Marvel Studios has officially announced the title of their joint Spider-Man reboot film with Sony:  Spider-Man: Homecoming. Here is the title card released by Marvel:

The "Homecoming" subtitle has an obvious double meaning: one meaning the character coming "home" to be in Marvel's shared movie universe, but the second being a homecoming from school, as Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has said on several occasions that this takes place during Peter Parker's high school years. That - and the design of the title card itself - suggest a brighter, lighter tone, especially in contrast to the dark and angsty (no, not angry) Amazing Spider-Man 2.

It's although worth noting that for branding, Marvel's logo is the lone studio in the title card, despite Sony still overseeing and owning the film rights to the franchise.

Directed by Cop Car director Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland in the title role, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, and Zendaya as Michelle. Holland will debut as Spider-Man in May 6's Captain America: Civil War.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is scheduled for release on July 7, 2017.
