With Spider-Man: Homecoming all but a month away, promotion is in full swing for the upcoming film. Yet, despite all the trailers presenting plenty of footage, especially of Michael Keaton as the Vulture, there’s been one character we haven’t seen much of: The Shocker.
It was confirmed a while back that the Shocker, a classic Spider-Man villain, would be appearing in the movie. However, there’s been barely any mention of him one way or the other.
Now, by way of a Hasbro toy ad, the Shocker has been revealed. We finally see, or at least have a sense, as to what the shocking villain will look like in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Sporting the classic yellow and black colors of the Shocker’s traditional outfit, the new costume diverges completely from the original design in every other respect. The Shocker wore an outfit that resembled a crazy quilt in the comics, and while that might not translate on screen, this new iteration of the Shocker, with funky goggles and giant metal boots, seems like a yellow and black combination of Iron Man and a soldier from Hydra.
We’ll have to wait to wait and see how the costume works once Spider-Man: Homecoming is released; or if it even looks the same in the final cut.
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Homecoming open on July 7. A co-production of Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures, the franchise reboot stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Jon Favreau, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Tyne Daly, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.
