A few weeks ago came an apparent leaked rumored cast & character list for Marvel and Sony’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” project, a list that seemed to indicate actress Angourie Rice would play Betty Brant and Bokeem Woodbine was set as the villain The Shocker.
Now some new photos have gone online from the Atlanta set of the superhero film and seem to showcase a character with a costume that matches that of The Shocker in the comics. The Shocker, a.k.a. Herman Schultz, was a high school dropout and brilliant engineer who became a master thief and uses two gauntlets to emit high-energy blasts.
It’s unclear if that’s Bokeem Woodbine under the costume, or more likely a stunt performer. Either way, The Shocker will be a minor villain at best in the film with Michael Keaton’s The Vulture set to be the main antagonist of the project. Jon Watts helms the film which stars Tom Holland as Spider-Man and will open in July next year.
