Keaton to play bird of a dif­fer­ent feather

Baltimore Sun - - ENTERTAINMENT - — Associated Press

Michael Keaton is re­turn­ing to his su­per­hero roots, this time as a vil­lain, in next year’s Spi­der-Man re­boot.

Mar­vel Stu­dios Pres­i­dent Kevin Feige con­firmed in an in­ter­view with the Toronto Sun that Keaton will play the Vul­ture in “Spi­der-Man: Home­com­ing.”

Keaton played the ti­tle char­ac­ter in the 1989 ver­sion of “Bat­man” and its 1992 se­quel, “Bat­man Re­turns.” He was also nom­i­nated for an Os­car for his turn as an ac­tor dogged by his days play­ing a su­per­hero in 2014’s “Bird­man.”

“Spi­der-Man: Home­com­ing” will be the first film in the fran­chise to be pro­duced by Mar­vel Stu­dios. It stars Tom Hol­land as the web slinger and is set for re­lease in July.
