The latest rumor from Schmoes Know is that Spider-Homecoming will feature 3 villains!
We already know two of the three, with one being the Vulture/Adrian Toomes, who is reportedly played by Michael Keaton (though, Schmoes thinks Prometheus actor Logan Marshall-Green could end up in that role), and the second being Shocker/Herman Schultz, who is being played by Fargo actor Bokeem Woodbine — based on a leaked call sheet. So, who's the third antagonist?
"This third ‘villain’ is a non-super powered character who butts heads with Peter in his everyday life," Schmoes Know reports. "He also may be the new someone Aunt May begins dating in the film, a guy that Peter does not approve of. Whether or not the guy is actually bad or its just Peter’s prejudices clouding his judgement remains to be seen. My bets are on a teacher who comes in, trying to fill in the father role he feels is lacking in Peter’s life.
"We’ve also been told that there will be a surprise appearance from a character that is central to the Spider-Man mythos, one who will play a larger role in upcoming films," they continue. "We just can’t confirm who it is at this time."
I could see Aunt May dating an unsavory individual in the film. In the comics, after Ben died, Aunt May had some interesting love interests, such as Jarvis (not the A.I.), Doctor Octopus (almost got married!), Willie Lumpkin (the Fantastic Four's mailman), and she even got hitched to John Jonah Jameson, Sr. (father of J. Jonah Jameson).
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Marvel Studios' Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging superhero in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
The cast features Tom Holland (In the Heart of the Sea), Michael Keaton (Batman, Birdman), Zendaya (K.C. Undercover), Donald Glover (The Martian, Community), Jacob Batalon (North Woods), Laura Harrier (One Life to Live), Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel), Tyne Daly (Cagney and Lacey), Bokeem Woodbine (Fargo), with Marisa Tomei (My Cousin Vinny, The Wrestler), and Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man, The Avengers). It also includes Martin Starr (Silicon Valley), Kenneth Choi (The People vs. O.J. Simpson), Michael Mando (Better Call Saul), Selenis Leyva (Orange is the New Black), Isabella Amara (The Boss), Jorge Lendeborg, Jr. (Graceland), JJ Totah (Liv and Maddie), and Hannibal Buress (30 Rock).
The film is being directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car, Clown), based on a screenplay by Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley (Vacation reboot) and Jon Watts & Christopher Ford and Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers.0comments
