Samuel L Jackson and Cobie Smulders will be reprising there roles as spymaster Nick Fury and Maria Hill respectively in the Spider-Man sequel Far From Home, which is currently in production in Europe.
It has been rumored for some time that Sony Studios’ Spider-Man sequel would contain a crossover character from Marvel Studios’ main Cinematic Universe. Previously Robert Downey jr. And Jon Favreau appeared in the last Spider-Man film Homecoming as Tony Stark/Iron Man and “Happy” Hogan creating the link between the Sony Spider-Man films and Marvel’s MCU.
The last time we saw Fury, Hill and Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, they were all succumbing to effects of Thanos exercising the power of the Infinity Guantlet and wiping out half the life in the universe at the finale of The Avengers: Civil War earlier this summer. So I guess their return is a bit of a spoiler for next May’s still untitled Avengers 4.
This will mark Jackson’s second MCU appearance for 2019, following him being part of Captain Marvel, set to open March 8. That film is set in the 1990s and will set up Brie Larson as the cosmically powered heroine who will be an integral part of Avengers 4.
Among the returning cast from Homecoming are Zendaya (MJ), Marisa Tomei (Aunt May), Jacob Batalon (Ned), Tony Revolori (Flash Thompson), Hemky Madera (Mr. Delmar) and Michael Keaton (Adrian Toomes/the Vulture).
Spider-Man: Far From Home is set to swing into theaters July 5, 2019.
