Marvel and Sony have worked hard to keep their Spider-Man reboot plans under wraps, refusing to even reveal the webslinger’s new costume until the very last moments of the latest Captain America: Civil War trailer. Still, keeping secrets from a hungry fandom is no easy feat in this day and age, and some internet sleuthing may have uncovered one key detail about the new film: its title.
The BBC reports that Sony has registered the domain named SpiderManHomecomingTheMovie.com, suggesting the name of the film could be Spider-Man: Homecoming or something similar. Keep in mind Sony and Marvel haven’t officially announced or confirmed anything about the Spider-Man title, so this could just turn out to be a red herring. Maybe it’s not what it looks like, or maybe it’s just one of several names they’re considering. On the other hand, this is exactly how the internet figured out that Bond 23 would be called Skyfall.
As for what that title means, “Homecoming” could refer to Amazing Spider-Man #252. Published in 1984, that comic book storyline features the black suit that will become known as Venom, as well as appearances from Avengers like Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor.
