Michael Keaton Back in Talks to Play Villain in Spider-Man: Homecoming
After previous talks fell through, Michael Keaton is back in the mix to play the villain in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
According to THR, Oscar nominee Michael Keaton is in "final negotiations" to play the villain in Marvel's Spider-Man solo movie. The previous talks didn't make it past the offer stage, but after approaching other actors, Marvel Studios came back to Keaton.
If these talks are successful, which it sounds like they will be, Keaton will join an all-star cast that includes Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Marisa Tomei, who's playing Aunt May, Zendaya, who is rumored to play Peter Parker's love interest, and, of course, Tom Holland, who debuted as Spider-Man to rave reviews in Captain America: Civil War.
But who will he play? Marvel is keeping under wraps which villain Keaton would play, but our initial choices would be Hobgoblin or Vulture, the latter of which would be particularly meta after Keaton's role in Birdman.
Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters on July 7, 2017.
