SDCC: "Spider-Man: Homecoming" Confirms Flash Thompson

While we eagerly awaited the release of the footage screened Saturday at Comic-Con International, director Jon Watts has pulled back the curtain -- if only a little -- on the ensemble cast of "Spider-Man: Homecoming."

Tony Revolori was confirmed in that footage as Peter Parker's high-school nemesis Flash Thompson, a role for which he'd been rumored since his casting was announced.

But in a subsequent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Watts introduced co-stars Laura Harrier and Jacob Batalon as Liz and Ned, whom we can probably safely assume are classic Spider-Man supporting characters Liz Allen and Ned Leeds.

However, Zendaya's role remains a bit of a mystery. The Disney Channel star is still referred to only as Michelle, whom some have speculated is based on the Marvel Comics character Michelle Gonzales.

Opening July 7, 2017, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" also stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Donald Glover, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.
