Today sees the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming with advanced Thursday night screenings.
While promoting the movie, Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige hinted at the villain for the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel as Feige told the Toronto Sun it will probably be someone new who hasn’t been on screen before.
We are excited to use characters that you haven’t seen before on screen. So that narrows it down a little bit in terms of who will pop up next. Spider-Man has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to villains and there are a lot that haven’t been touched upon. It’s those that we will be looking at first.
Regarding just who the villain of Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 may be, there is already rumor and speculation.
Michael Mando is playing Mac Gargan in Spider-Man: Homecoming who in the comics is known as the Spider-Man villain Scorpion and who also fits Kevin Feige’s description of someone who hasn’t been touched upon on the big screen.
We can also cross out previous Spider-Man villains such as Venom, Sandman, Doc Ock, Green Goblin, Electro, Rhino and The Lizard, as they all have been featured in the movies. We can nix Carnage as well because Carnage will be a part of the unrelated Sony Tom Hardy Venom movie, and Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio are rumored for Sony movies as well, so they are off the list. Kingpin is also a part of Marvel TV, so he won’t be featured in the MCU as well.
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” has a July 7, 2017 release directed by Jon Watts starring Tom Holland, Zendaya, Michael Keaton, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, with Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr.
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
