As Spider-Man: Homecoming gets closer and closer to its theatrical release, more details about the movie’s plotline — and specifically, its villains — have gradually started to surface. At this point, we know that Tom Holland‘s Spidey will be facing off against more than one bad guy in the upcoming hero flick. But who exactly will he be battling against?

From The Vulture as the primary antagonist to an appearance from The Tinkerer, it looks like the young web-slinger will have his work cut out for him. Below, check out a closer look at all the villains rumored to be showing up in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

After months of rumors, Marvel confirmed at this summer’s Comic-Con that Vulture will be appearing in the upcoming Spider-Man flick. Michael Keaton is set to play the villainous character, who made his comic book debut in 1963’s The Amazing Spider-Man #2.

As comic fans know, Vulture was the second super villain who Spider-Man battled in the comic books, following his predecessor, the Chameleon. The character, originally known as Adrian Toomes, was a scientist who lost his job and decided to use his own project (a set of hi-tech wings that give its wearer the abilities of strength and flight) to seek revenge on his boss.

Per USA Today, Keaton’s version of Adrian Toomes/The Vulture will be an “everyman”-type villain and the primary antagonist of the movie. After he loses business at the hands of a new government organization founded by A-list businessman Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Toomes is left angered and “sort of becomes the dark Tony Stark.” He teams with a crew of villains (listed below!) to steal advanced tech and put together amazing weaponry to sell to other criminals.
