STAR WARS Star Mark Hamill Really Wanted To Play The Vulture In SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

STAR WARS Star Mark Hamill Really Wanted To Play The Vulture In SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

Michael Keaton received an overwhelming amount of praise for his portrayal of The Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but it seems Mark Hamill was eager to sink his talons into the role too...

While Michael Keaton's involvement in Spider-Man: Homecoming started off very shaky, fans were all too happy to have the actor take up the role of Adrian Toomes/The Vulture in Spider-Man's first entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Unfortunately, Keaton's acceptance of the role meant that Star Wars star Mark Hamill was out of luck; apparently the actor had his sights set on the role during Keaton's initial negotations, and was hoping that he would turn it down.

"I don’t want to jeopardize any potential roles I might have in a future Marvel film," Hamill told Rotten Tomatoes at the D23 Expo over the weekend. "I had my fingers crossed that Michael Keaton would turn down the Vulture but darn it. There’s not a lot of villainous roles for senior citizens so I had my eyes on the Vulture."

While Hamill certainly would have been an interesting choice, it's hard to argue with the performance we received in the film from Keaton. Do you want to see Hamill take on a villainous (or not-so-villainous) role in the MCU? Let us know who you think he could play in the comments!
