Michael Keaton Reportedly Exits ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Talks

Apr 21, 2016

Michael Keaton had been said to be wanted for an unnamed villain role in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but has reportedly exited those early talks according to Deadline.

Michael Keaton, who was being courted to play the villain in the pic, has fallen out of early talks and won’t be a part of the project. That had been a juicy idea as it would have put the onetime Batman star in a Spidey movie, but we’re told this is not happening and the search continues to fill the role.

Robert Downey Jr. recently just joined the film as Tony Stark and the project will now seek another another actor to take the role meant for Keaton. The Vulture had been linked as one of the multiple villains in the film, but we have no idea if that was indeed the part Michael was in talks for.

Casting is ramping-up so we should be hearing these new actors soon.
