Marvel boss Kevin Feige has now confirmed that Oscar-nominated actor Michael Keaton will play the villainous Vulture in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.

In comic books, the Vulture was an alias used by Adrian Toomes. Created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, Toomes was an electronics engineer who invented a special suit that enabled him to fly and also gave him enhanced strength. He turned to a life of crime after being wronged by his business partner.

Homecoming is set for release on July 7, 2017. It’s directed by Jon Watts

The first standalone Spidey movie from Marvel Studios, Homecoming also stars Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr, Donald Glover, Tony Revolori, and Tyne Daly
