Spider-Man finally made his real Marvel Cinematic Universe debut when the web-slinger swung in with Captain America and the rest of the Avengers in Civil War. After three semi-successful attempts by Tobey Maguire and two not-so-successful attempts by Andrew Garfield, Spidey’s mask will now be worn by Tom Holland, bringing high expectations from critics. With Holland as the wall-crawling hero, fans are now anticipating the announcement of the villains in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Early on, Michael Keaton was already confirmed to be one of the actors who will be playing one of the villains in the movie, although it is still unknown which one he will be playing. Theories swirled that it might be Carnage, Chameleon, Mysterio, Hobgoblin, and what many think is the most likely prospect, the Vulture. Recent reports from Movie Pilot suggest that this is most likely confirmed, as the Vulture has been named the main antagonist of the movie.
Confirmed to be joining the Vulture is the Tinkerer who will be played by Orange is the New Black’s Michael Chernus-known to be the repairman of equipment, gadgets and machinery for Marvel villains, including Mr. Adrian Tombs (aka the Vulture).
Two actors are also confirmed to be joining the Homecoming movie-Bokeem Woodbine of Fargo, and Logan Marshall-Green of Prometheus-but still have undisclosed roles. Some have theorized Woodbine may be playing the Shocker, while there is the possibility that Marshall-Green may be playing the Scorpion. But given the randomness of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and a long list of Spider-Man villains, the additional role of Spider-Man: Homecoming antagonist is still up for grabs.
With the Vulture confirmed to be one of the villains in Spider-Man: Homecoming, four members of the Sinister Six have already come out on the big screen (albeit in different universes and with different Spider-Men) and just maybe Spidey fans will soon see the friendly neighborhood hero go against the super villain supergroup.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will be… coming to theaters July 17, 2017.
