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 Marvel.com: “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.
