Marvel has been known to create awesome, out of this world superheroes who dominate the Marvel world and take down the bad guy. And when we’re talking about Marvel’s bad guys, Marvel has been known to lack in really bad-ass ones. This implies that they are any less dangerous, just that they are not as memorable as the heroes. In the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming, The Vulture will prove whether or not the Marvel villain theory is finally stopped but he may have help from a Civil War villain.
Homecoming producer Eric Carroll revealed that a certain Civil War villain may be making an appearance, but not in the way that you would expect. Carroll told the website CinemaBlend:
“One of the guys on [The Vulture’s] team goes by The Shocker, which Toomes make fun of him for. ‘What is this, Pro-Wrestling?’ I think this is another really cool interpretation of a pretty classic costume. He’s got these insulated, yellow arms, like the Shocker in the comics. And that gauntlet, you’ll recognize from the beginning of ‘Civil War… It’s what’s Crossbones is using to kick the shit of Cap in that prologue. They scavenged it from the battle in Lagos and made a couple of upgrades so that it’s not a pneumatic punch machine. It also delivers a pretty hefty jolt when it connects, as well.”
Crossbone was not the biggest villain in Civil War but the character did attempt to kill both Captain America and the rest of The Avengers.

The villain did not survive facing the combined strength of the Avengers but it looks like parts of him will still be making chaos for Iron Man and Spider-Man. Since The Shocker is a part of The Vulture’s team, back when he was still Adrian Toomes, Crossbone’s gauntlet will definitely make the character an unbeatable force to be reckoned with.
