The relatively new working relationship between Sony and Marvel has appeared to start without any major problems. The third big screen Spider-Man debuted in Captain America: Civil War earlier this year and only further increased interest in seeing more of the character. Thankfully, Spider-Man: Homecoming is less than a year away from now, giving Tom Holland a chance to show what he can do as the lead of this franchise.
Early reports for the villain of the film named Michael Keaton as the top choice, and he eventually nabbed the role after initially falling out of talks. His confirmation has now come with any official word regarding his character.
Kevin Feige recently confirmed in an interview with Toronto Sun that Keaton is in fact playing Vulture in Homecoming. This is the first time that anyone directly involved with the film has confirmed the role, despite the fact that it had been heavily speculated, assumed, and reported.
We’ve had a wish list and most of them in the near-term are coming together. Cate Blanchett is playing Hela in Thor: Ragnarok. Michael Keaton’s Vulture in Spider-Man is something. And of course, finally, we’re showcasing Josh Brolin’s Thanos (in Avengers: Infinity War). We’re looking forward to that very much.
