Spidey is in over his head in the latest clip from Spider-Man: Homecoming. Marvel is currently on the verge of releasing their second superhero blockbuster of the year in their shared universe. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has already proven to be a bigger hit than the original, and the studio is hoping the new Spider-Man film will beat out its predecessors. So far, things are looking good. The first reactions to Homecoming have been largely positive, while the film continues to dominate the conversation on social media. At this rate, the only question is how big of a hit will it be.
As the movie approaches a release date, we're also getting more and more insight into the film and Spidey's future in the MCU. Yesterday brought with it a creative new IMAX poster, and star Tom Holland has begun opening up about the villains he wants Spidey to face in the next film. Of course, we'll have to wait for the first movie—and likely Avengers 4—to hit theaters before we'll know too much about the sequel. In the meantime, there's still plenty of things from the first film to focus on.
Michael Keaton, who plays the Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming, stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night to share a new clip from the movie. Appearing at the 8:20 mark in the above video, the scene takes place during the ferry fight we've seen teased in the trailers. In it, we see Vulture and Spidey do battle, before the reason for the destruction of the ferry is fully revealed.
Aside from the exciting new clip, the whole interview is a joy to watch for fans of the actor. During the course of it, Keaton jokes that he's both Spider-Man in the new movie and the one and only Batman. Even more interesting, he discusses the little known fact that Keaton isn't his real last name. He was born Michael Douglas, but both that name and the shortened Mike version were taken. As such, he almost randomly chose Keaton as his performing name, but still uses his real one to confuse people.
Sadly, we know Michael Keaton only has a one picture deal with Marvel and Sony. And while he could still show up in a future Spidey movie, the charismatic actor doesn't look like he'll be back.
Meanwhile, despite reports that Iron Man won't be in the sequel to Homecoming, Robert Downey, Jr. has claimed he'll keep making Marvel films as long as they're still as high quality as they've been. Hopefully, that means Iron Man 4 is still on the table, but it could also mean Tony Stark will return for the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming.
