While we are just a week away from the opening of Spider-Man: Homecoming, starring Tom Holland as Peter Parker, the entertainment world is already hungry for details on the sequels. In the new film, we will see the iconic web-slinger face Adrian Toomes a.k.a. The Vulture played by Michael Keaton. But what villains can we expect to see in future installments?
Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige and Sony producer Amy Pascal recently spoke with Hey U Guys where they chatted about the new Spider-Man franchise. At one point they were asked if we might ever see the return of Harry and Norman Osborn. While the producers haven’t discussed that at this point, Feige stressed that they are focusing heavily on introducing Spider-Man villains that we haven’t seen on the big screen yet.
“We haven’t talked about that. What’s fun about this is it’s the first time Spider-Man is in the MCU. And the first time he’s played by an actor who is the age, essentially, Spidey was in the comics for so long. And, as Michael Keaton does with the Vulture, we get to explore villains we haven’t seen before. Spidey has an amazing rogues gallery, so at some point I think it might be interesting to revisit some of the characters we’ve seen in films before, but right now, we think there are a lot of new ones we haven’t played with yet.”
“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.

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.
