Michael Keaton is Back and This Time in Final Talks to be a Villain in SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

Within a week's time last month, actor Michael Keaton went from being in talks to reportedly be a villain in SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING to negotiations suddenly stalling out. Well, Keaton is back in Spider-Man headlines as he is reportedly in final talks for a villain role.

The Hollywood Reporter writes:

"[Sony and Marvel Studios]... moved on to other actors before returning to Keaton. Ultimately the producers returned to Keaton, the actor who once played Bruce Wayne/Batman and then poked fun of his own image of an actor living in the shadow of super hero movies with his Oscar-winning turn in Birdman."

Usually when an actor name falls out of favor for a role, the news cycle rarely comes back to the same name for the same role. In other words, Keaton must really want in now and if he is indeed to be Vulture as rumors claim he might be, it's a great fit. Although, the Tinkerer is now rumored and that could be the fit here, too.

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING begins filming at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta this summer with Robert Downey Jr. co-starring as Tony Stark / Iron Man. The movie releases on July 7, 2017.
