Despite the previously announced animated Spider-Man film from Sony, the new live-action film from the Sony/Marvel deal is still very much in development. Kevin Feige et al. have been testing young actors left and right for the role of a high school-aged Peter Parker. And now it looks like the latest addition to the studio’s already-packed slate of Phase Three films has a new title.

RT! #UNCONFIRMED #RUMOR 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 AVENGER Again, it's Sunday so take with grain pending further confirmation. What do you think of title? #Spiderman #marvel #MCU #marvelcomics #marvelmovies
Yes, it’s a Sunday, and yes, this is an unconfirmed report. Considering Gonzalez’s track record, however, this just might be the real deal.
So what do you think about Spider-Man: The New Avenger? On the one hand, it follows the studio’s penchant for subtitles initially established with Captain America: The First Avenger and continued with it and Thor‘s Phase Two sequels. (The Iron Man films ignored this, but whatever.)
I was really hoping Marvel would go for Spectacular Spider-Man or another comic book-derived title. Sure, it’s a bit close to Sony’s use of “Amazing” with the last two films, but the subtitle shtick is becoming tiresome.
