A first look at Michael Chernus as Tinkerer in Spider-Man: Homecoming

17 May

Spider-Man: Homecoming is gonna be released soon, and more snippets have been released – including a new picture of Michael Chernus as Phineas Mason/Tinkerer, the right hand-man of Michael Keaton’s Adrian Toomes/Vulture.

The new picture, sourced from the newest edition of Empire Magazine, shows Tinkerer in a modern look. Whereas in the comics Tinkerer is depicted as a frail, bespectacled old man, Chernus’s Tinkerer is shown in blue overalls and protective gear.

Homecoming’s premise focuses on Vulture’s revenge on Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) for bringing his salvaging company out of business. In his quest, Vulture teams up with Tinkerer, a genius engineer and one of the few people who can fix and upgrade Vulture’s flight suit.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is out July 6 in Australia.
