Zach mentioned upcoming waves in the Wave 69 unboxing video and let slip that Wave 73 is Spider-man Homecoming.

Begin speculation/criticism/enthusiastic cheering.

Hopefully we'll be getting another Shocker and a Michael Keaton!

I just watched the teaser trailer and I'm hoping for another Happy Hogan, just because I can't get enough Favs.

I think Michael Keaton is a given. Will need a few of him for Batman, Gung Ho, Night Shift, Mister Mom, The Founder, Birdman, etc...

I honestly hope there's a generic thug army builder. I army build like a mofo. 

Also I like Tom Holland for a Pete likeness. I don't think I've ever been happy with any of the Pete faces for It/them to be THE definitive Parker face.

No generic thugs. Yes, exclusive TRU 2-pack. Specialty line-up reveal later this month. No pics yet, but the designs look neat.

No army builders at all? Must be a big cast then.

I'd say Spidey, Vulture, Shocker, Tinkerer, Peter Parker, Aunt May, and Tony Stark (or Iron Man, if he puts on the armour) are locks.

Other guesses: "Michelle", Flash Thompson, Liz Allan, and Ned Leeds are going to appear, and there are several actors with unspecified roles, notably Donald Glover, and an undisclosed villain played by Bokeem Woodbine or Logan Marshall-Green (the other will presumably be playing Shocker). I guess Happy is possible too.

Maybe:

Spider-Man/Shocker

Vulture/Tinkerer

Peter Parker/Michelle

Villain/Flash Thompson

TRU: Tony Stark/Aunt May

I wonder how they'll do the web pits.  I like the ones from the best of, but it doesn't make sense/look that good for certain poses (arms up for example)

Something tells me we might get a Spidey in his homemade suit, too. ;)

Has that been confirmed? If so, I'd say that's a pretty safe bet too. Maybe as a TRU exclusive.

From a story telling stand point, why would that suit be in the movie? It picks up after civil war

Oh we're getting an origin scene. Whether its a flashback or pre-credits clip scene, its going to happen. If there's one constant in comic book movies its that filmmakers can't resist telling Batman and Spider-man's origin stories.

But they already said that wasn't gonna happen bc everyone knows his origin. That was one of the first things stated when they got the rights

Kind of off topic, but I hope DST can release two comic waves between this wave and Thor: Ragnarok, so they'll be able to do something special for wave 75. Wave 25 had the first army builder, and wave 50 was the fan poll wave, so it would be great if DST had something planned for 75.

With my luck at just having purchased a lot of the xmen 90s mates for an arm and a leg, they'll re-release Gambit, Storm, etc.

 I think the Blue/Gold looks have a pretty good place in my mind. I'd definitely buy them if they were rereleased, but I don't like them so much that I absolutely have to own them, and there's no way I'd buy them for eBay prices. Congratulations, though.

they were slightly better than ebay prices...but still an arm and a leg for me.

Well if you look closely, he's wearing it in the teaser.

I know what you mean, I have trouble keeping up with the regular waves. My personal "grail" is MvC3 Magneto, but the cheapest I can find him is about 40 dollars loose. I'm surprised he didn't get a Best Of rerelease. I mean, come on. It's Magneto!

That's true. I'll amend my guess to:

Final Spider-Man/Shocker

Vulture/Tinkerer

Peter Parker/Michelle

Aunt May/Tony Stark

TRU: Prototype Spider-Man/Villain

That's pretty funny. I don't really have any interest in Zero, since I've never been a huge MegaMan fan.
