Spider-Man 4: Insider Report Claims Scorpion & Shocker As Villains

If earlier iterations of Spider-Man films have seemed completely packed with bad guys and supervillains, MCU’s 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming must be feeling quite overstuffed, with Vulture (Michael Keaton), being backed up by more than one bad guys— in fact, we have more than five other villains having stayed hidden in the background in the movie.

But who are these villains, and what does their debut mean for future MCU movies?

Spider-Man 4: A New Report Suggests Michael Mando and Bokeem Woodbine are in talks to return as Scorpion and Shocker respectively


Homecoming also saw The Prowler, aka Aaron Davis — portrayed by Donald Glover in the film. Davis is a low-level thief, but one with an important nephew – Miles Morales. However, Marvel Boss Kevin Feige has stated that Miles does not exist in the MCU.

Homecoming two Shockers, and not one. Herman Schultz — one of them — holds that title in the comics, debuting in Amazing Spider-Man No. 46 (1967).

However, his most recent appearances in the Superior Foes of Spider-Man series placed him in charge of the underworld of New York after he had managed to defeat the Punisher. In Homecoming, he is portrayed by Bokeem Woodbine, becoming the Shocker after the first one is killed by Keaton’s Vulture.

Hausermann Carroll, the producer of Homecoming, has stated that Adrian Toomes “has a bone to pick” with MCU star Tony Stark, who had made a brand new entity of government, which is believed to be iconic Marvel Comics’ Damage Control Company, whose duty is to clean up after all of the chaos during these battles. The same report also revealed that Herman Schultz (Bookeem Woodbine) and Tinkerer (Michael Chernus), “scavenged some alien artifacts and stolen advanced tech” to make their own lethal weapons.

While these reports have been confirmed yet, they seem to fall in line with all earlier rumors with incoming set photos, but nothing concrete is being made official quite as of now.

However, after Vulture, Scorpion, and Shocker’s debut in Homecoming, it will just be a matter of time till they debut in the MCU.
