With filming for Spider-Man 3 well underway in Atlanta, Georgia, fans have been eagerly awaiting a first glimpse of the Tom Holland Spider-Man threequel. The film has been described by Holland as the “most ambitious standalone superhero movie ever“. Judging by the confirmed and leaked casting updates over the past few months, that statement could prove to be true.
In addition to the returning Tom Holland, Zendaya and Jacob Batalon, it has also been confirmed that Jamie Foxx’s Electro, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, and Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus will all appear in the movie. Rumours have also linked Willem Dafoe and Charlie Cox with the film, as well as Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
Since Spider-Man 3 was announced, fans have been eager to learn what the film’s actual title will be. Last year, Sony Pictures Amy Pascal confirmed that the film would continue the theme of including the word “home” in the title.
A short while ago, Tom Holland took to Instagram to share an image and announce the film’s full title. The second image in the post revealed the title of Spider-Man 3 as Spider-Man: Phone Home.
Shortly afterwards, fellow Spider-Man star Jacob Batalon shared a post on his Instagram account which revealed another new photo from the movie. His post also stated how “excited” he was to share the film’s full title, however, the second image revealed the title as Spider-Man: Home-Wrecker.
This was also followed up by Zendaya on her Instagram account, who posted yet another image from the movie and excitedly revealed a third version of the title as Spider-Man: Home Slice.
Whilst it’s almost certain that neither of these titles are actually correct, it’s highly unlikely that the three stars decided to post the images off their own backs. It’s more likely that this is a marketing ploy by Sony and Marvel Studios to generate some hype for the film — possibly ahead of a proper title reveal in the near future.
With the film reportedly set to take a leap into the multiverse, it’s possible that each of these three titles could, however, hint towards some plot points for their characters within the film.
The still as yet untitled Spider-Man 3 is currently scheduled to release on December 17th, 2021.
