This past Monday was Cinemacon and one of the stars to come through for the event was none other than the newest Spiderman/ Peter Parker, Tom Holland. Holland revealed at the event the new Spiderman film would be officially titled “Spiderman: Homecoming.” Not long after reports have come in that Oscar nominee Michael Keaton will be joining the film as the main villain. Sources say he maybe playing The Vulture in the film

For those not familiar, The Vulture a.k.a Adrian Toomes was a frequent villain for Spiderman, having fought many times. Vulture is known for wearing a green bird like suit and wearing a special electromagnetic wing suit that allows him to fly. He is a very old man in the comics but the suit allows him to withstand many of spiderman’s attacks. There have been several incarnations of The Vulture however Toomes is the most famous of them all.

Keaton will be joining Holland, Marisa Tomei and Zendaya in this new Spidey film. “Spiderman: Homecoming” hits theaters July 7th, 2017.
