Two New Actors Have Been Cast in Spider-Man: Homecoming
Though the web has been abuzz with rumors and reports about former Batman, Michael Keaton, taking on the role of the villainous Vulture in the next Spider-Man movie, Keaton's not the only actor in Hollywood currently in the middle of being cast in Marvel's most popular superheroes homecoming to the studio after years at Sony.

It's now been confirmed that Logan Marshall-Green, known for his roles in The Invitation and Prometheus, has been cast as a villain for the movie, though there's currently no news on whether or not he'll be one of Spidey's more infamous villains or rather just a henchman or other character fighting for the dark side in the Spider-Man's next big flick. Interestingly enough, he's also the ex of Marisa Tomei, who's now playing Peter Parker's Aunt May, but there's no news on whether or not the two will have any scenes together in the upcoming film.

Likewise, Martin Starr has been added to the cast of the film. He's actually played a part in the MCU before as an extra in 2008's The Incredible Hulk in a role listed as simply 'Computer Nerd.' Whether or not he's going to be this same character with an expanded role has not been revealed, but if that happens to not be the case, then their could be a potential contradiction in the MCU. Though many fans don't count The Incredible Hulk as canon due to the fact that Edward Norton gave up the role as the titular hero after filming, Nick Fury did show up in the post-credits scene, incontrovertibly linking the film to the rest of the MCU.

Of course, there's ways that this technical contradiction can be avoided, and no one's likely to care about the fact that the actor also played an extra in an MCU film, but for the canon and continuity obsessed, this could prove problematic if not handled correctly. Hopefully, however, it will be.

Tom Holland proved to be one of the best Spidey's as of yet in Captain America: Civil War (then again, have we had a bad Spidey?), and everyone's dying to see more of him in the role. Hopefully, Spider-Man: Homecoming proves to be much better than it's title logo when it premieres next year on July 7, 2017.
