It seems that Spider-Man: Far From Home will not see the return of everyone as director Jon Watts has confirmed that Vulture actor and Batman star Michael Keaton will not return for the latest film.
During a recent interview with Fandango, the director talked at length about the upcoming film. When asked about Michale Keaton’s Vulture, however, he stated that he and his daughter would not be appearing in the upcoming film:
Keaton is not in the movie, and Laura is not in the movie.
From the look of things, Spider-Man: Far From Home won’t be including one of its predecessors best characters!
Michael Keaton, of course, played the film’s antagonist, the Vulture. After a contract to clean up New York City after the events of the first Avengers film, Michael Keaton’s character took to robbing shipments full of dangerous tech from other villans and selling them on the black market which eventually brought him into conflict with Spider-Man. The last we saw of Michael Keaton’s Vulture he was in prison protecting Spider-Man’s identity. And, from the look of things, we won’t be seeing where this leads in the next film.

“This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.”
Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the X-Men.
