First Look At Michael Chernus As The Tinkerer in ‘Spider-Man Homecoming’

Fans may have known that Phineas Mason/The Tinkerer will be a big part of Spider-Man: Homecoming and the first official image of the villain alongside The Vulture has been revealed in the new Empire Magazine.
Michael Chernus (Orange is the New Black) is The Tinkerer, described as Adrian Toomes’ sidekick and has links to the events of The Avengers when Damage Control arrives on the scene to take over the tech salvaging business from the debt-ridden future villain.

“That puts him in a pretty desperate situation,” explains Spider-Man: Homecoming co-producer Eric Carroll. “So with one of the trucks they’ve already loaded up, he and his crew, with the help of a character called The Tinkerer, start stealing more of this exotic tech – Chitauri, Dark Elf, and even some Stark stuff – to retro-fit and sell on the black market.”

In the comic books, the character has an almost superhuman gift of genius in engineering and is able to invent incredible gadgets from spare parts left lying around.

Tom Holland’s Peter Parker is having trouble holding back on being a hero, wanting to earn a spot on The Avengers with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) serving as a mentor.

Keaton will serve as the film’s main villain, Vulture/Adrian Toomes with Bokeem Woodbine suited as Shocker and Michael Chernus playing The Tinkerer.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car) and has a supporting cast that includes Laura Harrier, Marisa Tomei, Donald Glover, Logan Marshall-Green, Tony Revolori, Jon Favreau and Zendaya.

Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7.

Here’s the film’s synopsis:

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming.  Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
