Michael Keaton Set to Return in the Spider-Man: Homecoming Sequel

As we reported earlier, Jake Gyllenhaal is in talks to join the cast of the sequel to Marvel and Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming. While THR was reporting that he was being cast as Mysterio, the report from Variety had an interesting piece of information about it: Michael Keaton, who played the Vulture in the first movie, is going to return as well.

Michael Keaton Set to Return in the Spider-Man: Homecoming Sequel

At the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming, the Vulture was very much still alive and in prison where he didn't give up Spider-Man's name to Mac Gargan, aka The Scorpion. It was unclear why Vulture wouldn't give up that information, and some thought it was turning over a new leaf because the conversation took place right before he went to go see his wife and daughter. Variety is reporting that Vulture and Gyllenhaal's villain would be doing a team-up type of situation gong for the normal multiple villains in a sequel thing. Keaton's Vulture is easily one of the best villains that Marvel has made so far, so it's great to see him returning.

Sony and Marvel's sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming is due out July 5th, 2019. John Watts is set to return as director with Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei, and Zendaya all starring.
