Michael Keaton will play the villainous Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige confirmed the news during an interview with Toronto Sun.

We’ve had a wish list and most of them in the near-term are coming together,” he said. “Cate Blanchett is playing Hela in Thor: Ragnarok. Michael Keaton’s Vulture in Spider-Man is something.”

Marvel previously confirmed that Keaton would appear in the movie but this is the first official confirmation of the character he would be playing.

Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into cinemas on July 7, 2017.

We’re also seeing a lot of people saying this is a concept piece of what he’ll look like in the movie… thanks to Reddit, so take it with a (possible) pinch of salt.

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….
