Recently, we reported that Kraven the Hunter will be appearing in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Now, our inside sources, the same ones that helped us reveal Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield were signed on for No Way Home and Morbius would take place in the MCU, have exclusively confirmed to FandomWire and Popcorned Planet that Michael Keaton will be reprising his role of Adrian Toomes aka Vulture in Spider-Man: No Way Home, making him another iconic addition to the ever-expansive list of characters.
Keaton, best known for playing the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman in Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) made a comeback to the superhero business back in 2017 when he was cast as Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming. His portrayal of the supervillain garnered critical acclaim for his impeccable acting performance and a grounded origin story. Since then, fans have been waiting for the Vulture’s return. Michael Keaton appeared for a brief scene in the first trailer for Morbius.
With Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Electro, and Kraven the Hunter already set to appear in the Spider-Man sequel, Keaton’s Vulture almost wraps up the premise for the Sinister Six for which fans have been waiting for far too long now. Also, Vulture’s decision to not reveal Spider-Man’s secret identity to Mac Gargan in Homecoming‘s post-credit scene was left unresolved.
Apart from playing the role of Vulture in the MCU, Keaton has also been confirmed to appear as Batman in Andy Muschietti’s The Flash as the movie will explore DC’s multiverse. With two big roles at hand, Michael Keaton has surely made a thumping comeback to the superhero biz with style.
