With Michael Keaton officially signed on to play the villain, in the upcoming 2017 feature film “Spider-Man Homecoming”. I figured id throw in a few ideas, of what I would like to see from the main antagonist Adrian Toomes aka The Vulture. Of course, none of us truly know it will indeed be him. But I think its a safe bet, and you can take that to the bank and cash it in. Where should Toomes fit into the story itself?
Well, he should be an Inhuman that comes into contact with the Terrigen Mist, shortly after the arc began in Agents Of Shield. Having his ability’s manifest sort of how a Mutants would. To tie in the Civil War arc, as well as bringing in Kingpin into the picture. Fisk should have his hands in just about everything, it would be interesting to make Toomes his weapons Manufacturer. Dealing with people behind the scenes, that way the explanation would only have to be briefly put in. And Keaton wouldn’t have to make any sort of cameos in shows later. Although who wouldn’t get behind that?!?!? 😉
I think Toomes should be mysterious, he needs to have a reputation before hand of a figure without flaws. This idea, that you have to give villains a back story of pain and suffering. To me is sort of not necessary, and can be retconed entirely for this film in particular. Don’t make his wings mechanical in nature, give him actual fucking wings man!!! GIVE IT SOME BALLS!!!! His only problem, would be his constant criticism of his appearance. That could bring in a brief period of the audience potentially getting behind him. Because you need to have at least a percentage of compassion. Toomes should have zero connections, his only ally and friend is Wilson Fisk. They watch each others back, and protect one another from outside interference.
Where does Iron Man come into this? Well, Tony should be living with Rhodes. Continuing to work on his rehab, which seems to be devolving and becoming less effective. Stark doesn’t understand why the prosthesis isn’t working, and he rely’s on the genius of Peter Parker to construct a new technology. That allows people to synthetically alter their spine functionality, this not only comes out of the MIT fundraiser he put into himself. But it brings forth a new type of healing, and it all is derived from Peter’s immune system. Together, they are able to do things with that DNA that most scientist only dream of. It gives people a second chance at living normal, and finally gives Stark a way at redemption.
Peter should casually hack into by mistake, and discover what Toomes and Fisk are doing behind the vale of secrecy. Being that he is photographer, he is able to get inside places with a press pass that no one could. Peter should actually be the Edward Snowden of the MCU quite frankly, he should be the one to expose not only the Kingpins activity’s, but also Government files that people on the other side would be dying to get their hands on. Peter should be a force to be reckoned with physically, as well as mentally superior to most people except for Stark and Banner. Which they should be equals in those terms, Peter lives the every day life of a young up and coming Teenager. But he is something far greater, and only a few can really see it. Marvel should keep Peter’s identity anonymous to virtually everyone. If people need to know, and the situation becomes dire. Then he can go ahead and reveal it, but then and only then should he do so. Let’s keep this sacred, at least for the time being.
