t Marvel earned out trust through 12 or 13 films?
Spider-Man: Homecoming wasn’t the only news that broke, as the film’s villain has reportedly been revealed. Birth.Movies.Death is hearing that The Vulture will be a villain in the film. No details on whether the character will be a main or side villain is known, and just that he’ll be in the movie.
Brief history of The Vulture:
Adrian Toomes was an electronics engineer who created a flight harness that gave him superhuman strength and the ability to fly. The character was set to appear in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 4, however those plans fell through over creative differences. This goes to show the character has potential for the big screen.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is set to being shooting sometime this year. Once we see the character make his debut in Captain America: Civil War, is when we’ll have a better idea of what we’re in store for.
