More quotes keep coming out from Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige as he does press for “Spider-Man: Homecoming”. Today most of the comments are about some of the supporting character inclusions and characters that haven’t been adapted as yet.
First up, don’t expect Norman and Harry Osborn to be a part of the new “Spider-Man” films as Feige says they’re not that keen on retreading old ground. He tells HeyUGuys:
“What’s fun about this is it’s the first time Spider-Man is in the MCU. And the first time he’s played by an actor who is the age, essentially, Spidey was in the comics for so long. And, as Michael Keaton does with the Vulture, we get to explore villains we haven’t seen before.
Spidey has an amazing rogues gallery, so at some point I think it might be interesting to revisit some of the characters we’ve seen in films before, but right now, we think there are a lot of new ones we haven’t played with yet.”
In the same interview he was asked if the MCU would ever introduce fan favorite character Captain Britain to which he said:
“We have discussed it. There are a lot of actors that come in and ask about that part, so we’ll have to see.”
One of the roles in ‘Homecoming’ is Aaron Davis, aka The Prowler, played by “Community” and “Atlanta” alum Donald Glover. In the comics, Davis is the uncle of Miles Morales who is one of the more recent incarnations of Spider-Man.
Does this mean Miles Morales is somewhere in the MCU? According to Feige yes he is. He tells Screencrush:
“I think Miles is a big part of the animated movie that Sony’s making. But where we go…we definitely want you to go ‘[Miles] is there. He’s there somewhere.'”
One of the other villains in ‘Homecoming’ is Mac Gargan, aka The Scorpion, played by Michael Mando. Splash Report has posted a rumor today suggesting the actor could reprise the role in the “Silver and Black” movie at Sony Pictures.
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” opens in cinemas next week, check out four new clips from the film below.
