According to rumors outside of Cinema Con, iconic Spiderman villain, “The Vulture” is supposed to be the antagonist in the upcoming ‘Spiderman’ reboot starring Tom Holland.
Spiderman is set to make his first MCU appearance in Captain America: Civil War, set to be released on May 6th.
According to Comicbook.com, The Vulture rumor comes from Birth.Movies.Death.com, and claims that someone with inside information on the production of the next Spider-Man let slip that the airborne rogue will appear in the reboot, though how large his role will be remains unclear:
“The Vulture will be in this movie. Will he be the main baddie? Will he be a villain Spidey has to defeat in an opening scene? I don’t know, although old rumors that passed by my ears indicated a non-main villain role for the old bird.”
It also seems to be almost confirmed the title of the first official Spiderman reboot will be ‘Spider-man Homecoming’, which according to the same sources may be official by the end of Sony’s CinemaCon today.
