Spiderman: Far From Home adds Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders to its cast. 

The duo will be joining Tom Holland in the upcoming Spiderman sequel and will reprise their roles as Nick Fury and Maria Hill.

This means that Jackson’s Marvel character is now confined to appear in at least two movies next year, Far From Home and Captain Marvel. According to Vulture, Jackson will be digitally de-aged for the 1990s set Captain Marvel and will portray Fury before the eye patch era. Fury’s participation in the sequel will be the first time Fury will share scenes with Spiderman alongside his oft comrade-in-arms, Hill. 

The feature will also see the return of Marisa Tomei as Peter’s Aunt May, Zendaya as his friend M.J., and Jacob Batalon as his best friend Ned. Playing the villain is Jake Gyllenhaal who will portray the iconic Mysterio.
