More Spider-Man Coverage

Okay, spoilers ahead for anyone who wants to turn away now.


Studios President Kevin Feige has confirmed, over at the Toronto Sun, something that we pretty much already knew – Michael Keaton will play the villain of the piece – The Vulture in the new film – so Keaton really is Birdman!

Meanwhile, Tom Holland has been talking about playing Spidey and how his version of Peter Parker will be different. He also revealed that he is signed up for six Spider-Man movies:

You’ve seen the billionaire, the scientist, the soldier. Now it’s time to see the kid. And every decision we make on set is based off how would a kid react in this situation, so every fight scene we have is designed in a way that’s almost child-friendly, so he never actually punches anyone. It’s all done kind of by accident. I think the biggest difference is his youth and innocence.

They give you options, and those could be exercised whenever. Like a cameo in Avengers. I’m unclear as to which movies, though. I do know I have three Spider-Man movies and three solo movies contracted. But if you have another movie, Marvel is so good at working around it. They’re very respectful of your life, really. They understand that you have to work on other movies, and they try and fix it up so you can work around each other.

Zendaya is playing a character called Michelle. However, it is thought she will actually be playing Mary Jane Watson. Here’s what she had to say about the character and whether there is any romance between her and Peter Parker:

No [laughs]. My character is not romantic. My character is like very dry, awkward, intellectual and because she’s so smart, she just feels like she doesn’t need to talk to people, like “My brain is so far ahead of you that you’re just not really on my level.” So she comes off very weird. But to me, she is very cool because she’s deep. She’s always thinking about something, always reading. I like that. And I also like that I don’t really have to do anything for hair and makeup. I just get to walk in and walk out

Spider-Man: Homecoming opens on July 7, 2017.
