Next year's Spider-Man: Far From Home has added another up and coming actor to its ever-expanding cast.
Remy Hii, who can be seen in a prominent role in this week's Crazy Rich Asians, has joined the cast of the upcoming MCU film in an undisclosed role. In addition to the new romantic comedy, Hii was also part of the cast of Netflix's Marco Polo.
Hii is the latest new addition to the Spider-Man sequel joining Jake Gyllenhaal, JB Smooth, and Numan Acar as newcomers to the cast. While most of the new actors' roles are currently being kept under wraps, Gyllenhaal is reported to be portraying the classic Spider-Man villain Mysterio.
Set after the events of May's Avengers 4, the upcoming film is expected to bring Spider-Man back to down to Earth (and, presumably, back to life) as Peter Parker travels the world during his summer vacation from high school. With new villains and Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury entering Peter's world, it's sure to be one summer vacation to remember.
Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker, the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. It is scheduled to be released on July 5, 2019.
