‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’: Michael Keaton Teases Vulture’s Complexity
We all know when it comes to comicbook villains in terms movies, they’re usually pretty one dimensional characters, focused on seeing the world suffer or something like that. But with the casting of the Oscar-nominated Michael Keaton as major supervillain, Vulture, in the upcoming film Spider-Man Homecoming, I’m hoping he changes the game.
Michael Keaton and Patrick Wilson, who’s taking on the role of Orm, better known as Ocean Master, in James Wan‘s Aquaman, sat down with EW to talk about there characters.

Here’s what Keaton had to say about Vulture:
“The character actually has more relevance. I know there’s this issue that comes up about how timely The Founder is, in terms of where we are now in this country. My character, actually, is, if not more relevant — and I’m not going to say more than that. There’s a B-story to this guy that’s kind of really interesting and really relevant. I would be lying if I said that’s why I took it, but as we talked about it and did, I went, ‘Whoa, there’s some layers to this guy.’ … This director’s [Jon Watts] is a very bright guy, and he wanted to bring this issue out. A lot of people are going to like him more than they probably want to, would be my guess.”
