We had heard that talks had fallen through, but now it's being reported that former Batman Michael Keaton is back in Spidey's web, and has entered final negotiations to play the mysterious baddie...



You can start making Birdman jokes again. After initially passing on the role, THR reports that Michael Keaton (Batman, Beetlejuice, The Other Guys) is back in final talks to play the villain in Marvel and Sony's solo Spidey reboot, Spider-Man: Homecoming. Apparently the studios approached several other actors before ultimately returning to Keaton - presumably with a better offer.

There's still no official word on the character he'd portray, but The Vulture is strongly rumored.

Spider-Man: Homecoming will star Tom Holland in the title role, along with Marisa Tomei as unt May, Zendaya as the still unnamed female lead, Tony Revolori, Laura Harrier (also unknown characters) and Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man.
