In the new franchise, the popular actor Tom Holland has been cast as Peter Parker/Spiderman. It is based on “Spiderman Homecoming” storyline, the comic was launched in the 1990’s and the idea was to re-invent Spiderman character in comics which totally aligns with the present vision of Sony Pictures. The title is apt as it’s a coming-of-age High-school drama and he is actually coming back to his home – MCU. Also, the previous two incarnations Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield couldn’t deliver big at the global box-office. He has already been introduced into the Marvel cinematic universe and the upcoming movie is set in the world post Captain America Civil War.
Michael Keaton has been roped in to play the classic Spiderman villain – Vulture. wearing a suit which gives him the ability to fly at increased strength, built from the remains of Chitauri (a race of extra-terrestrial shape-shifters) technology from the battle of New York. He will also employ the help of a villain called Tinkerer to make the suit, in comics, he is known to be a man with a penchant to make spectacular mechanical devices. There was a rumor floating that Shocker is also one of the villains, he is a clever, manipulative, street-smart genius who seem easy to beat on the surface but is a formidable adversary.
At San Diego Comic-Con, the studio accidently leaked the three villains which basically confirmed the fan theory– Vulture, Tinkerer, and Shocker (both are part of Spiderman Rogues gallery). Also, there is a possibility of Hobgoblin as the trailer featured Peter Parker’s friend whose name is Ned Leeds. They may go in for “ENFORCERS”, a big villain team-up of goons hired by super-criminals like Norman Osborn.
The movie is expected to hit theatres on July 6, 2017.
