Yesterday, Tom Holland revealed the title of the upcoming Spider-Man 3: Spider-Man: Phone Home.
No, Zendaya revealed the title: Spider-Man: Home Slice.
No, it was Jacob Batalon who revealed the title: Spider-Man: Home Wrecker.
All of these statements are true.
So excited to announce the new Spider-Man title. So proud of this one…FOS is back! pic.twitter.com/gJJtUr1OFp

The actors are in each other’s replies and comments, pretending to be shocked and surprised by the contradictory messaging, which is cute when you consider that Tom Holland has a history of spoiling—or nearly spoiling—Marvel’s secrets. Would he share something his colleagues weren’t yet in on? Absolutely. But that’s not the case here.
The answer is probably the answer for every Marvel mystery as Phase 4 builds: the multiverse. (Can we all agree to say “multiverse” like “multipass”? Please?) It’s been rumored that just about every star from the previous Spider-Man films is returning for this one, though Holland is now telling the press that there won’t be three Spider-Men in the film.
Even leaving aside Holland’s history of spoilers, Marvel loves to obfuscate and misdirect, and to have its actors fib about things that are absolutely true; remember how Tatiana Maslany denied for ages that she was She-Hulk? Nothing anybody says at this point can be trusted.
But that doesn’t mean there can’t be three titles. Or maybe none of these is the actual title! Though Spider-Man: Home Slice does have a nice ring to it.
UPDATE: The real title has (probably) been dropped! Here we go…
