True Believers were delighted to hear earlier this week that former ‘Community’ star Donald Glover is in line to join the cast of ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming‘. Though he probably won’t be suiting up in a leotard with a spider on the chest, he would be in very good company as the cast already features some stellar talent. But it looks as though Marvel Studios and director Jon Watts aren’t finished with the excellent new additions just yet as two more actors are setting a course for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
First, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Logan Marshall-Green of ‘Prometheus’ fame is currently in talks to board Sony’s latest Spidey reboot. The actor, who has also appeared in ‘Across the Universe’, ‘The O.C.’, and ’24’, is rumored to stand alongside Michael Keaton’s big bad (who is rumored to be The Vulture) in opposition of the friendly neighborhood web-slinger played by ‘Captain America: Civil War’ standout Tom Holland.
In addition to Marshall-Green, Deadline is reporting that ‘Silicon Valley’ star Martin Starr is also joining the cast of ‘Homecoming’. Known for his appearances in cult favorite shows ‘Freaks And Geeks’ and ‘Party Down’, as well as popular films such as ‘Adventureland’, ‘Superbad’, and ‘Knocked Up’, Starr has been a staple of the comedy genre since 2000. There’s no word regarding his role in the upcoming Marvel movie at this time, but hopefully he has some great lines that take advantage of his signature deadpan humor.
What do you think about the latest additions to ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’? And who do you think Logan Marshall-Green and Martin Starr will be playing in the film? Let us know in the comments.
‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Donald Glover, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya, Kenneth Choi, Michael Barbieri, Tony Revolori, Laura Harrier, and Robert Downey Jr. swings into theaters on July 7, 2017.
