Spider-Man: Homecoming Will See Michael Keaton Come Back As Vulture And A Brand New Villain


Variety has reported this alongside mentioning that Jake Gyllenhaal is in discussions to feature as a new villain called Mysterio in that movie.

Keaton first played Vulture in last year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. MCU’s Vulture is a blue collar worker owning a salvage company which cleaned up after the superhero battles. Tony Stark took charge of the salvage operation, which left Toomes and his employees in the lurch. Later Toomes created the Vulture suit and started peddling the alien technology he had got his hands on, to criminals.

This is not similar to the role played by Toomes in the Marvel Comics universe, and the MCU version of Vulture is also the Liz Allen’s father who happens to be the crush of a teenaged Peter Parker. Peter’s hobnobbing with Liz led to Toomes discovering the fact that his daughter was a classmate of the Spider-Man. However, despite being jailed, Toomes has promised that he won’t reveal Peter’s secret to repaying the debt he owed to Spider-Man for saving Liz’s life.

Keaton’s comeback as the Vulture might not be pleasant for the web-slinger. We also don’t know whether or what relationship will Vulture have with Mysterio? Is Toomes really going to keep Peter’s identity a secret?
