Michael Keaton repeats the role of Vulture again for a mysterious Marvel project. Earlier, Keaton debuted in the role of antagonist in Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2017. The actor was recently featured in the trailer for Morbius, providing a strong connection between the MCU and Sony’s Marvel universe. As it turns out, Keaton is now back at work filming more scenes as the iconic supervillain.
Tuesday evening, Michael Keaton told about his commitment to Morbius on Jimmy Kimmel live. He opened up about what it was like to cross over into a separate film universe and explains how confusing it was in the beginning when the filmmakers tried to explain to him how the stories would fit together. Apparently, the confusion showed in Keaton’s face.
“I was not supposed to say this, but when I did … these guys are so cool. I showed up at one of [Marvel projects] when I played Vulture, which was really a fun character, I have to say. They have to brief me and I see it in their eyes they say: ‘Uh, so you know when you did blah blah, and so your character [Adrian] Toomes came in and he did that thing, remember, for earlier than Spider-Man? ‘ And I say, “Good,” and I think, “I have no idea. I have no idea who is who or why or where or even where I am. And I see it in their eyes, and then they’re crazy about what they say, ‘You do not know what we’re talking about, do you?’ ‘
Michael Keaton says he’s quick to learn, so he was able to catch it pretty quickly. He then went on to reveal that he was preparing to record more scenes like Vulture, though he would not say what project this was for. Could this be for resumes related to Morbius, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness, or a completely different Marvel project? It’s hard to say, but in any case, more of Michael Keaton as Vulture is on the way Spider Man universe.
“I’m shooting tomorrow. Yeah, man, some Grib stuff.”
This is definitely good news for Marvel fans, as you can never really get too much of Michael Keaton. It’s also something Warner Bros. and DC are betting on as they bring the veteran actor back to repeat another popular role. He will be back as his incarnation of Batman from the Tim Burton movies in Flash, a film that similarly incorporates a multiverse into the story to bring in different versions of the same characters. A first look teaser gave us a little look at Keaton’s return in that role.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released on December 17, 2021, although there is no indication at this time that Keaton will appear in that film, although it is certainly possible. He will definitely be seen as Vulture in Morbius which follows a theatrical release on January 28, 2022. Fans can then anticipate Keaton’s return as Bruce Wayne when Lightning enters theaters November 4, 2022. This news comes to us from Jimmy Kimmel Live.
