The cast of Marvel Cinematic Universe's (MCU) upcoming instalment "Spider-Man: Homecoming" is getting more interesting as some prominent actors have been signed for the movie in yet-to-be-revealed roles including Bokeem Woodbine, Michael Mando and Abraham Attah.
Michael Mando is known for his recurring roles in TV series like "Orphan Black" and "Better Call Saul" while Attah came to limelight last year after his role in critically acclaimed "Beasts of No Nation." According to Slash Film, Woodbine, who is known for FX's "Fargo," will play a villainous role in the movie.
As reported by Deadline, Attah is the latest addition to an ensemble cast that consists of some of the most iconic actors, including Michael Keaton as the antagonist (most probably The Vulture). Though Attah's role hasn't been revealed yet, most probably he will be playing one of Peter Parker's school mates, given his young age.
Apart from the initial cast of Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr, actors who have joined recently are Donald Glover, Kenneth Choi, Martin Starr, Logan Marshall-Green, Hannibal Buress, Tony Revolori and Zendaya.
Directed by Jon Watts, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" will mostly centre around New York City; one of the prominent locations in Spider-Man comic books. The filming has begun in Atlanta.
"Homecoming" will be second reboot of Spider-Man film franchise, the previous two being Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy that starred Toby Maguire as the titular hero and Marc Webb's "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" in which Spidey was played by Andrew Garfield.
Scheduled to release on July 7, 2017, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" and will be sixteenth movie in MCU franchise, followed by "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," which will hit the theatres on May 5, 2017.
