Spider-Man Fan’s Scorpion Cosplay Is Ready to Terrorize Tom Holland

A cosplayer's armored Scorpion costume brings the Spider-Man villain to life, looking ready to go toe to toe with Tom Holland's friendly neighborhood web-slinger in a new video on social media.

Coy Jandreau posted the video on Twitter, featuring the unidentified Scorpion cosplayer in action, posing for the camera in a series of crouched attack poses. The fan's costume is highly armored, reminiscent of the Green Goblin's military tech from Sam Raimi's Spider-Man. Jandreau followed this post with an image of the cosplayer facing off against another dressed as Mortal Kombat's Scorpion. "THIS was the next moment," Jandreau captioned the latter post. "Glorious!" He also asked if anyone could identify the cosplayer. At the time of this article, the fan's name remains unknown.


Developed by Spider-Man creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, Scorpion made his comics debut in The Amazing Spider-Man #19 as Mac Gargan, a private investigator hired by The Daily Bugle's J. Jonah Jameson to discover how Peter Parker obtains his photographs of Spider-Man. Jameson later hires Gargan to be the test subject of Dr. Farley Stillwell, which gives him the attributes of a scorpion, said to be the spider's natural predator, as well as his signature costume with a clubbed mechanical tail. The procedure drives Garagn mad as he becomes consumed by the predatory instincts of his villainous alter ego's namesake. Gargan turns on Jameson and becomes a regular threat to the webhead.

Scorpion's Onscreen History

The Scorpion has appeared in several animated projects, such as 1967's Spider-Man, 1981's Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, 1994's Spider-Man, 2008's Spectacular Spider-Man and, most recently, 2018's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The character's potential first live-action appearance was debated among fans in the build-up to Drew Goddard's failed Sinister Six movie set to follow 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man 2, though Goddard has never officially confirmed his team's roster. The character eventually made his live-action debut in 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming, played by Michael Mando. Though the actor's brief turn did not see him in Scorpion's iconic costume, the film's post-credits scene teased a costumed future for the character in a team-up with Michael Keaton's Vulture.

That said, 2021's Spider-Man: No Way Home and a post-credits scene from 2022's Morbius have put Scorpion's onscreen future in doubt. The combined consequences of these films saw Keaton's Toomes travel to Sony's Spider-Man Universe, where he attempts to form a team of villains with Jared Leto's Michael Morbius instead of Mando's Gargan. On the other hand, Kingpin's introduction in the Marvel Cinematic Universe may increase the odds of a Scorpion return, given the pair's previous team-ups in comics and animation.

In February, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige revealed that the story for Tom Holland's Spider-Man 4 is settled, with writers currently "putting pen to paper." It is unknown which villains will play a part in Spidey's next big screen adventure, which has yet to receive a release date.
