Ned Leeds nearly stole the show in Spider-Man Homecoming, all thanks to the great performance by rookie actor Jacob Batalon. We got the chance to hang out with Jacob at New York Comic Con, and talk about his desires for Ned’s future, which include seeing him as one of Spidey’s villains.
Wait, Ned as a Villain?!
Yep, it’s not as far fetched as you might think! For those of you unfamiliar with the comics, Ned Leeds is one of the many people who take the mantle of the Hobgoblin, one of Spider-Man’s most iconic villains. Batalon chatted about what he’d do if he were evil, which include eating breakfast on his glider and… going to the bathroom “evil” whatever that means!
Batalon also admitted that of the many Spider-Man friends and sidekicks he feels like he most embodies Ganke Lee due to his hacking skills and unabashed enthusiasm for his superhero friend.
Spider-Man Homecoming releases on Blu-Ray and DVD October 17.
