We’ve known that Michael Keaton was cast in Spider-Man: Homecoming for awhile now, but it’s only recently been confirmed, via an interview with Marvel President Kevin Feige in the Toronto Sun, that the actor is indeed playing Vulture.
“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.”
Spider-Man: Homecoming is directed by Jon Watts and stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker, Zendaya as Mary Jane Watson, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Tony Revolori as Flash Thompson, and Donald Glover in an unknown role.
The film hits theaters on July 7, 2017.
