‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ is set to begin filming sometime this summer for release next year on July 7, 2017.  With production rapidly approaching, expect more news to emerge and the latest is the addition of two more cast members.  They join star Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May Parker and Zendaya as “Michelle.”  Ex-Batman Michael Keaton is reportedly in talks to play a major role, believed to be the main villain, The Vulture.

Unfortunately, no names are assigned to these new castings, nor is much information provided for comic fans to guess.  But at any rate, the newest additions are Tony Revolori and Laura Harrier.

Revolori will portray a schoolmate of Peter Parker’s.  That’s about it.  Flash Thompson?  No telling at this point.  The only other bit of info is that he is NOT playing a villain.

Revolori had a role as Dumbo in the recent YA flop ‘The 5th Wave’ with Chloë Grace Moretz.  He also appeared in the acclaimed movies ‘Dope’ and ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’.

Laura-HarrierLaura Harrier is best known for portraying Destiny Evans on soap opera ‘One Life To Live’.  She was most recently seen in the indie gay film ‘4th Man Out’ which co-starred Chord Overstreet and Parker Young.

Much like Zendaya’s role, almost nothing else is known other than her character in ‘Spider-Man’ is “significant.”

Possibly complicating things, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has stated that ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ will be set firmly in the established Marvel Cinematic Universe and feature appearances from characters from throughout the Marvel Universe.  So these actors may not even be playing characters that are typically associated with the Wall-Crawler.

“It really is a homecoming,” said Tom Holland at CinemaCon this week, “because, throughout the movie, Peter is trying to find out who he is and where he belongs in this world.”

Start guessing!  Who will these actors be playing in ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’?

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ directed by Jon Watts, starring Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori and hopefully Michael Keaton will hit theaters on July 7, 2017.
