Promotional material offers new glimpse at Shocker in Spider-Man: Homecoming

Did some call an electrician? Because I've got some shocking news for you. Eh, first one was better.

Anyway, when it comes to the new solo SPIDER-MAN flick  we’ve gotten some pretty good looks at Spidey’s (Tom Holland) new duds, and Vulture’s (Michael Keaton)…flying duds, I wanna say. But there’s one major villain who still remains in the shadows – Shocker (Bokeem Woodbine). If you’ve gone and skipped ahead of me, then you know this is no longer the case

Thanks to an Instagram user covering a special section at this year’s Toy Fair (check out our own coverage on our Twitter page!) we now have a much better look at what the electric villain may look like via some promotional material for the upcoming toy line.


3/4: New York Toy Fair 2017 was a blast! Thanks to @firstordertransmissions and @makingstarwars, I was lucky enough to attend @Hasbro's off-site event today, and was blown away! This is Hasbro's best year for Toy Fair by far, and all of the Hasbro staff members were a class act! They held an amazing theater presentation talking about everything that they have in store for the next few months. We got sneak peeks at all sorts of toys including new 40th Anniversary Star Wars figures, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 figures, and of course, Spider-Man Homecoming figures! Once I got to the show floor, my jaw literally dropped to the floor when I saw how amazing all of these figures look, especially @TomHolland2013's 6" Marvel Legends Spidey figure with Peter's head. It looks exactly like Tom! When the event was over, Hasbro was kind enough to send everyone home with a gift bag with some toys including Star Wars Black Series Figures and Marvel Legends figures! I was fortunate enough to receive a Black Series Baze Malbus, and a new Marvel Legends Green Goblin! They look absolutely spectacular! Hasbro has really stepped up their game over the past few years, and I am so grateful to @firstordertransmissions and @makingstarwars for giving me the opportunity to attend this year! Thanks again Hasbro for making this an incredible Toy Fair! I can't wait to get my hands on all of the Star Wars 40th Anniversary figures, the Guardians Volume 2 figures, The Last Jedi figures, and of course, the Spider-Man Homecoming figures! #HasbroToyFair #NYTF2017 #GotGVol2 #SpiderManHomecoming

Now, this is for the toy line, but it’s not that different from set photos we’ve seen before. Back in August some set photos were released showing the character in similar garb to what we’re seeing here. In addition, the character is flashing some gauntlet-looking things in the international trailer too. So although there may some exaggerated, toy-exclusive features in the above image, this could be close to a “final form” we’d see in the movie. Maybe Vulture recruits him and gives him a proper suit. Or he find it in a dumpster. Either or.

No matter what, I don’t think Shocker is going to play a huge role in this movie. Seeing from afar the cavalcade of villains Sony bogged their previous films down with probably informed Marvel not to do the same thing, so if Shocker shows up he may just be some sort of goon-for-hire role to Vulture’s main baddie. Still, the character looks badass...shockingly so, I must say. Nope, still terrible.
