Spider-Man: Homecoming will be the wall crawlers first solo adventure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will feature the first live-action appearance of the villain named The Vulture. Playing the classic Spidey nemesis is Michael Keaton, who is no stranger to comic book film adaptations having played the Caped Crusader in both of Tim Burton’s Batman films. In an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Keaton compared his experiences working on both superhero films and praised his co-star, Tom Holland.
Keaton noted the difference between how both films were made, praising both Tim Burton and the creative minds at Marvel.
“It’s really different. Really, really different in terms of how they’re made. You know when you think about what Tim did, Tim Burton, who to me is a just, there’s no one like him. He’s truly unique and he’s an artist and I love working with him. The Marvel people are kind of amazing. There’s all that interconnected lore of you know, Iron Man and all the, I’ll tell you there are so many characters. You have no idea how many characters there are in the Marvel world that we haven’t even heard of yet.”
Keaton also praised Tom Holland while poking fun at his co-star.
“He’s extraordinary that kid. I still kicked his little but in the movie, but it’s alright.”

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.
Directed by Jon Watts, the film stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Michael Chernus, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Angourie Rice, Abraham Attah, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will be released in theaters on July 7, 2017.

10 Spider-Man Villains Ready For The Big Screen
Spider-Man: Homecoming hasn’t even hit the big screen yet and fans are already clamoring for more Spider-Man. Second only to Batman, Spider-Man has the most threatening and entertaining rogues gallery in all comics. With countless TV shows and 5 movies already under his belt, it’s up to the creative folks over at Sony and Marvel to ensure his future on-screen adventures feel different from everything that’s come before.
Part of making sure any sequels to Homecoming feel fresh is featuring villains who haven’t already been used on the big screen. Sorry Green Goblin fans, but I never want to see Spider-Man fight an Osborne in theaters again. I’m already annoyed that I’ve seen Peter’s origin two times in the movies, so I really don’t want to see him take down the same villains again and again.
