Back in June, we came across a report that suggested Fargo and Total Recall star Bokeem Woodbine has taken on a role in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and it's a villainous one. Now, it seems that we know what character he's playing in the Jon Watts flick. Before heading into the details, I would like to advise you to take it with A GRAIN OF SALT, since it's nothing more than a rumor at this point.
According to the Facebook page Marvel Cinematic Universe, Bokeem Woodbine will portray Herman Schultz, aka the Shocker, in Spider-Man: Homecoming. The page claims to have exclusively learned about it from their sources. Before anyone gets confused, let me clarify that it isn't an official page run by Marvel Studios.
This isn't the first report that has surfaced on web about Woodbine's role in the July 7, 2017 release. A while ago, Marvelous Realm dropped a scoop about his character, also saying that the 43-year-old actor is playing the Shocker in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
We have to keep in mind that neither the Facebook page nor the website is known for coming up with exclusive reveals. However, if they have indeed learned about it from their separate sources, there might be some truth behind it.
One thing is for sure, even if Bokeem Woodbine is indeed portraying the character created by Stan Lee back in 1967, he won't be anything more than a secondary antagonist in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
The movie's main villain has already been confirmed and it's the Vulture. Michael Keaton is reportedly playing the supervillain.
Logan Marshall-Green is apparently also playing a baddie in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe installment. We haven't come across any more specific details on his Spider-Man: Homecoming character.
Apart from Keaton, Marshall-Green, and Woodbine's characters, there may be yet another supervillain in the movie. The official Twitter page of Better Call Saul seemed to hint that Michael Mondo (who plays Nacho in the AMC series) will portray Cletus Kasady, aka Carnage, in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
