Jon Watts Confirms Michael Keaton In SPIDER-MAN HOMECOMING; Vincent D'Onofrio Wants In
Jon Watts has confirmed on Twitter that Michael Keaton has likely signed on for Spider-Man: Homecoming. With that, the Kingpin himself wants to be in the Spider-Man reboot.
After numerous reports about negotiations to be in Sony/Marvel Studio's upcoming Spider-Man reboot, Spider-Man: Homecoming, it seems that Batman star Michael Keaton has signed on for film. Director Jon Watts has taken to Twitter to confirm it by posting a gif of Michael Keaton celebrating. Rumor is the role is for Keaton to play Vulture but that hasn't been confirmed by Watts or the studios.
Also the Kingpin himself, Vincent D'Onofrio, wants to be in Spider-Man: Homecoming. D'Onofrio has played Wilson Fisk/Kingpin in both seasons of the critically acclaimed Netflix series Daredevil. In the comics, Kingpin originally was a villain of Spider-Man's with his first appearance in Amazing Spider-Man #50. If you have seen Daredevil Season 2, you know that Wilson Fisk is still in prison but he doesn't look to be staying there for much longer.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will star Tom Holland in the title role, along with Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Michael Keaton as unnamed male character, Zendaya as the still unnamed female lead, Tony Revolori, Laura Harrier (also unknown characters) and Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man
