Spider-Man: Homecoming featured the live-action debut of a Spidey foe we’d yet to see hit the big screen: Vulture. The Vulture, as played by Michael Keaton, is regarded as one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s best antagonists, with a twist that no one saw coming. Since Homecoming, fans have been eager to see Keaton return to the MCU as Adrian Toomes. And well, following a brief appearance in both Morbius trailers, we’re just wondering where he’s going to end up next.
Keaton recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he revealed something he probably wasn’t supposed to. Joining the likes of Alfred Molina and Jaimie Foxx, it’s becoming a trend amongst veteran actors who’ve played Spider-Man foes to disregard their Non-Disclosure Agreements. “I’m shooting tomorrow. I’m shooting some Vulture stuff.”
The biggest question here is, if Keaton is indeed shooting scenes for the Vulture, what is he shooting them for? He may be filming additional photography for Morbius, possibly a post-credit stinger to further connect these worlds, potentially pairing the MCU sinister six together. Or the other option could be that he is filming something for Spider-Man: No Way Home. It feels much too late to add in him a larger capacity here, but it could be yet another post-credit scene for an upcoming Marvel project.
We might just have to wait and see where Adrian Toomes pops up next, whether it be in the MCU or the weird amalgam universe Sony seems to be shaping up over there.
Morbius is currently set to release in theaters on Jan. 28th, 2022 exclusively in theaters.
