Is the Vulture the confirmed new movie villain? Read something about Michael Keaton being confirmed in the movie but not sure if it's truly finalized (shrug)

 

That's a really good question, as I am not sure it was clearly confirmed Michael Keaton was being encouraged to take on the Vulture. It was assumed based on his Birdman role.

 

DEADLINE: Michael Keaton Joins ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ After All – Is He The Vulture?

 

Michael Keaton, who in April was in early talks for a villainous role in the Sony-Marvel collaboration/reboot Spider-Man: Homecoming before falling out, is back in the mix again and we’ve been told his deal has closed. He apparently is set to play iconic Spider-Man villain The Vulture and joins newly minted Spider-Man Tom Holland along with Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr. who are also confirmed.

 

But now the story as of yesterday is he has definitely signed on, and that it is the Vulture.

It says "apparently" the Vulture is the new villain. We're still over a year out, chance it could still change?

I've also read that he might be playing Norman Osborn.

Any could happen if someone on the creative team comes up with a strong enough proposal.

I'm hoping it's the Chameleon and then his half-brother shows up in Spider-Man 2

Is Amazing Spider-Man 2 even trending? Is there a bigger yawn-fest than octogenarian Adrian Toomes as the first villain in the Marvel reboot? Not that it couldn't be entertaining, but...the Vulture?

Don't get me wrong, it could be good. But it just doesn't move the dial for me at all. Morbius or Kraven, hellz yeah. Vulture, meh.

Yes it's the Vulture. But good news is The Terrible Tinkerer will also be in it. :banana:

I'm hoping Vulture is a ruse. Or, maybe they go with this awesome version...

I'd like to see Norman Osborn introduced. Just no Green Goblin.

 

Could open up for Dark Avengers/Thunderbolts storyline down the way.

Vulture could work if they focus more on him as a psychological villain. Have him really with Peter's life, much like Green Goblin in the first movie.

The public has no idea about the Vulture. If it's done right it will work, but the idea of the Vulture does nothing by itself. The actor and -script have to make it happen.

So the Tinkerer will be building the Vulture's suit with material from the previous movie. Interested to see how the plot unfolds (thumbs u

Aerial battles between The Vulture and Spidey would look amazing on the big screen (and with well done CGI), just please make sure there's a plot. And try not to have 4 different villains in one movie, ok?

There are still lots of roles to fill...Keaton could be playing Captain Stacey, or even J. Jonah Jameson. He's definitely not Kraven, doesn't have the look or the physicality. He could be Vulture, but I sure hope not. :eek:
