Spider-Man: Homecoming is currently filming right now, and that means that people are getting photos of the cast on set. While it’s currently known that the film will feature both the Vulture and the Tinkerer, it looks like the webhead will be going up against another of his foes at some point: the Shocker, as revealed by set photos.

The Shocker is Herman Schultz, an engineer who developed gauntlets that shoot out concentrated vibrational air blasts. In several comics, he’s a member of the Sinister Six, and alternates between being a punching bag for our Friendly Neighborhood wallcrawler, or a competent bad guy with dreams of making it big financially. Exactly what capacity he’ll show up in the movie is unknown (he could be in a flashback, for all we know), and ditto whoever’s playing him. Still, it helps sell the idea that Peter’s been fighting some bad dudes in the year since his debut in Captain America: Civil War.
Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7, 2017.
