The Working Title For Marvel & Sony’s ‘Spider-Man’ Reboot Is A Seinfeld Reference

Working Title Spider-ManAs casting is underway and production is getting ready to gear up on Marvel & Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man reboot, we’ve learned the working title which is something that is sure to please some Seinfeld fans. According to Production Weekly, the film’s working title is “Summer Of George”. This title is a reference to the sitcom’s eight season finale. The episode featured George Costanza receiving a severance package from his employers which allows him to do whatever he wants for the summer. And of course, he does nothing at all. Costanza! Wonder if he’ll proclaim this the summer of Parker? Will this title actually have anything to do with the film’s plot? Nope. But it’s a cool little fun thing to know. The currently untitled Jon Watts direct Spider-Man film hits theaters July 7, 2017.

    I certainly hope it doesn’t say anything about the movie itself, but the working title doesn’t instill confidence. It’s a fun reference, but they have a ton of work to do to create a quality Spider-Man franchise with a massive amount on the line.

      Why should it instill confidence in you? It’s a fake working title, it doesn’t mean anything and it isn’t supposed to. It could be called “Chicken Noodle Soup” and wouldn’t make a bit of difference.

        NO SOUP FOR YOU!

    Most big movies film under different names initially to throw people off that are near where filming will take place. So production notices that go out locally call the film something else, to not attract attention. Happens all the time. Nothing to see here

    Jason Alexander will play J Jonah Jameson, and the movie will be about Peter Parkers summer internship at the Daily Bugle.

    They’re real and they’re… SPECTACULAR.

    I’d bet that’s why the Seinfeld reference.
