Five Potential Titles for the ‘Spider-Man’ Reboot

After many long years, the much beloved Spider-Man character will finally join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a deal that was announced in 2015 between Sony and Marvel Studios. Spider-Man will first show up in this summer’s Captain America: Civil War. The next time we catch up Spidey will be in his latest reboot and one thing we still don’t know is what this film could be called, with the assumption that it won’t be either Spider-Man nor The Amazing Spider-Man as not to be confused with the previous movies. Let’s take a look at some potential titles for the reboot.

Spectacular Spider-Man

Spectacular Spider-Man

To date, there has been over 700 issues that fell under the The Amazing Spider-Man banner, and it was no surprise when Sony rebooted the movie franchise in 2012 they went with this to differentiate it from Sam Raimi’s series. With another reboot coming our way, the smart money could be on The Spectacular Spider-Man which is the second longest running Spider-Man comic title. This was also the name of a short-lived animated TV series that aired between 2008-2009.

Peter Parker Spider-Man

Peter Parker, Spider-Man

Another former comic title, Peter Parker, Spider-Man. Mostly known for its part in the Clone Saga throughout the 90s, Peter Parker, Spider-Man was the banner for over 150 issues of Spider-Man comics. One of the criticisms of the previous movies was that neither tapped into the true essence of Peter Parker and Spider-Man as two different personalities. This may set the tone that the film is about portraying the true Peter Parker as well as Spider-Man.

Spider-Man: Brand New Day

Spider-Man: Brand New Day

Brand New Day served as the title of a relatively unpopular storyline that witnessed Peter’s life with Mary Jane erased from history. This film will probably not be an adaptation of that storyline but this would serve as a great title for this movie. A new take on Spider-Man and a new day for the MCU with a brand new type of hero.

Spider-Man Kraven's Last Hunt

Spider-Man: Kraven’s Last Hunt

The title of one of Spider-Man’s most famous story arcs, although I’m rooting for Kraven to appear this is not a direct suggestion, but more an idea that the subtitle may directly reference the antagonist. This is a possible option as we’ve seen it done already in the MCU with Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Spider-Man The New Avenger

Spider-Man: The New Avenger

Spider-Man traditionally refused to join any Avengers team in the comics until Brian Michael Bendis’ New Avengers series in 2004. Marvel will probably not echo his reluctance in the MCU, but they may choose to nod to his first official appearance with the reboot. This title would also reflect the first appearance of Cap in The First Avenger.

Chris Hartmann

One day, the mild-mannered Chris Hartmann was caught up in a freak lab experiment during a storm and was struck by a bolt of lightning, but it wasn't until he was forced to make a deal with the devil and was abducted by aliens that he turned into a Monkeys Fighting Robots writer.
