On Wednesday, Sony announced the title for the next "Spider-Man" film, which stars Tom Holland.
"Spider-Man: No Way Home" is set for release this Christmas.
The official announcement followed the cast members trolling fans with fake titles on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, Sony released a new video with Holland (who plays the titular character, Peter Parker), Jacob Batalon (Ned Leeds), and Zendaya (MJ). The short video showed Holland wearing his character's "find the x" math t-shirt and leaving the office of director Jon Watts.
As Holland exited the room, he told Batalon and Zendaya that Watts gave him a fake name again for the movie, which was still untitled up until Wednesday.
Then, the camera turned to a dry erase board that contained the real title of the movie, "Spider-Man: No Way Home," written in the franchise's signature logo style.
Surrounding the official title for the third movie were other scrapped ideas, along with "Spider-Man" doodles.
Some of the suggested names appeared to be inspired by the pandemic, like "Work From Home" (accompanied by the phrase "PLEASE NooOoo") and "Zooming Home" (next to the words "Please. Stop.").
"Homemade" was rejected because it was deemed "too cutesy" and "Home Alone" was dismissed because another franchise of the same starring Macaulay Culkin already exists, which would lead to copyright issues.
The name also matches the previous standalone films' inclusion of the word "home."
"Spider-Man: Homecoming" (2017) centered on Peter juggling his secret superhero identity with high school woes (like attending the homecoming dance with his crush).
The sequel, titled "Spider-Man: Far From Home" (2019), centered on the main character traveling to Europe - a long way from his hometown of Queens, NY - for a school trip and befriending a new character named Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal).
News of the official title release followed the cast messing with fans on Tuesday by posting new stills from the upcoming movie and fake film titles on their social media accounts.
The confusion caused people to speculate about what the true title of the movie could be, which resulted in clever fan art and memes.
Based on the official title, fans are hoping that the movie will show Peter dealing with the multiverse - a concept that's been discussed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It has also been speculated that the film will bring back stars from previous Marvel movies, though Holland has denied reports that past "Spider-Man" actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will make appearances.
"Spider-Man: No Way Home" hits theaters this Christmas.
