Spider-Man Homecoming Character Names Confirmed by Director

3 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been just over a month since Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming started filming in Atlanta, with many fans wondering if the cast and crew would take a break in the production to swing by Marvel's Hall H panel at Comic-Con yesterday afternoon. As it turns out, those rumors proved to be true, with director Jon Watts and cast members Tom Holland, Zendaya, Tony Revolori, Jacob Batalon and Laura Harrier stopping by to reveal the first footage, along with new concept art that confirms the presence of the movie's main villain, Vulture. While the footage hasn't debuted online quite yet, a new interview with the director and stars reveals exactly who Tom Holland's co-stars are playing.

Heading into Sdcc, we knew that Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr. were reprising their Captain America: Civil War roles as Peter Parker, Aunt May and Tony Stark/Iron Man, respectively. However, while »

Watch Spider-Man: Homecoming Comic-Con Panel and Cast Interviews

8 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After famously skipping Comic-Con last year, Marvel Studios more than made up for it this year with an incredible Hall H panel that shed plenty of light on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We already knew going into the Con that Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy would be featured during the studio's Saturday panel, but we didn't know what other movies would be presented. One of the biggest surprises was when the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming flew in from Atlanta, despite being in the midst of production, to present the first footage from the movie. While we don't have that footage quite yet, we do have a number of video interviews with the stars.

During the Hall H panel last night, Marvel also unveiled new concept art featuring the main villain, Vulture, who also surfaced at the end of the footage shown to the Comic-Con crowd. The footage is set at the high school, »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Director Talks High School Setting; Tom Holland Dishes On His Peter Parker

9 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In hindsight, Marvel Studios’ presence at San Diego Comic-Con may not have heralded as much new footage as that of Warner Bros. – Wonder Woman, Suicide Squad, King Arthur and even Justice League each enjoyed their time in the limelight – but after confirming Brie Larson as Captain Marvel and unveiling a fresh look at Benedict Cumberbatch’s good doctor, there’s still plenty for fans to chew over.

Speaking of which, many of the key players involved in Spider-Man: Homecoming were in attendance at the annual event, and IGN spoke to both Tom Holland and director Jon Watts about the finer details of Marvel’s 2017 reboot.

Report Seemingly Reveals Two New Spider-Man: Homecoming Villains As Official Synopsis Lands

9 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite the initial back-and-forth surrounding Michael Keaton’s involvement, concept art emerging from Sdcc yesterday confirmed that, yes, the Oscar-winning star is attached to the villainous role of Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming. But he won’t be the only big bad to give Tom Holland’s wet-behind-the-ears Spidey a run for his money.

At least, that’s according to a report from the Diamond Select Toys Minimates’ Panel (via Cbm), claiming that one panelist may have accidentally revealed the identity of two new enemies that are bound for Jon Watts’ 2017 reboot.

More News From The Web

At the time of going to press, neither Sony nor Marvel offered to comment on the allegations, but should they hold true, Peter Parker will be going toe-to-toe with both Tinkerer and Shocker in little under a year’s time.

This toy panel just seemingly (accidentally?) confirmed that Vulture, Tinkerer, *and* Shocker are all in Spider-man: Homecoming. »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Concept Art Reveals The Movie’s Bad Guy

19 hours ago | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Ever since Spider-Man: Homecoming was announced, the persistent rumour doing the rounds was that the big bad this time round would be the high flying Vulture, with Michael Keaton strapping on the wings to play the role. Now, it’s being confirmed, with Marvel Studio's Comic-Con playing host to this awesome piece of concept art showing off not only the Vulture, but giving us another look at Spidey’s awesome new, Steve Ditko inspired costume. The Vulture is a villain Sam Raimi wanted way back in Spider-Man 3, but was cut due to the inclusion of Venom, so it’s great that we’re finally getting to see him on the big screen. I love the look of his technologically advanced suit, and that wing span is huge!!!!! And his inclusion promises some amazing septettes. Sure, Spidey has had some aerial battles before, but the fluidity and grace of The »

Peter Parker Battles The Vulture In New Spider-Man: Homecoming Concept Art

23 July 2016 8:26 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Those lucky enough to be in Hall H today were treated to some early footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming, and while there are no plans to release that online, Marvel Studios were at least kind enough to share a pretty spectacular piece of concept art for the highly anticipated reboot.

As you can see below, it features the iconic wall-crawler going toe to toe with The Vulture in an aerial battle. Some interesting changes have been made to the villain as his wings are much larger, he’s wearing a mask, and his feet (and body) are encased in an exoskeleton which is clearly going to make him more dangerous than ever before.

It’s certainly an upgrade on his quite silly comic book look anyway, but the fact that he’s wearing a mask obviously means we have no idea who’s under there. Rumours point to it being Michael Keaton, »

Spider-Man Homecoming Concept Art Confirms Villain; Hints Michael Keaton's Role

23 July 2016 7:58 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The worst kept secret at Marvel was finally confirmed during Sdcc 2016 with a piece of concept art that revealed who the main villain will be in Spider-Man: Homecoming!  Take a look!

While fans in attendance at Sdcc 2016 got to see actual footage of Spider-Man: Homecoming, we were not so lucky.  Instead, the most news we got for the film, still in progress, is this concept art that shows off Spidey in action against the new, and improved Vulture!

#asexpected

It's cool concept art but, the real news here is that, it further accentuates the rumor that Michael Keaton will be playing the tortured criminal.  Unfortunately, Keaton wasn't there to announce or deny and no one confirmed it during the panel.  It leads us to the question, "What are they waiting for?"

Who knows, but we'll certainly know a lot more about the next chapter of our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man when »

The first footage from Marvel Studios' "Spider-Man: Homecoming" was just screened at the San Diego Comic Con and showed a first look at Michael Keaton as The Vulture in the final shot. While the clip is not being released online, Marvel has posted the concept art of the shot in question.

José Padilha Laments ‘RoboCop’ Remake, Says ‘I Didn’t Have The Creative Freedom I Needed’

20 July 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Brazilian director and producer José Padilha keeps himself busy nowadays with many film and TV projects after his big Hollywood break with a modern remake of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 film “RoboCop.” Released in 2014, the film was a commercial success but garnered mostly mixed to negative reviews. N0w in an interview with ScreenDaily, Padilha admits that making “RoboCop” was a “stressful experience.” “I didn’t have the creative freedom I needed,” says Padilha. “I spent 90% of the time fighting. It made me realize that making a studio movie is not the same as making a film.” Padilha also says that he would “think a million times before getting involved in another production of that size again,” and that he’d “rather face the reality than make movies about superheroes.”
