The upcoming reboot of Spider-Man has been titled Spider-Man Homecoming. Sony unveiled the title at the ongoing CinemaCon, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The studio also brought Tom Holland, who will star as the young Peter Parker, as the surprise guest to the jamboree. The 19-year-old actor was flown to Las Vegas straight from the premiere of Captain America: Civil Warin Hollywood.

A new slice of footage shown on stage featured the teenage Parker literally coming home to find his Aunt May — played by Marisa Tomei — speaking with Tony Stark, a combination possible since Sony and Marvel made a deal to allow Spidey into the comic company’s current cinematic universe. Spider-Man also plays a prominent role in Civil War.
