Birdman Becomes The Vulture In SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING
Michael Keaton really has become the Birdman. The actor has re-entered negotiations for the role of The Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming. He was in the frame for the role several weeks ago, but bailed due to money reasons. However the notoriously tight-fisted Marvel Studios must really want the former Batman for the movie which will see Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man team with Tom Holland’s young web-slinger.
It’s believed the money issues occurred once Downey came into the picture (the dude has a sweet Marvel Deal) but this seems to now have been resolved.
You can’t blame Keaton for wanting a payday – he’s starred in the acclaimed Birdman and Spotlight (and the forthcoming The Founder) but this is likely a nice little earner for him.
Congratulations Marvel – you’ve got me for this one!
