SDCC: ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ to Have 3 Villains?

SDCC: ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ to Have 3 Villains?

During a toy panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, panelists may have let slip that Spider-Man: Homecoming will have three villains.

Twitter user ‘‘ was in attendance and shared the seeming confirmation that Vulture, Tinkerer and Shocker are in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Griffin then elaborated by stating no pictures were shared, but talk of the three villains came up when the panelists said they don’t have enough references images for those characters yet. So it would appear that talk somehow turned to Spider-Man: Homecoming action figures, or merchandise surrounding upcoming Marvel properties.

Of course, this should all be taken with a grain of salt. Although there has not exactly been official word on who the antagonist will be in the film, Michael Keaton’s role is most likely to be the Vulture. Recently leaked set photos from the filming of an action sequence in Spider-Man: Homecoming picture Tom Holland looking up at something – maybe a certain airborne villain? Besides that, Marvel’s famous Hall H panel pretty much confirmed Vulture was in the movie by releasing a new imageMarvel also revealed the film’s official synopsis; yet, it still does’t give much away.

As for Shocker and Tinkerer, this is the first time these villains have been attached to the movie. However, if three villains are indeed going to appear in the solo Spidey outing, it would be a very interesting move considering how jam packed The Amazing Spider-Man 2 felt with the same amount.

Spider-Man: Homecoming releases on July 7, 2017 and stars Tom Holland (In the Heart of the Sea), Michael Keaton (Batman, Birdman), Zendaya (K.C. Undercover), Donald Glover (The Martian, Community), Jacob Batalon (North Woods), Laura Harrier (One Life to Live), Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel), Tyne Daly (Cagney and Lacey), Bokeem Woodbine (Fargo), Angourie Rice (The Nice Guys), with Marisa Tomei (My Cousin Vinny, The Wrestler), and Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man, The Avengers).
