Spider-Man: Homecoming’s Michael Mando Allegedly Making MCU Return

One of the best things that Spider-Man: Homecoming managed to do was introduce several villains without taking the spotlight away from Michael Keaton’s Vulture. The movie somehow introduced the Tinkerer, two different Shockers, the Prowler, and Scorpion played by Better Call Saul’s Michael Mando.

We haven’t gotten any updates from Mando since Homecoming, but a rumor is going around that he’s going to be making his MCU comeback. This comes from @MyTimeToShineHello:

So far, nothing official has been confirmed by Marvel or Sony, but a return from Mando would make sense; what with his character already set-up. In Homecoming, he was there to make a deal with the Vulture for some stolen weapons tech, and after Spider-Man thwarts the deal, Scorpion ends up in prison with some serious injuries, and he even has a brace that would set-up some kind of high-tech prosthetic:

We don’t know exactly what they have planned for him, but the animated Spider-Verse kind of builds on the idea of the Mando Scorpion by introducing a Scorpion that spoke Spanish, and with a lot of his body parts being high-tech prosthtics—one arm being a claw.

If the new Spider-Man films have taught us anything, not every villain has to be the ‘big bad’, and classic villains from the comics can simply just be side characters or small-time crooks. It would be great to have Mando just have a short role in a future film, but seeing how his character was built up in Homecoming, it would be great if he could have a role he can really sink his teeth into.

No release date has been set for the next MCU Spider-Man movie.
