Micheal Keaton is Said to Be Reprising His Role of Vulture in SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Sequel


Earlier today we learned that Jake Gyllenhaal was in talks to take on the role of Mysterio in director Jon WattsSpider-Man: Homecoming sequel. Now, thanks to Variety, we know that Michael Keaton will be back in the role of The Vulture!

I wasn’t sure if we’d ever see the character again because it’s rare for a villain to show up more than once in the MCU. But I’m certainly happy to see that this villain will be back! He’s one of my favorites and in my opinion one of the best villains introduced in the MCU.

There’s no word on how big of a role he’ll play in the movie, but the Vulture and Mysterio do have a connection. In Spider-Man: Homecoming Vulture teamed up with Phineas Mason a.k.a. The Tinkerer to help him develop weapons. In the comic book, Mysterio teams up with the Tinkerer to help him develop gadgets to fight Spider-Man.

Maybe the two will find a way to team up against Spider-Man? There are no story details on the film, so all we can do is speculate about what the roles of these characters will be in the story.

Are you happy to hear that Keaton will be back as The Vulture, though?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler, Okja) seems finally poised to enter the superhero realm as the actor is reportedly in talks to portray the Marvel supervillain Mysterio in Marvel Studios’ forthcoming sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming.

There have also been rumors of Gyllenhaal replacing Ben Affleck in the DCEU for Matt Reeves’ The Batman, though this MCU casting leaves that in doubt.

FLASHPOINT Will Be Directed By SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein

Well, Warner Bros. has finally officially hired a couple of directors to take on the DC film Flashpoint. The screenwriting duo behind Spider-Man: Homecoming, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, have crossed over to DC Entertainment to take on the challenge, and that could be great!

The two previously directed Vacation and the upcoming film Game Night, which looks hilarious. I’ll admit, I was really hoping that Robert Zemeckis would do it, but obviously, things didn’t work out that way. I think Daley and Goldstein could end up doing a good job, though. We’ll just ahve to wait and see. After all, this will be their biggest directing project to date.

Here’s Why ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Is Nothing Like Those Other ‘Spider-Man’ Movies

July 7is a historic day in the world of superhero movies because it is the day Spider-Man: Homecoming arrives in theaters. Why so historic? Well, this new, rebooted version of Spider-Man is the first to be produced by Marvel Studios (The Avengers, Iron Man, Captain America) in conjunction with two other studios. As producer Amy Pascal put it, “I don’t think it will ever happen again in the history of the movie business: you have three studios that came together to have this movie being made. And no studio likes to share anything with anyone, let alone three studios.”

Spider-Man: Homecoming also stars Zendaya, Jon Favreau, Donald Glover and Tyne Daly.

Tom Holland Says Flash Thompson Will Be a Different Bully Than We’re Used To

In the comics, Flash Thompson was always a hulking bully who terrorized Peter Parker in high school. So when Marvel cast the scrawny Tony Revolori in the role, many people began to scratch their heads. I don’t mean scrawny in a negative way, but he’s nowhere near as large as the character who will eventually become Agent Venom. Continue reading
