You wouldn't necessarily expect #MichaelKeaton, who recently starred in two Academy Award winners for Best Picture — Birdman and Spotlight — to necessarily be the kind of actor to star in a #Marvel movie. While #superhero movies have their share of incredible talent, Keaton just seemed to be staying away from bigger blockbusters.
Yet it looks like his Batman past has caught up with him, because he's starring as the classic #comicbook villain Vulture in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming, which features #TomHolland as our favorite web-slinger. In an interview centered around his latest movie, the McDonald's founder biopic aptly titled The Founder, Keaton revealed he very much enjoyed being on the set of the new #SpiderMan.
Marvel Is 'One Well-Oiled Machine'
At the scale the Marvel movies have reached today, it wouldn't be surprising to hear newcomers feel a little lost — but according to Keaton, everything perfectly flows:
"I have thought about the way things have changed, because I just did Spider-Man, and Marvel? That is one well-oiled machine. It is remarkable how they have got that whole thing covered in a really qualitative way."
Asked about what impressed him the most, the actor marveled at the efficiency of the production:
"Just how efficient it is, in the best sense, and how it operates on a practical level. How organized they are about what they make and how conscientious they are about what they have. They've got really wonderful actors for one thing, but I guess that has always been the case. [...] They really get that script is important, and they really protect their lore and that culture and they see the enormity of it, on a capitalistic level."

With the enormity of Infinity War coming up, it's good to hear Marvel has the big superhero picture down pat.
And in case we weren't fully convinced yet that Tom Holland would be one amazing #PeterParker, he was full of praise for his young co-star, saying Holland was "a great kid." One more reason to look forward to Homecoming!
