Now that production for “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is in full swing, the cast for Marvel and Sony’s new reboot have been growing larger as more awesome names have been added to the rooster.
The Hollywood Reporter just announced that “Fargo” star Bokeem Woodbine has just been cast as a bad guy. Though details on his role are still kept under wraps, reports say that Woodbine will be joining Michael Keaton and Logan Marshall-Green as the 3rd villain.
As of right now, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” reportedly has 3 villains. Although neither Marvel nor Sony has officially announced who those villains might be, word on the street is that Keaton will be playing The Vulture while Marshall-Green may possibly take on the role of The Tinkerer (real name Phineas Mason).
JoBlo has a theory that “The Vulture will be aided by none other than The Tinkerer, who will help him build his suit with recovered Chitauri tech from the battle of New York.” Meanwhile, James Roberts believes that Woodbine will probably play a secondary villain to Keaton’s main antagonist.
If you recall, the previous “Spider-Man” films were overcrowded with villains and fans are worried that “Spider-Man: Homecoming” may fall for the same mistake again.
However, hopes are still high ever since Tom Holland made his debut as the juvenile web-slinger in “Captain America: Civil War“. The fact that Marvel has been allowed to retain some creative control rights to Spider-Man is somewhat reassuring.
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” is expected to swing into theatres on 7th July 2017.
