Michael Keaton Confirmed To Play The Vulture In Spider-Man: Homecoming
While Keaton’s involvement with the film has been established for a while now, his casting as the villain has just been formally acknowledged by the studio. He joins a litany of actors in the highly-anticipated Spider-Man reboot, which stars Tom Holland as the titular webslinger.
Keaton, of course, is no stranger to the superhero genre. The actor is remembered by many as the hero of Tim Burton‘s Batman series, in addition to having a stint as a guest on Batman: The Animated Series. On top of this, the aforementioned Birdman featured Keaton as a washed-up actor who became famous for portraying a Batman-parody:
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Tom Holland reprises the role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man he first played in Captain America: Civil War. He is joined by Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Logan Marshall-Green as a secondary villain, Kenneth Choi as Peter’s high school Principal, and Zendaya as a character by the name of Michelle (rumored to be Mary Jane Watson).
Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Homecoming also stars Donald Glover, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Angourie Rice, Jacob Batalon, Tyne Daly, and Bokeem Woodbine.
