This is Why I Have No Idea What's Going On

Why can't this just be a movie about a kid from England who gets to be Spider Man?

When the untitled Avengers 4 rolls around in May of 2019, it will serve as a giant capstone to everything Marvel Studios have built in Phase Three - but they're wasting no time at all moving into Phase Four. The sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming is scheduled to arrive in theaters just two months after the team-up movie, and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige recently explained why that's happening:

The Infinity War movie and untitled Avengers are, yes, just by their nature, very big and are going to have a lot of universe-shattering events happen. How to process that, how to fathom that, how to come back to earth after that... of course you want Peter Parker to lead you through that.

In promotion of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Kevin Feige sat down with Fandango in the last few weeks to chat about the hero's future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and executive/producer explained the strategy behind releasing Spider-Man 2 as the immediate follow-up to Avengers 4. It's been previously confirmed that the spidey sequel would pick up mere minutes after the end of the Joe and Anthony Russo-directed comic book movie, but now we know that it's because Marvel plans to help bring fans back to Earth (potentially literally) with a more grounded, small-scale story.

What's funny about this is that situation almost makes it seem like the franchise jumped the gun a bit with the title of Spider-Man: Homecoming. The title certainly makes a fair amount of sense both because A) the film features a homecoming dance, and B) because it's Spider-Man's "homecoming" to the Marvel Cinematic Universe - but given the set up for the sequel, it would have been a very appropriate for Spider-Man 2 to get that particular subtitle:

I've read all of that three times. What the hell is going on?
