Spider-man: Homecoming casts The Tinkerer

August 11th, 2016 by Marc Comments


While we most likely have The Vulture in the shape of Michael Keaton in Spider-man: Homecoming, many thought that he may be assisted by another Marvel bad guy, The Tinkerer who makes weapons and gadgets for numerous bad guys in the Marvel comics.

And it looks like those people were right as The Most Hated Woman in America’s Michael Chernus has joined Sony Pictures and Marvel’s webslinger movie as Phineas Mason, the Tinkerer.

Who? Well, according to the “Very little is known about the criminal known as the Tinkerer. First encountered by Spider-Man early in the webspinner’s career, he appeared to be the leader of an alien task force attempting to control the world. Though Spider-Man stopped the “invasion”, the Tinkerer got away leaving behind only a rubber mask, leaving a confused Spider-Man to ponder just who or what the Tinkerer really was.Years later, Spider-Man learns that the Tinkerer is an ordinary man who has an extraordinary talent for anything mechanical, and his “aliens” were really movie stuntmen in costumes, doing his dirty work.

“The Tinkerer has in recent years been inventing armor and weapons for various super-criminals, including the Beetle, the Big Wheel, Hobgoblin (Jason Macendale), and the Constrictor.”

Looks like Spidey will have his hands full with unconventional villains.

Do you like the idea of a big screen Tinkerer? Let us know…

Spider-man: Homecoming is directed by Jon Watts and stars Tom Holland and Michael Keaton along with Marissa Tomei, Zendaya and Robert Downey Jr.

It swings into cinemas on July 7th, 2017.

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….
