The title for the upcoming Spider-Man has reportedly been revealed, and Marvel Studios and Sony allegedly want to entitle it Spider-Man: The New Avenger.
Latino Review’s Umberto Gonzalez, who regularly posts movie and superhero rumors to his Instagram account, is the man responsible for the speculation, which he insists is still just a rumor and hasn’t been confirmed.
Gonzalez wrote, “Take with the tiniest grain of salt pending further confirmation. I’m being told the working title for the untitled Spider-Man stand alone film is Spider-Man: The New Avengers. Again, it’s Sunday, so take with grain pending further confirmation.”
If this rumor does prove to be true, then the title would be very similar to the the first Captain America film, which was entitled Captain America: The First Avenger.
However, as Gonzalez noted, this is still pure speculation at the moment. It comes just a few days after it was alleged that the first appearance of Spider-Man was in the post-credits sequence of Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
Age Of Ultron was released across Europe last week, where it has already grossed over $200 million, and a fake post-credits scene appeared to show Spider-Man making his debut. However, it has since been revealed that this entire sequence was created by a batch of pranking film-makers.
It’s widely believed that Spider-Man will make his debut in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe in next summer’s Captain America: Civil War, which is set to be based on a comic-book series that prominently featured Peter Parker and his superhero alter-ego. It was also star Chris Evans’ Captain America and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, both of whom are due to go up against each other because of the repercussions of Age Of Ultron.
Meanwhile, the Wrap recently reported that the list of actors who might portray the web-slinger has been whittled down to five names. These are believed to be Asa Butterfield, Nat Wolff, Tom Holland, Liam James, and Timothee Chalamet.
Avengers: Age Of Ultron will finally be released in the United States of America this coming Friday, and early predictions are that it could become one of the highest grossing movies of all time. Marvel Studios are confident that it should beat The Avengers‘ 2012 total of $1.508 billion, which is the third biggest gross in the history of celluloid. Only Titanic’s $2.1 billion and Avatar’s $2.7 billion has surpassed The Avengers‘ amount.
