First look at Spider-man: Homecoming’s Bokeem Woodbine as the villainous Shocker

September 6th, 2016 by Marc Comments


While we’ve know for a while now that actor Bokeem Woodbine was playing Spider-man villain Shocker AKA Herman Schultz in Spider-man: Homecoming (here), we finally have an actual look at him is the costume…

Ad while the suit isn’t exactly comic-accurate, it is unmistakable at the character from the pages of the Marvel comics.

The character, who has a penchant for electrocuting people with his gauntlets, has many of the trademark costume touches including the diamond pattern on the suit and the dark red – or is it brown? – in places.

While the suit looks thrown together, we’re willing to bet we’ll see a more elaborate look towards the end of the movie, especially side we’ve heard already that the villains will have Stark Tech weapons as they will be kitted out bu ex-Tony Stark employee, The Tinkerer.

Want to bet that’s where the gloves come from? Yeah, us too…

So, what do you think of Shocker? Yes or no?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
