They should adapt "Kraven's Last Hunt."

It will be interesting to see if they start re-using villains from the Sony films like Green Goblin, Dr Octopus, Venom, and Lizard, or if they do villains that haven't had screentime yet like Vulture, Mysterio, and Kraven. Or maybe they'll just jump right in and do Sinister Six since Spidey has such an extensive rogues gallery.

I don't like the Homecoming bit... but whatever. Marvel is making it soooooo they could call it shit in a bag the movie but I'll be there cuz it's Marvel's Spidey.

I don't mind the title. It fits with the high school theme as well as his literal homecoming to the MCU. Obviously something like The Amazing Spider-Man would be better but its been done and other variants on that title like Spectacular Spider-Man or whatever could be easily mistaken for a sequel to the Webb films.

Right but even so calling it The "fill in the blank" Spider-Man sounds similar and may confuse some of the audience. I can see why they went with something different.

Peter Parker is the Spectacular Spiderman in The Rise of the Sinister Six: Dr. Octopus, Electro, Kraven, Mysterio, Sandman, and The Vultlure.

Michael Keaton could be returning to the superhero universe — but this time, as a villain.

Sources tell Variety that Keaton is in early talks to play a villain in the Marvel and Sony co-production “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” starring Tom Holland as the latest Spidey.

Marvel and Sony had no comment on the casting.

For Keaton, it also marks a switch from DC Comics to Marvel. The Oscar nominee famously played the Caped Crusader in Tim Burton’s “Batman” in 1989, skyrocketing his career.

Marisa Tomei is currently set to play Aunt May, and Zendaya is also on board in a mystery role. The villain Keaton is being eyed to play is also being kept under wraps.

Jon Watts is directing the film from a script by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal are producing the movie, which focuses on a teenage Peter Parker’s high school days.

Plot details are still being heavily guarded.

Holland’s Spider-Man will first make an appearance in the upcoming “Captain American: Civil War” with a standalone pic bowing on July 7, 2017. Production is expected to start this summer.

Keaton was recently seen in “Birdman” and “Spotlight,” which both took home Oscars for best picture. Keaton also earned a best actor nomination for “Birdman.” He can next be seen in “The Founder” as McDonalds founder Ray Kroc.

Only titles left over from the older ones was Web of Spider-Man, Spectacular Spider-Man, and Sensational Spider-Man.

I don't think they'd ever use Superior Spider-Man for several reasons...

Oh I like the possibility of Keaton playing a villain. I wonder what part he may be up for. If the villain is Vulture I don't think I can see him in that role but I'm not sure who else he'd play.

Not likely. He's playing Gordon in Justice League.

And? Different universe. Surely both roles aren't meaty enough to conflict with each other scheduling-wise.

Name is stupid, but all the positive things are saying about him in the new Cap movie has me excited for this.

It's unexpected that you would be so ignorant of his Virtue (or vulture?)

Possible that WB wouldn't allow it.

I dunno.. kind of a double meaning (that it's sort of gone back into some control at Marvel)

Unless he is actually going to homecomin at school, I still think it is a dumb name.

Yup. The double meaning is obvious, doesn't make it less silly - makes it worse to me.
