The news of Michael Keaton potentially starring in Spider-Man: Homecoming comes via Variety, but they do add that it is very early days in terms of negotiations. If he does join the project, which will start shooting later this year for a 2017 release, he will join the already cast Tom Holland, who will play Peter Parker/ Spider-Man, and Marisa Tomei as Aunt May. Of course, Keaton played opposite in the other newspaper movie that he appeared in a few years back, the Ron Howard directed The Paper.

We revealed on earlier today that the film would be officially titled Spider-Man: Homecoming; Holland himself informed a packed audience at CinemaCon, and unveiled a scene from this month’s Captain America: Civil War. This scene was described as follows:

In the clip, Parker comes home to find Tony sitting on the couch with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei). Parker is surprised to see the famous billionaire playboy superhero sitting in living room and can only nod as Tony winks at him, clearly aware of his secret identity. Helping hide that secret from May (about whom Tony jokes, “It’s hard to believe she’s anyone’s aunt”), Stark pretends that Peter applied for a special program with Stark Industries and has been selected.
