After much back and forth in regards to whether or not Michael Keaton would be hopping on board Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming, it seems to have been confirmed today that yes, the actor will indeed be in the upcoming reboot, likely as the Vulture.
While his role wasn’t specified, Watts took to Twitter to post the following image, all but confirming that the Birdman star has a part in his film. Marvel is still keeping quiet on the matter, but I think the Tweet below says it all.

Also taking to Twitter to stir the pot a bit was another member of the Marvel universe: Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin on Daredevil. As fans of the comics will know, the villain has long been one of Spidey’s opponents, so it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to have him appear in the film. And while there are no plans to include him just yet, the actor certainly seems up for it.

With production on Spider-Man: Homecoming heating up, it’s likely just a matter of time now before we get a confirmed cast. As it stands though, we have Tom Holland in the titular role, with Marisa Tomei, Zendaya, Tony Revolori, Laura Harrier, Robert Downey Jr. and very likely Michael Keaton supporting him.
Tell us, would you like to see D’Onofrio reprise his role as The Kingpin here? And who do you think Keaton could be playing? Will he take on the part of The Vulture? Sound off below and let us know!
