Why I Love the Spider-Man: Homecoming Logo

As you may have already heard and seen today, the new solo Spider-Man film has an official title: Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman confirms the film has two meanings, that of Peter Parker’s high school age, but also Spidey coming home to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Whatever your thoughts on the title are (and I totally get the lackluster responses to it), it’s still astounding to me that Sony and Marvel were able to pull this off, and are moving forward so excitedly together.

The new title and film also received an official logo:


Honestly, I love it. Title aside, I love the design of this logo, with the swoop and the Spidey mask as the “o.”

I know the weariness over so many different Spider-Man iterations in so many years. Believe me, I get it, I’ve felt them too. Both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield had some great things going for them, and now we have another actor, Tom Holland, and it can get tiring.

From all the reviews I’ve read so far on Captain America: Civil War, Holland is great as Peter Parker and people are looking forward to his turn in the solo film. I don’t know about all of that yet, but I do know that I’m charmed by this logo.

It feels fun and whimsical, in ways that remind me of the character of Spider-Man. As Devin Faraci points out, it’s quite similar to the original comic logo:


So regardless of the title itself, of Holland’s performance in Civil War, I really like this new logo and I’m intrigued to see where it goes.

Spider-Man: Homecoming, directed by Jon Watts and starring Tom Holland and Marisa Tomei, is set to hit theaters on July 7, 2017.
