Michael Keaton in Talks for Villain Role in Next Year's Spider-Man Picture
Michael Keaton is in early talks to play the key villain role in next year's Spider-Man film, which has been confirmed as titled Spider-Man: Homecoming by Sony.
The role is unspecified at this early stage, and neither Sony or Marvel have made any statement regarding the reports. Keaton himself hasn't played a superhero role (that wasn't ironic) since 1992's Batman Returns.
Tom Holland plays the leading role in the film, and his arrival in Captain America: Civil War is being touted as a highlight. Marisa Tomei plays Aunt May in both Civil War and in Spider-Man. Rumours have come out of CinemaCon that The Vulture could be the villain for the film, or he may be a member of a Bond-style opening sequence.
