‘Spider-Man:Homecoming’ Screenwriters Explain The Vulture Character
Spider-Man: Homecoming saw a great opening weekend, and the trend will likely continue. Although the entire cast was outstanding in the film, Michael Keaton’s performance of the Vulture was out of bounds. The screenwriters for the film, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein have recently opened up about the Vulture character, with some awesome insight.
I think our intention was always to keep him a not-terrible guy, what I can never relate to or even root against is the mustache-twirly villain [where it’s unclear] why they’re evil, and they’re just evil for evil’s sake.
Daley went on about the stakes that Peter Parker, and Adrian Toomes( The Vulture) were playing for.
The biggest challenge, is finding equal levels of stakes in both of those worlds, because obviously the stakes of high school are inherently lower than life-or-death stakes of being a superhero and potentially dying.
Goldstein elaborated on the mega plot twist, that Toomes was his date’s Father.
We found a way to combine those two plot threads and in a way that we hope pays off. You think you’re in the high school movie story, and then you’re shocked to find out this relationship.
Goldstein also talked about making the Vulture something more than just a regular villain for Peter.
We wanted to make it to personal to Peter. This is a guy whose ambitions are not world domination, they’re fairly small and limited. So how do we make it mean something more to Peter than just being a random bad guy?
There was a lot of work that went into the development of this character, and it showed. If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure to go check out Spider-Man: Homecoming in theaters now!
