‘Spider-Man’ Standalone Movie Could Feature The Appearance of a Very Interesting Villain

There’s been a lot of talk about Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, and after having seen the film, I think I can safely say that fans out there will be very happy with how Kevin Feige and the Marvel creative team have brought the character to life onscreen this time, and his role in the film will probably just make them even more excited for his solo movie next year.

With a rumored title of Spider-Man: Homecoming as well, the film will be directed by Cop Car‘s Jon Watts and starring Marisa Tomei and Zendaya along with Holland. Thanks to a new rumor running around online as well, it looks like we may know who one of the film’s villains will be. Before any of you get worried about too many villains as well, read the rest of the story first.

According to a new report from Birth.Movies.Death., the film may feature the appearance of Adrian Toomes a.k.a. The Vulture, though the site says they don’t have any details as to whether or not the character will be the film’s main villain, or how much screen time he’ll even have. After Sam Raimi’s hopes of inlcuding the character were dashed from his original trilogy as well, it’d be nice to see the iconic, campy character finally receive an onscreen treatment. Even if it is for a brief, fleeting moment.

In addition, the report states that it’s looking more and more like the film’s title will be Spider-Man: Homecoming, after a recent purchase of a domain name led many to believe Sony and Marvel had come down to a final name for the 2017 film.

Honestly, I can’t imagine a better villain to help usher Holland’s character onto the big screen than the campy and ridiculously fun Vulture. If it were up to me, I’d want the film’s main villain to be Mysterio, though it looks like this is all we’re getting about the film’s antagonists for now, but even so, the contrast between Peter Parker’s youth and Toomes’ elderly age could only help to make it an even more comedic dynamic between the two as well. If the film manages to keep the same Spider-Man from Civil War alive though, I really don’t care who they pick as the villain because that will be a movie I’ll want to see no matter what at this point.

Spider-Man will hit theatres on July 7th, 2017.
