An alleged call sheet for “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” which revealed the names of the core cast of characters, has surfaced online. The call sheet originally appeared on Twitter and was then re-posted to Reddit, but has since been deleted; nevertheless, ComicBookMovie.com snagged the screenshot below:
Of course, the casting information on this call sheet should be taken with a grain of salt, as it’s unclear at this time where the call sheet originated from. If it turns out to be true, however, it reveals a lot of information about the upcoming film, which has kept many of its details under wraps. Sony declined to comment when reached by CBR.
Obviously, the “T.H.” here refers to Tom Holland, who plays Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Despite recent reports that she will be playing Mary Jane, Z — which likely stands for Zendaya — is listed as “Michelle” here. L.H., T.R. and J.B. probably stand for Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori and Jacob Batalon, which means Harrier is tapped to play Liz Allen; Revolori, Flash Thompson; and Batalon, Ned Leeds. The list also connects Angourie Rice to the role of Betty Brandt, or Betty Brant as she is known in the comics.
The sheet also confirms Bokeem Woodbine as Herman Schultz, aka the Shocker. It also reveals some of the staff at Peter’s school, up to and including Selenis Leyva’s Ms. Warren, Martin Starr’s Mr. Harrington, Hannibal Buress’ Coach Wilson, and Tunde Adebimpe’s Mr. Cobwell.
It’s also worth pointing out that Kenneth Choi, who appeared in “Captain America: The First Avenger” as Howling Commando Jim Morita, is listed as a character named Principal Morita. It seems likely, then, that Choi’s character will be related to the one that appeared in the first “Captain America” film.
Additionally, Tiffany Espensen — a Asian-American actress — is listed as Cindy. In the comics, Spider-Man wasn’t the only character to be bitten by a radioactive spider; Cindy Moon, his Asian-American classmate, was also affected and went on to become a spider-hero called Silk. While no last name was provided, Espensen’s casting suggests a connection.
Directed by Jon Watts from a script by from a script by Jonathan M. Goldstein and John Francis Daley (“Vacation”), the film also stars Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr., Zendaya, Michael Keaton, Logan Marshall-Green, Donald Glover, Bokeem Woodbine, Michael Chernus and a still-expanding ensemble that includes Michael Barbieri, Kenneth Choi, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, Hannibal Buress, Abraham Attah, Tiffany Espensen, Garcelle Beauvais and Angourie Rice.
