JB Smoove Joins Cast of Spider-Man Sequel

We’ve known that actor Jake Gyllenhaal will play  Mysterio in the upcoming Spider-Man sequel titled “Far From Home”, but what about the rest of the cast? 

Tom Holland will be back to reprise his role as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man, but the remaining cast members are continually being fleshed out.  Comedian J.B. Smoove will also be making his entrance into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the film.  

Eye on Film: A Conversation with Actor Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal is one of the most transcendent young actors of our our time. He was nominated by the Academy for his role in Brokeback Mountain back in 2004, and has wowed audiences with his gut-wrenching performance as a prize fighter in Southpaw.

It is currently unclear what role Smoove will be playing and Sony declined to comment on the casting.

Far From Home, which will hit theaters on July 5, 2019, will see the return of star Tom Holland and director Jon Watts. Holland recently revealed the title of the film, which will be the first Spider-Man solo movie to take the character out of New York and put him in international locations. Far From Home is written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers.
