Sony Pictures Motion Picture Chairman Tom Rothman and the new Peter Parker, Tom Holland, announced the title of their forthcoming standalone Spider-Man project.

“Spider-Man: Homecoming,” costarring Zendaya Coleman and Marisa Tomei, will swing into theaters July 7, 2017.

“It’s obviously a high school reference and shows Peter Parker’s enduring conflict — saving the world and getting your homework done,” Rothman said on stage at Caesar’s Palace during the Sony presentation at CinemaCon.

Holland, who flew to Vegas private from the Los Angeles premiere of “Captain America: Civil War” courtesy of the studio, introduced a short scene from that movie linking him to Disney’s branch of the vast Marvel movie universe — one that features Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr.

Holland’s Parker comes home from school to discover that his Aunt May (Tomei) is on the sofa with Iron Man alter ego Tony Stark, appearing with a black eye and offering the high schooler a job.

There’s also an establishing shot of a huge metropolitan apartment building where Peter and May live. “Queens,” flashes on the screen in a huge, trendy font — naming their location in the New York borough and immediately reminding us of every episode of HBO’s “Girls” ever.

Holland endeared the group after a pep talk from Rothman, saying simply, “I’m Tom Holland and I’m your new Spider-Man.”
