Michael Keaton's Vulture Will Have A Grudge On Tony Stark

Not much is known about Michael Keaton's version of the Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but based on the trailer, we could already deduce that he is one scary guy. Good thing is, more info has now been released on his character, and it seems that he'll be holding a grudge against Tony Stark.

Talking to USA Today, Keaton talks about his character and how he sees himself as the victim of the story. He says, "Some people see themselves as victims — he sees himself a little bit like that… He probably would have a strong argument that he never got a fair shot — a lot of ‘Why not me? Where's mine?' "

As it turns out, the Vulture a.k.a. Adrian Toomes, is an owner of an NYC salvaging company who was in charge of cleaning up after the Chitauri Invasion from the first movie. Toomes then used this opportunity to get his hands on some alien tech which was then turned into weapons by the Tinkerer (Michael Chernus) and sold to criminals.

The problem with Stark happens when Toomes' operation is taken over by Stark's company — meaning that he won't get any more access of alien tech to sell. I'm guessing that's where Keaton's "Where's mine?" statement fits into the Vulture's character.

I actually like how this is harkening back to the first Avengers movie, and we're seeing how other people are getting affected by the events several years later. This deal that Sony has with Marvel is doing a lot of good for the characters in the MCU, and fans are just happy to see the two studios coming to agreement. There's a benefit to sharing your toys, 20th Century Fox.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is set for a release on July 7.
