Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders join Spider-Man sequel


Vulture reports that Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders will co-star in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the Spidey sequel to Sony and Marvel's Homecoming that's now filming in Europe.

As for the rest of the Spider-Man: Far From Home cast, JB Smoove has some kind of role, and Michael Keaton is supposed to reprise his role as Aadrian Toomes, AKA The Vulture. Nick Fury back in Iron Man in 2008 and Smulders first appearing in 2012's MCU crossover The Avengers as Maria Hill, Fury's right-hand woman. Let us know down below!

Incredibly, you'd be wrong: though we've long known that Tom Holland would be returning as Peter Parker in next year's Spider-Man: Far From Home, it now turns out that both Smulders and Jackson will also be reprising their MCU roles in Jon Watts' film.

The character Captain Marvel was teased at the end of the film in the post-credits scene as a potential ace in the hole to defeat Thanos. Captain Marvel sees his character, Nick Fury, set in the 1990's with Brie Larson's Carol Danvers and fellow SHIELD agent Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson; Marvel will be using de-aging technology to reduce Jackson and Gregg's appearance by 25 years.

As of right now, Spider-Man: Far From Home is shooting in Europe, which is fitting since the film is set in Europe (you know...far from home), and will see Peter tackling his issues (and presumably Jake Gyllenhaal) overseas. Certainly a hint that Avengers 4 will change the course of the narrative.

Looks like Samuel L. Jackson isn't finished with the Marvel Cinematic Universe just yet. How all of this plays out onscreen is still anyone's guess, but if you dig Jackson as Fury, get ready to see a lot more of him.

Other upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movies include Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019, the fourth Avengers movie on May 3, 2019, Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 5, 2019, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in 2020.
