Michael Keaton Confirmed as The Vulture in SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING
Ever since Michael Keaton was cast as a villain in Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming, fans believed that he would be taking on the role of the Vulture. Until today, there's been no official word on who Keaton would be playing, but Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed that Keaton is indeed playing Vulture in the film.
During an interview with The Toronto Sun, Feige talked about his wish list of actors that are playing villains in their films, and that's where he dropped the news:
"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."
We have yet to see any photos of Keaton in the role, so Marvel has done a good job keeping the Vulture reveal under wraps. However, yesterday we posted a leaked piece of concept art featuring one of the designs for Vulture that you can see here.
I have no doubt that Keaton is going to be awesome in the role of Vulture. The guy is one of my favorite actors, and it's so cool that he landed a role like this. I can't wait to see what he does with it!
Spider-Man: Homecoming is set to be released in theaters on July 7, 2017.
