According to Toronto Sun, Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, has recently announced that the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming will star the 1989’s Batman and Academy Award candidate Michael Keaton as the villain The Vulture, even though that was not the initial casting. Not only is this piece of information now confirmed, but you can also have a sneak peak at what the character’s costume is going to look like.

Having played the role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, Tom Holland is given the part of this superhero again. Logan Marshall-Green will play a secondary villain, while Robert Downey Jr. will star as Tony Stark/Iron Man. Other crew members include Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Zendaya as a new character Michelle (rumored to be Mary Jane Watson) and, finally, Kenneth Choi as Peter’s high school Principal.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is written by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein and directed by Jon Watts. Composer Michael Giacchino has confirmed he will also work on the film. Besides the actors listed above, the upcoming movie will also star Tyne Daly, Tony Revolori, Donald Glover, Michael Barbieri, Martin Starr, Laura Harrier, Angourie Rice, Bokeem Woodbine and, last but not least, Jacob Batalon.
