Find out why Michael Keaton will no longer be a part of Spider-Man: Homecoming on the flip…
It was a cool idea to have the original Batman, Michael Keaton who was is in early talks to join Spider-Man: Homecoming in an unspecified villain role. But now that he has turned down the role, Deadline reports:
Sony Pictures’ reboot of Spider-Man will include Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., as it ramps up ahead of production ahead of a July 2017 release date. It appears the search continues to fill the role.
However, Tom Holland plays the webslinger himself in a major supporting role in Captain America: Civil War before headlining Homecoming with Marisa Tomei, who also appears in Civil War playing Aunt May, and Zendaya appearing in a yet-to-be-revealed role. Keaton’s possible Spidey villain for now is being kept secret, but rumors coming out of CinemaCon this week, first noted by Birth Movies Death, have it that the studios are considering classic Spider-Man villain The Vulture, either as the main villain or as part of a Bond-style opening sequence.
The Vulture previously was a possibility for Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, with John Malkovich in talks. John Watts is directing Spider-Man: Homecoming, with John Francis Daley & Jonathan M. Goldstein writing.
Well there is one win, and that is Iron Man has joined Spidey in his fight against the villain Vulture, who ever that may be?
Who do you think will be a great Vulture? Let us know what you think about the third version of Spider-Man with Tom Holland playing the teen superhero?
