SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Clip Shows Vulture’s Origin

The degree to which I’m excited to see Michael Keaton don some comic book villain garb in Spider-Man: Homecoming is getting dangerously close to the “unhealthy” range. To most people, he’s first and foremost Batman (or Beetlejuice), so the idea of him assaying one of Spidey’s oldest foes is both exciting and potentially inner-child-destroying. And from the look of everything we’ve seen thus far, Keaton’s take on Adrian Toomes is downright chilling. A new clip of Keaton in the film was shown this week on Ellen, and it shows the very moment Toomes decided to quit being a regular thief and start being a supervillain.

“The world’s changing. It’s time we change, too.” If superheroes and wormhole aliens exist, why shouldn’t street-level toughs up their game using stolen Stark technology? I mean, I get it. It’s maybe not the most law-abiding of mentalities, but it’s certainly forward thinking. As of yet, nobody has taken a SpaceX rocket and become, I dunno, Rocket Guy, and Elon Musk isn’t yet a armor-clad avenger, but that’s what movies are for, right?

Between Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2 this month and the curiosity surrounding Thor: Ragnarok for the end of the year, it’s possibly some people (I’ll cop to it, me as well) could have forgotten that Spider-Man in all his MCU glory will be hitting theaters July 7, but with a villain like Michael Keaton in the mix, we should all be doing back flips.

Are you excited to see Keaton’s Vulture take on Tom Holland’s Spidey and Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark in a little over a month? Talk about it in the comments below!
