While confirming Jake Gyllenhaal’s role as Mysterio in 2019’s Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel, Variety confirmed that Michael Keaton, who brilliantly played the antagonist to Spidey in the first film, is on board for the sequel.
Keaton’s Vulture was widely regarded as one of Marvel Studios strongest villains as he served as antagonist to both Peter Parker and Spider-Man. Following their final battle in which Parker saved his life, Toomes found himself incarcerated and protecting Parker’s identity from fellow inmate Mac Gargan. Not much is known about the plot of the upcoming Spidey sequel other than it will take place right after Avengers 4, be shot overseas and follow Parker through his junior year, but with Mysterio joining Vulture, Bokeem Woodbine’s Shocker and Scorpion as part of the MCU, we seem to be building towards an onscreen iteration of the Sinister Six. Sony has been developing the Sinister Six as a property for some time and it’s possible that now, through their collaboration with Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios, they’ve finally settled on a way to bring a group of Spidey’s greatest villains together against him.
