Spider-Man: Homecoming was always going to include the Shocker, but fans probably didn't expect there to be two of them.
Spoilers incoming for Spider-Man: Homecoming, so if you haven't seen it yet you've been warned.
Sony previously released the cast list for Homecoming (via ComicBookMovie), which revealed that two actors have been assigned the Shocker role. The two actors are Logan Marshall-Green and Bokeem Woodbine, and here's why both are listed for the part.
Logan Marshall-Green plays Jackson Brice, who works for Adrian Toomes' budding alien gun running business. Brice is given a gauntlet to use on runs, but after a somewhat unsuccessful run, Toomes chides him for being so careless. Brice isn't hearing it though, so Toomes cuts him loose. After Brice threatens to expose his operation, Tooms vaporizes him, though to be fair he thought it was an anti-gravity gun.
That paves the way for Woodbine's Herman Schultz to take the gauntlet from that point forward. Along the way someone jokes he should have a nickname like "the Shocker", but he doesn't actually go by that.
So, two villains for the price of one!
Spider-Man: Homecoming currently enjoys a 4.12 out of 5 on ComicBook.com's anticipation rankings.
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
The cast includes Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, JacobBatalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, with Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr. It also includes Jon Favreau, Martin Starr, Kenneth Choi, Michael Mando, Selenis Leyva, Isabella Amara, Jorge Lendeborg, Jr., JJ Totah, and Hannibal Buress.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming are in theaters now, followed by Thor: Ragnarok on November 3, 2017. After that Black Panther debuts on February 16, 2018, while Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4, 2018.
