‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Featurette is All About the Film’s Villain, The Vulture

We are only one week away from the next big Marvel movie. Actually, it is a Sony Pictures film. The studio finally realized they were ruining Spider-Man and let Marvel take over. Today brought us a new featurette that is all about the main villain of Spider-Man: Homecoming, The Vulture (Michael Keaton).

The clip shows Toomes in action, and it is brilliant. If you are not already excited for this film, you need to get that way. The early reviews are placing Spider-Man: Homecoming on pace with Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the first Avengers. This is a good sign, considering the film is a new kind of Marvel film, in that it feels and plays out like nothing seen in the MCU to date.

Keaton is bringing real star-power to the MCU, and might give Marvel their first legitimate villain. The Vulture looks menacing, but fueled by true motivation, which is something Marvel villains are usually criticized for.

Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, young Peter Parker returns home to live with his Aunt May. Under the watchful eye of mentor Tony Stark, Parker starts to embrace his newfound identity as Spider-Man. He also tries to return to his normal daily routine — distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just a friendly neighborhood superhero. Peter must soon put his powers to the test when the evil Vulture emerges to threaten everything that he holds dear.

Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker/ Spider-Man, Michael Keaton as the Vulture, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Logan Marshall-Green, Donald Glover, Zendaya, and Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark/ Iron Man. Jon Watts helms the picture that takes Peter Parker back to high school and his comic book roots.
