The actor is in early talks to pick up a role.

There have been a lot of rumors about casting in Marvel and Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming movie, and it looks like they may have just increased the amazingness of the movie even more. There have been some rumors circulating online that none other than Michael Keaton will join as the villain in the film. This news comes from Variety, who has credibly sources, and they say that the actor is in early talks to join the Jon Watts film. If he is cast in the role, he will join an all-star cast of Tom Holland as Spider-Man, Maria Tomei as Aunt May, and Zendaya in a mystery role.

Many people are excited at the prospect of seeing Keaton in any film, but a superhero film seems to be even more exciting. There aren't any definitive answers about who the next Spider Man villain will be. There were some rumors swirling a few weeks ago that the villain would be Vulture, but it seems unlikely. After he starred in Birdman, it would be pretty cool to see Keaton in the role, but it is doubtful that would actually happen.

The film will focus on a teenage Peter Parker and his high school days. Holland gave a better description of the film at CinemaCon this past week:

"It really is a homecoming for the character, because throughout the story Peter [Parker] is trying to find his true identity, and where he really belongs in this world."

Of course, there won't be any other plot details revealed anytime soon, as they are keeping the movie under lock and key. However, the film is set ot be released in July 2017.
