Spider-Man Homecoming Press Kit Reveals Prowler, Scorpion, and Jennifer Connelly

Official press kits for Spider-Man Homecoming have been released and are full of spoilers for the upcoming Spider-Man film. In it are villains Prowler, Scorpion, and two Shockers. Also, Jennifer Connelly is playing Karen/Suit Lady (more on that in a minute.)

From Comicbookmovie.com:


Prowler first appears in Amazing Spider-Man #78 Scorpion first appears in Amazing Spider-Man #20 (not a cheap purchase), and Shocker first appears in Amazing Spider-Man #46. This will be the first on-screen appearance for the three villains.

With Spider-Man: Homecoming less than two weeks out, Sony Pictures has issued the official cast list, revealing the additions of both Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Connelly (Hulk) to the cast. Paltrow will be reprising her role as Pepper Potts for the first time since 2013’s Iron Man 3 while Connelly returns to the world of superheroes as a character named “Karen/Suit Lady,” who will apparently be the voice of the A.I. in Peter Parker’s fancy new Stark Industries suit, likely ruling out a live-action appearance for the Academy Award-winner.

The cast list also confirms the true identities of several cast members and reveals two more potential Marvel villains in Aaron Davis, a.k.a. the Prowler, played by Donald Glover (Atlanta), and Mac Gargan a.k.a. the Scorpion, played by Michael Mando (Orphan Black). We also have confirmation that there will indeed be two Shockers: the Herman Schultz version, played by Bokeem Woodbine (Fargo), and the Jackson Brice iteration, played by Logan Marshall-Green (Devil).

Angourie Rice is playing Betty Brant and Garcelle Beauvais (Flight) is listed as Doris Toomes, likely suggesting she’s the Vulture’s wife (or ex-wife) and quite possibly, also confirming the identity of another key cast member.

Stan Lee will cameo as a character named Gary, and Chris Evans will cameo as Captain America, although it’s uncertain whether we’ll see him outside of the disciplinary videos playing at Peter Parker’s school.

    still just cindy and not cindy moon huh

  2. agentpoyo says:

    Dibs on Jennifer Connolly. That’s far down the list, I’m willing to bet it’s such a small part/role if we even see her.

  3. Drew Arnold says:

    Per Screenrant, Jennifery Connely rumor has been debunked. Not sure about the others but she’s married to Paul Bettany so it makes sense she would have a cameo.

    • agentpoyo says:

      Yup.. happens all the time. Paul Bettany is such a lucky man… these are the type of roles where they stopped by to see their spouse or friend and get the quickie part while they’re shooting some scenes.

  4. Shines says:

    The Tinkerer is in the film as well, they’ve really loaded it up with villains. Tinkerer first appearance is in Amazing Spider-Man #2. Good luck. Congrats if you already have one.

  5. Shines says:

    Btw, Mattel released a Spiderman Homecoming Hot Wheels series a couple weeks ago, with Prowler, Scorpion, & Vulture cars.

  6. OC_Guy says:

    Very cool! Have had solid VF’s of #20 and #78 for close to twenty years now…plus a reading copy of #20 (about a VG-) I think I paid $15 ten years back….Might have to sell that one.

  7. Wyatt says:

    keep in mind prowler is not hobie from silver age but rather aaron davis from vol 2 of spidey.

  8. Wyatt says:

    ultimate spidey vol 2 #1 to be exact for Aaron Davis. either of the pichelli variants might still be good pickups if people have not put 2 and 2 together on the actual first appearance of the character aaron davis and not just the original prowler hobie
