One of Spider-Man’s greatest villains will officially be entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe next week when Michael Keaton’s Vulture flies into theaters in Spider-Man: Homecoming. After so many Spider-Man movies in the last ten years, Adrian Toomes is finally making his live-action debut through the new Spider-Man franchise starring Tom Holland.
The web-slinger himself recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about Keaton’s performance in the new film. According to Holland, the Batman and Birdman star has quite the terrifying performance throughout the movie that he is excited for people to see.
“Michael Keaton, he has a very intense malevolence to him which is really, really scary. Superhero movies are only as good as their villain. When people see what he’s done with this character — he really does nail it. He was terrifying.”
“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.”
Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming, starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Michael Chernus, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Angourie Rice and Abraham Attah, opens on Friday, July 7.
