The highly anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming is still months away, but when it finally does swing onto the big screen Tom Holland's Peter Parker won't just have The Vulture to contend with. Classic Spidey villain Shocker is also out to cause some trouble. And though we've already got an idea of what his costume looks like thanks to some set photos, that was all pre-CGI stuff. The baddie will end up looking much different by the time the movie rolls around, but now we might have a better idea of what we can expect to see. Check out this promotional material showcasing a battle between Spider-Man and Shocker.

3/4: New York Toy Fair 2017 was a blast! Thanks to @firstordertransmissions and @makingstarwars, I was lucky enough to attend @Hasbro's off-site event today, and was blown away! This is Hasbro's best year for Toy Fair by far, and all of the Hasbro staff members were a class act! They held an amazing theater presentation talking about everything that they have in store for the next few months. We got sneak peeks at all sorts of toys including new 40th Anniversary Star Wars figures, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 figures, and of course, Spider-Man Homecoming figures! Once I got to the show floor, my jaw literally dropped to the floor when I saw how amazing all of these figures look, especially @TomHolland2013's 6" Marvel Legends Spidey figure with Peter's head. It looks exactly like Tom! When the event was over, Hasbro was kind enough to send everyone home with a gift bag with some toys including Star Wars Black Series Figures and Marvel Legends figures! I was fortunate enough to receive a Black Series Baze Malbus, and a new Marvel Legends Green Goblin! They look absolutely spectacular! Hasbro has really stepped up their game over the past few years, and I am so grateful to @firstordertransmissions and @makingstarwars for giving me the opportunity to attend this year! Thanks again Hasbro for making this an incredible Toy Fair! I can't wait to get my hands on all of the Star Wars 40th Anniversary figures, the Guardians Volume 2 figures, The Last Jedi figures, and of course, the Spider-Man Homecoming figures! #HasbroToyFair #NYTF2017 #GotGVol2 #SpiderManHomecoming

A post shared by Eric Cameron ???????????????? (@ericcameronfilms) on

Thanks to Eric Cameron and his Instagram account, we now might have our best look at Shocker's costume yet. Cameron attended a private event held by Hasbro, where the toy company revealed their next slate of toys -- the true ultimate spoiler of superhero movies -- for the next several months. In addition to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming had a large presence, and Cameron was able to snap a picture of some promotional material that happened to feature Shocker.

Now seeing as how this is for a toy, this costume may not be the exact same version that ends up in the film, which could go through some substantial changes before the release date. But the toy version will at least be in a similar vein to the movie, and should lay a foundation for what we're in for. With that in mind, this costume is definitely for the Shocker. It has his signature yellow quilt patches with more orange and blue thrown in (Shocker never did have the best sense of color). He also has a pair of high-tech looking goggles over his face. Finally, what would Shocker be without his vibration gauntlets, which here look much bigger and cover his whole hand. The costume does look kind of lame, but then again, so is Shocker.

In Homecoming, Herman Schultz aka Shocker is played by Bokeem Woodbine, but to what extent exactly is still unclear. Michael Keaton's Vulture will be the main Big Bad of the superhero film, and how Shocker plays into the grand scheme of things is unknown. Is he a Spider-Man 3-type villain that shares the load or is he more like the Rhino in Amazing Spider-Man 2, where he has nothing to do with the plot and just serves as a body for Spider-Man to fight?

We'll likely get better looks at Shocker as we get closer to the release date of Spider-Man: Homecoming, which hits theaters on July 7, 2017. Make sure to keep checking back in with CinemaBlend and we'll keep you updated on all things Spidey as soon as they become available.
