There's no official confirmation about Favreau so far but fairly safe to say we can trust all the rumours n wut not - besides likely possibility - wonder if anymore of Starks Associates will appear in here as well at some point in upcomin movies ...

I'm quite pleased with the film so far but I have to admit I am intriguied and interested and admit its got my expectations goin - esp for Mr Keaton as Vulture..

I mean it's nothing new to say that the MCU has a villain problem. The best shared universe in the biz does a lot of things right, but it just can't (or maybe won't) create exciting and fleshed out villains. You wouldn't think someone like the Vulture, an old man in a bird suit who gets beat up by a 15-year-old, would be the one who can break the trend; but in the hands of someone like Michael Keaton, it just might. Keaton has slowly been opening up about his role in the highly anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming and he teased that his take on Vulture won't be that of a standard villain.

Michael Keaton's next big movie is The Founder, the true story of how Ray Kroc turned McDonald's into a fast food empire. Despite the less than ethical ways Kroc makes that happen, in a talk with Variety Keaton spoke about his characters always have some sort of likeability. And apparently the Vulture will find a way to connect with people as well.

Quote:
Yeah, Vulture, recently. But not to give too much away, but interestingly, he is and he isn't, that character. He's a really interesting --- and more interesting than I thought --- villain because there's parts of him that you go, 'You know what? I might see his point.' Really, really. It makes it interesting to play.
The best villains are always the ones that you agree with (or at least see their point of view), so hopefully this is a good sign that the Vulture is heading in the right direction. Spider-Man fights some real relatable guys, and though he may not look it, the Vulture isn't too hard to understand. The villain is just really ridiculous on the surface.

Though there have been dozens of different iterations of his character, the basics are that he's a brilliant crotchety guy who gets screwed over by the powerful corporation he works for. He then swears his vengeance and turns to a life of crime by wearing a green bird suit.

Ok fair enough information on what exactly is the deal with the MCU version is still being under wraps, but Homecoming as already gone a long way to bring the Vulture to the big screen. He's been appropriately changed to fit into the real world (by MCU standards), by ditching the feathers for a more high-tech look. Just judging from the trailers alone, not only is he more impressive to look at, but he's also threatening -- something the comic version has never really been able to boast. While that doesn't mean he'll be a great villain by any means, it's at least a start.

MCU villains have always been a problem. Genrally (barring Loki) they don't bother to flesh out the villains maybe because they usually end up dead.

Well speaking of Villians - esp in the trailer - even tho this moment lasts just a second, but when it possibly gives us our first look at one of Spider-Man: Homecoming's supporting villains, The Shocker - you know when The man shooting that energy blast looks like Logan Marshall-Green, who was reported to be playing an antagonist. Not only that, but he's wearing a yellow, waffle-pattern shirt, which is the same costume design Shocker has in the comics. That points towards Marshall-Green definitely playing the MCU's Shocker, right?

Not so fast, because in the international trailer, Bokeem Woodbine is seen not only using a similar energy weapon, but also wearing a yellow shirt. As it weird as it sounds, this could mean that Spider-Man: Homecoming will have multiple Shockers. Going back to that quick snippet from the main trailer, we also see Donald Glover's character, showing that whoever he's playing is connected to these criminals.

SO Vulture and Multiple Shockers? I mean go figure esp since Iron Mans inc in here but still quite a high villian count for young Spidey to contend with .... which actually makes a difference from most initial 1st films where they tend to focus on one villain then move on to two + in the follow ups...

Marvel have been revealing more toys and it seems the Iron Man armour in this movie has a colour scheme inspired by Ultimate iron Man

The highly anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming is still months away, but when it finally does swing onto the big screen Tom Holland's Peter Parker won't just have The Vulture to contend with. Classic Spidey villain Shocker is also out to cause some trouble. And though we've already got an idea of what his costume looks like thanks to some set photos, that was all pre-CGI stuff. The baddie will end up looking much different by the time the movie rolls around, but now we might have a better idea of what we can expect to see.

Click here to view

Thanks to Eric Cameron and his Instagram account, we now might have our best look at Shocker's costume yet. Cameron attended a private event held by Hasbro, where the toy company revealed their next slate of toys -- the true ultimate spoiler of superhero movies -- for the next several months. In addition to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming had a large presence, and Cameron was able to snap a picture of some promotional material that happened to feature Shocker.

Now seeing as how this is for a toy, this costume may not be the exact same version that ends up in the film, which could go through some substantial changes before the release date. But the toy version will at least be in a similar vein to the movie, and should lay a foundation for what we're in for. With that in mind, this costume is definitely for the Shocker. It has his signature yellow quilt patches with more orange and blue thrown in (Shocker never did have the best sense of color). He also has a pair of high-tech looking goggles over his face. Finally, what would Shocker be without his vibration gauntlets, which here look much bigger and cover his whole hand. The costume does look kind of lame, but then again, so is Shocker.

In Homecoming, Herman Schultz aka Shocker is played by Bokeem Woodbine, but to what extent exactly is still unclear. Michael Keaton's Vulture will be the main Big Bad of the superhero film, and how Shocker plays into the grand scheme of things is unknown. Is he a Spider-Man 3-type villain that shares the load or is he more like the Rhino in Amazing Spider-Man 2, where he has nothing to do with the plot and just serves as a body for Spider-Man to fight?

