The first reactions to the Spiderman: Homecoming movie are coming in and it seems to have exceeded the expectations of critics and will be another massive blockbuster Marvel movie. Tom Holland is playing Peter Parker, Michael Keaton is Vulture, Robert Downey Jr. is Tony Stark among others. The details of the sequel have begun pouring in already, for instance, we know that the timeline of the sequel will be few minutes after the Avengers 4 is over.
Vulture is the main villain in Homecoming wearing a suit which gives him the ability to fly at increased strength, built from the remains of Chitauri (a race of extraterrestrial shapeshifters) technology from the battle of New York. He employs the help of a villain called Tinkerer to make the suit.
In the comics, he is known to be a man with a penchant to make spectacular mechanical devices. There is also Shocker who is also one of the villains, he is a clever, manipulative, street-smart genius who seems easy to beat on the surface but is a formidable adversary.
Kevin Feige in a recent interview where he was talking all things Spiderman, made it clear that the sequels won’t have Green Goblin or Electro, Venom or Carnage or any of the previous villains. Here’s what he said:
“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.”
So who is left then? Kraven The Hunter, Chameleon, Spider-girl, Mysterio….Well, maybe that Sinister Six movie could finally be made with major changes. Who knows at this point?
