Peter Parker will face off with classic Spider-Man foe the Vulture, a new report out of CinemaCon suggests.
The report comes via Birth.Movies.Death, and claims that someone with inside information on the production of the next Spider-Man let slip that the airborne rogue will appear in the reboot, though how large his role will be remains unclear:
"The Vulture will be in this movie. Will he be the main baddie? Will he be a villain Spidey has to defeat in an opening scene? I don't know, although old rumors that passed by my ears indicated a non-main villain role for the old bird."
The report also confirmed that Spider-Man: Homecoming is the current title attached to the project, and that it may be made official as soon as Sony's CinemaCon presentation later today.
Fans of the original Spider-Man trilogy may remember that director Sam Raimi wanted to include the Vulture in one of his films. Raimi always favored those classic Stan Lee/Steve Ditko villains, but Sony Pictures preferred the more modern villains like Venom, leading to some tension between the two.
