When Spider-Man: Homecoming was filming last year, its working title was “Summer Of George.” The title is a nod to the eighth season finale of Seinfeld. Now the question is was that Seinfeld reference intentional? Co-producer Eric Caroll gave some insight recently to the name choice.
“We pick code names that make us giggle. Around that time in L.A., there was the channel that showed the Seinfeld reruns from 10 to 11 pm, and we all started coming in the next day and talking about Seinfeld. And when we had to pick a code name for this, ‘Summer of George’ was one [suggestion] that made us all laugh the hardest. Our email addresses are Episode 1456.com, which is, that’s the reason.”
Additionally, they considered having a member of the Seinfeld cast make a cameo in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
“For a while, we were going to try and throw a cameo in there, too but [something] just snuck up on us.”
