Plus the film’s working title!
CinemaCon is going on right now in Las Vegas and Sony Pictures is due to showcase their upcoming slate of films. We might begin to get our first glimpses at the latest Spider-Man reboot.
According to Devin Faraci at Birth.Movies.Death. the classic Spider-Man villain The Vulture will make an appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming (the film’s title per Devin Faraci). While Sony hasn’t confirmed anything, Faraci seems pretty sure of this fact.
The Vulture appearing in Spider-Man: Homecoming actually makes a lot of sense once you think about it. Sony has been planning on using the character for a while. In fact, Vulture is the villain that Sam Raimi was planning on using in his planned Spider-Man 4 before his franchise fell apart, and Vulture was even teased in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 .
Marvel is going to want to distinguish themselves from the past two versions of the character, and they way to do that would be to use a completely new villain. Even with all the teases, we have yet to actually see a live-action version of the Vulture. While it’s unclear if will be the main villain of the film and not just one of many, it looks like we’ll be seeing the old bird soon.
While the Vulture was never one of my favorite villains, I’m glad they are mixing it up instead of rehashing the past two franchises. Vulture is one of Spider-Man’s classic villains, and it’ll be cool to see him in live action. I’m still holding out for Mysterio to be the main villain of the film, but Vulture will be a nice change of pace.
Spider-Man: Homecoming (rumored title) releases July 7th, 2017.
