A shocking new villain appears in this Spider-Man: Homecoming set photo

09.06.2016

Someone took some photos around the SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING set that you could say are—ahem—shocking.

Alright now that you’ve overcome your fit of riotous laughter, I can now report with your full attention that the new Spidey flick may have a third villain set to try and ruin the young hero’s life. A photo posted on Twitter shows a person dressed in yellow who may very well be the famed villain, The Shocker. As well, the guy has some killer silver gauntlet-ish things on, which he probably uses for all his shocking needs.

Take a look!

This could be the role being played by Bokeem Woodbine, and if Shocker does play a part in the new flick he would be the third villain on top of Vulture (Michael Keaton, probably) and The Tinkerer (Michael Chernus). I don’t know about you but a bunch of red flags are popping up in my head.

Some SPIDER-MAN movies (namely, SPIDER-MAN 3 and AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2) have suffered for using too many villains. Not only have they used too many villains, but it seems that three may be the unlucky number. SPIDER-MAN 3 had Venom, Sandman and New Goblin, while AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 had Electro, Rhino and Green Goblin.

There’s really no telling how and why Shocker is showing up HOMECOMING. He could have a simple cameo, acting as beat-down fodder for Spidey, or maybe he’s being filmed for an after-credits scene. But if fans want one thing from these new movies is a fresh start for the Wall Crawler, and having three villains probably won’t do anything but bring up painful memories. I know Marvel seems bullet proof right now, but a third villain could prove a fatal shot if not done right. Plus, am I the only one who thinks Shocker's costume makes him look like a Sleestack from LAND OF THE LOST?

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING swings into theaters July 7, 2017 starring Tom Holland, Zendaya, Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr. and Michael Chernus.

If Sony were behind this movie then I would be worried. As its Marvel's baby I have no issue that the film will work. They just seem to know exactly what they're doing.

Seriously...after Civil War (not that it was the first time)...is there anyone not prepared to give Marvel the benefit of the doubt when it comes to chucking characters at a movie?

My thoughts exactly. I was like wow there's a shit load of characters in this film, I'm interested in seeing how this turns out cause we all know what happens when too many characters are put together in one movie. Its usually not good but Marvel knocked it out of the park with Civil War. So yea, Im VERY curious how this movie turns out. Its almost like Marvel is taking down the infamous "3 villain" curse from Spidey and showing everyone (Sony) how its done. LoL

Shocker is an awesome spidey villain. He and Scorpion and a re-done Venom are the three villains I kept hoping to see in the Amazing Spider-Man films, so this little surprise makes me pretty happy. Honestly, I don't think the costume looms particularly good in the photos, but hey these are low quality set pics so I get that it'll likely look better on the big screen. As for crowding in too many villains, I'm not worried. Tinkerer isn't a physical threat level villain and I'm not sure he's going

If you look at the Nolan Batman films, they all had multiple villains, heck TDK had Joker, Two-Face, Marconi and a cameo from Scarecrow, not to mention thugs like Gamble and Han. It's really not about how many villains you put in, its about how smart your writers are and how they balance them.

I know a lot of people criticize Marvel for this, and rightly so, but Marvel moves are rarely ever about the villains. And I expect the same with this new Spider-Man. Back in the Raimi days we had villains that were interesting and complex (which is why Sipder-Man 3 was such a letdown, sure Sandman could've been interesting, but thrown in with Hobgoblin and Venom, you wouldn't know it). I don't know a lot about any of these guys, but we've met Peter Parker, and we know his Uncle Ben is already

I don't know a lot about any of these guys, but we've met Peter Parker, and we know his Uncle Ben is already dead. He's already been fighting crime in New York City. The Shocker sounds like a pretty minor villain, too. So here's hoping they keep the story focused where it belongs, on how these various villians affect Peter Parker.

The shocker? Really? Does he go around molesting girls? Jokes aside, the costume is horrible. Whoever is designing these things need to get fired

Looks perfect!!

Gotta love Shocker. He is like a joke villain, I think Spidey defeats him easier than anyone else in the comics and he keeps coming back thinking he can beat Spidey.

In the cartoon he was horrible, always felt like he was a plug villain just there to get beaten up

I remember, vaguely, Kevin Feige commenting on there being a villain at the beginning of Spider-Man comics that he easily defeats before heading into the main story. I can see that being the case here. I doubt Marvel would have another villain who uses electricity star as a main or even significant secondary villain following the crappy Electro. Still looking forward to Keaton as Vulture.

Guardians of the Galaxy had Ronan, Nebula, Thanos and Korath. The important thing is the script: if Homecoming as a clear storyline and doesn't lose itself in many different plots, it will be good. If the film tries to give equal screen time to each of its villains, then it will be trouble.

Wow, I've been waiting to see Shocker on the big screen for a long time.

I think this writer might be reading too much into one set photo. I mean, The Winter Soldier had more than one villain, Batroc appears at the beginning of the movie in a throwaway fight scene, only to show up again later with information related to the conspiracy.

Not saying it will play out the exact same. But it's entirely possible that Shocker shows up at the beginning to introduce us to Spiderman in an opening fight sequence of something. And who knows, maybe he's the guy that leads

We have a character named The Tinkerer who supplies weapons to supervillains. It makes sense to actually have several supervillains show up in the movie. Also not all superhero movies with multiple villains are bad. Batman Begins had Mr. Zsasz as a minor villain, and Scarecrow pops up in The Dark Knight Returns. Let's also not forget Batroc The Leper... I mean The Leaper in Winter Soldier. It's likely that Shocker won't have that much screen time in the movie, or maybe he'll get killed early on

The villain is the most important thing to succeed in a movie

that's why I so disappointed by Suicide Squad (cause the villains were lame and looked they came straight from Gods of Egypt...).
I prefer one very charismatic villain than a sum of a few ones. the author gave good exemples of movies who suffered from that.

Just want to see Keaton in his vulture outfit already. And I would love to see a scene where Iron Man, and Vulture go head to head with one another, but I guess that would take too much away from Spider-Man.

Didn't expect to see him, or at least three villains in Marvels take on Spidey.
I'm liking the retrofitted Nintendo power gloves

Not too bad, though a bit reminiscent of the basic layout Crossbones wore at the beginning of Civil War.
Wasn't expecting Shocker to have his quilted costume but this one looks kind of generic.
