Marvel and Sony have been playing together to come out with Spider-Man Homecoming! More cast members have been to the list including Michael Mando (Better Call Saul) and Bokeem Woodbine (Fargo). Woodbine is rumored to be a villain (possibly Carnage). Robert Downey Jr. is also going to be part of this story as Tony Stark. As Sony had this to say about being paired with Marvel.
“It’s been fantastic, our relationship with Marvel.” – Sony
Spider-Man made a good debut in Captain America: Civil War. He made a good first impression, though he wasn’t as much as a smart alec as he was in the original comics or series. Spidey also wanted to prove his worth to Stark. We can only hope Spider-Man can only get better from here!
Tom Holland will reprise his role as the awkward Spider-Man that we saw in Civil War. Michael Keaton has already been confirmed in Spider-Man Homecoming as the villain. However, it still has not been confirmed as to whether or not he will be Vulture. Logan Marshall-Green (Prometheus) has also been confirmed as a secondary villain. RDJ will also reprise his role Tony Stark, makes sense, as he is the one who helped Parker become Spidey. Marisa Tomei will also return as Aunt May. Kenneth Choi (Captain America: The First Avenger) was cast to be Peter Parker’s principle.
At least Sony has come to the conclusion that Marvel is going places. Sony is planning to continue working with Marvel. Spider-Man Homecoming will be the start of something new and wonderful. We can only hope that with this development Fox will come to the same conclusion and start working with Marvel as well. Considering Deadpool and the X-Men are huge when it comes to the Avengers and Spider-Man’s story arcs in the comics.
What do you think about this new development of Sony working with Disney/Marvel? Do you think Spider-Man Homecoming will make a good debut? Or are you tired of Spider-Man’s beginnings being told over and over again? Let us know in the comments!
