Vulture-Spider-Man: Homecoming

Talking to Variety, actor Michael Keaton talk about his role as Adrian Toomes — a.k.a. The Vulture — in Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios‘ upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming.

“Not to give too much away, but interestingly, he is and he isn’t, that character,” Keaton said of The Vulture being a villain. “He’s a really interesting — and more interesting than I thought — villain because there’s parts of him that you go, ‘You know what? I might see his point.’ Really, really. It makes it interesting to play.”

“No, I mean, not at all. It’s just a thing. A gig,” Keaton stated. “I don’t mean it’s just a gig, it’s the next job. And you think you can do it or want to do it and in fact I said no, because I couldn’t, it didn’t work in my schedule. Then I’m glad to say, they kind of shifted the scheduling and it worked out. So it fit in and I’m glad I did it.”

Spider-Man: Homecoming also stars Zendaya, Jon Favreau, Donald Glover and Tyne Daly, movie will hit theaters on July 7, 2017.