We'll likely get better looks at Shocker as we get closer to the release date of Spider-Man: Homecoming, which hits theaters on July 7, 2017.

Glad to see they haven't ditched the quiltman look completely

Additional Comment:

New trailer out, more Iron Man, Spidey in his orginal costume, more Vulture but apart from Ned and a couple of shots of Aunt may, vary little of Pete's supporting cast

Another trailer, the spidey suit should have been the Iron Spider suit at the rate it is going with all the gadgets. Getting a bit worried with the amount of Iron man in the trailers, it makes it look like they are trying a bit too hard to make this a MCU movie

Sony’s Spider-Man spinoffs, Venom and Silver and Black, may not exist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe... but Sony has plans for all of their Spider-Man films to share the same universe. And, contrary to reports, the door isn’t closed on Tom Holland showing up in them.

In a recent interview, Spider-Man: Homecoming producer Amy Pascal revealed that all three movies will exist in the same world... even if Spider-Man: Homecoming is connected to the MCU in a way the other films will not be. The relationship between the films in Sony’s Marvel Universe (still a weird name) has been up in the air, especially since director Kevin Feige confirmed that Venom (played by Tom Hardy) would not be part of the MCU. Here’s what Pascal said:

Both movies will all take place in the world that we’re now creating for Peter Parker. I mean, they’ll be adjuncts to it, there may be different locations, but it will still all be in the same world and they will be connected to each other.

Pascal was then asked if Holland would appear as Spider-Man in one or both of those films, to which Pascal replied: “There’s a chance... there’s always a chance.” I mean, I’m not a linguistics expert... but that sounds like they’re trying to make it happen. This is a bit surprising, as it was previously implied that Holland’s Spider-Man would not appear in the films at all, and it’s not certain how it would even work. Holland is contracted for at least six movies with Disney and Marvel, including three solo films.

It’s unclear what this will mean for the relationship between Sony and Marvel, which is complicated enough with Spider-Man alone. If these characters exist in the same universe as Spider-Man: Homecoming, but not in the MCU itself, that could open a big wide hole of complications and contradictions in the normally controlled cinematic universe.

A black cat or venom movie without spider-man is kinda stupid if you ask me.

Seems like they have changed their mind again. Given by thier recent comments it seems that while the spin-offs will be part of the MCU, they won't be really referring to it.

Well Sony is moving forward with their plans to expand the Spider-Man universe by setting an entire film around the character of Venom, however, it turns out that's not the only major villain who will be in the new movie. A new report claims that the other major Spider-Man villain born of an alien symbiote, Carnage, will also make an appearance.

This news is buried in a larger story by The Hollywood Reporter about Spider-Man and the strange path that the newest version of the character has taken back to the big screen, being a collaboration between both Sony and Marvel Studios. It simply includes the information that Carnage will be part of the previously announced Venom movie which is set to star Tom Hardy in the title role.

The fact that Carnage is making an appearance in Venom may be news, but it's hardly surprising. The news that Sony is working on both the Venom movie and Silver & Black shows that they're not wasting much time in building out the larger Spider-man universe, so it was really only a matter of time before Carnage showed up.

While Venom himself started his comic book life as a villain, he's become more of an anti-hero these days, and if that's the plan for the character in the new movie, it makes sense that Carnage is the villain for the film. While Eddie Brock, may be a criminal, he isn't without morality, Carnage is a psychopath.

The fact that the origin story of Carnage is closely linked to that of Venom makes him the obvious choice for a villain in the film. Many comic book movies make similar choices for their bad guys in origin stories because it allows for setting up an antagonist easily so the story can still do all the necessary character building for their lead. That's likely what's happening here as well.

Still interesting developments.

A few things


1) Keep your eyes peeled for a possible Ant-Man and the Wasp Spider-Man: Homecoming post-credit scene.

Quote:
Ant-Man and the Wasp director Peyton Reed has taken to Instagram to tease something soon for the movie with: "Stay tuned."
Ant-Man and the Wasp actually opens almost one year from the day that Spider-Man: Homecoming opens to, so it could be possible that a Spider-Man: Homecoming post-credit scene may feature Ant-Man and the Wasp, which opens July 6, 2018.

2) Tom Holland has already shown that he loves his fans. However, the actor recently went the extra mile to make sure that some of them were able to get his autograph, even though he couldn't see them. The actor is currently in Russia on the press tour for the upcoming release of Spider-Man: Homecoming. He found himself stuck in his hotel with dozens of fans waiting outside to see him. Since he couldn't come down, he found a way to get the autographs they likely wanted down to the fans. Check it out.

Tom Holland starts his Instagram video by saying he's been told he's not allowed to leave the hotel. It's not uncommon in situations like this for actors to be managed like this. There's a crowd outside that will almost certainly mob the new Spider-Man if he goes down there. While Holland likely understands that, he also wants to give the fans what they want, so he starts putting his autograph on a bunch of Spider-Man comic pages, which he apparently just carries around for this purpose, wads them up into balls and starts flinging them out the window to the assembled crowd below.

We can appreciate Tom Holland's understanding that this could have turned out bad. He says at one point that he doesn't want to start a frenzy, and it very easily could have turned out that way. Once the first person investigates the paper ball that came from the window and realizes what it is, there will almost certainly be people scrambling to grab the ones that come after that. However, it looks like the fans remained more or less in control, which is nice. Apparently, Russian crowds are much nicer.
