The new 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' villain will leave you gobsmacked

The neighborhood just got a little less friendly.

The rumours are true: Perennial sad-sack super villain the Shocker will appear in the upcoming "Spider-Man: Homecoming".

Shocker, who was previously best known for making his costume out of a couch, will be played by Bokeem Woodbine, known for his turn in the second season of Fargo. The villain's role in the flick was outted by on-set pictures that are now floating around Twitter.

Woodbine joins Michael Keaton as the Vulture and Michael Chernus as the Tinkerer. Robert Downey Jr. is back in his Stark tech best as Iron Man for the film, with Tom Holland playing our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man.

The movie follows Spidey after his appearance in "Captain America: Civil War," and finally brings the wall crawler into the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe fold.

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" will hit theaters on July 7, 2017. Hang in there, guys. It's a long wait for me too.
