Sources tell Variety that Keaton is in early talks to play a villain in the Marvel and Sony co-production “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” starring Tom Holland as the latest Spidey.
Marvel and Sony had no comment on the casting.
For Keaton, it also marks a switch from DC Comics to Marvel. The Oscar nominee famously played the Caped Crusader in Tim Burton’s “Batman” in 1989, causing his career to skyrocket.
The villain Keaton is being eyed to play is also being kept under wraps.
The villain is heavily rumored to be the Vulture, Adrian Toomes. But none of that is confirmed yet. Still, Vulture would be the obvious choice for Sony since previous Spider-films have come close to using Toomes at one point or another.
