As production gears up for shooting next month, the cast for Spider-Man: Homecoming is starting to fill out. We know that Tom Holland, who made an impressive debut as the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man in the recent Captain America: Civil War will be leading the cast with Marisa Tomei co-starring as Peter Parker’s Aunt May and Robert Downey Jr. showing up as Tony Stark to help further cement the connection between the new Sony film and the mainstream Marvel Cinematic Universe. Newcomers to the film include Michael Keaton, who will be playing the film’s villain, Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel) and Zendaya will be playing friends of Peter’s named Manuel and Michelle while soap opera actress Laura Harrier (One Life to Live) will also be appearing in an unspecified role.
Danny Clover, best known for his role as Troy on the cult classic Community and seen more recently as an astrophysicist in The Martian, is now the latest actor to be in talks to join the cast. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news, but they don’t have any word as to what character Glover will be playing, stating that details “are being kept secret.”
This is not the first time that Glover has been associated with a Spider-Man film. In 2012, when Sony was in the process of rebooting the franchise, Glover became the center of a fan movement that proposed the actor for the lead role. While the role of Peter for what would eventually become The Amazing Spider-Man would go to Andrew Garfield, Glover did get to voice an alternate universe version of Spider-Man who went by the name Miles Morales on Disney XD’s animated series Ultimate Spider-Man.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will swing into theaters on on July 7, 2017.
