The first trailer and international trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming were both quite revealing. In fact, they may have been more revealing than we think. Michael Keaton's Vulture took the center stage of the trailers as he made clear that he would hurt Peter and the ones he loves if Peter was to keep engaging him. The real question is: What is Adrian Toomes's motive? Let's take a look, shall we?
'Spider-Man: The Animated Series'
The interesting part of the video above is the fact that we see Norman Osborne scold Toomes for his useless research in reversing the aging cycle. Osborne claims that the research is wasted money for Oscorp. Toomes then shows just what his innovative technology can do, though he uses it for crime. Toomes then has a run-in with #SpiderMan and the rest is history.
That said, this isn't the only time we have seen Toomes partnered up with Oscorp. In The Spectacular Spider-Man series we also see that Toomes has a problem involving working with Oscorp. So, it's quite logical to think that perhaps Toomes's life of crime will be kickstarted from a falling out with Oscorp. After all, this would provide Marvel with the perfect chance to integrate the tech giant into the #MCU.
Strictly based on the trailer, it appears Vulture has developed some sort of superhero gang. This gang includes the villains of Shocker, The Tinkerer (pictured above), and Donald Glover's unknown character (pictured above). At first glance it seems that these individuals would have nothing in common with each other. Turns out that they may actually have a lot in common. Shocker and The Tinkerer (like Toomes) had a gift for inventing but chose to use it for criminal gains.
Donald Glover's character is still unknown, but I believe that he will be playing The Prowler. The Prowler is yet another villain who grew up brilliant. Actually, he specialized in design and invention. Have you connected the dots yet? All four of these villains are tech geniuses of some sort, which make for a great gang to take down Spider-Man.
I'm going to take this a step further and suggest that all of these individuals have been cast out by Oscorp or other tech giants. This would help further stimulate a bond between these individuals to work towards a common goal. Pretty logical don't you think? What if I toward you that we may have already seen these criminals working together before they gain access to their tech?
The scene pictured above appears to be a simple robbery thrown in for comedic purposes in the trailer. What if these individuals are actually our main villains of the film? Perhaps before they regain access to their Oscorp tech? There are four of them and they seem to fit the bill based on skin color and physical features. That said, there is a chance that these robbers are just being used to foreshadow the eventual villain team-up later in the film. Either way, I believe that Marvel is really trying to show us something in this scene.
No matter how you slice it, Oscorp will make it's way into the film in some way. I'm willing to believe that it will, in fact, have a large role in the creation of the film's villains. Not to mention, this would really help with the set up of the Sinister Six in the MCU. I guess we will just have to wait and see.
