The sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming was already a much-anticipated film thanks to the return of both fan favorite Tom Holland in the title role and a supporting cast that still includes Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, and Marisa Tomei.
Cobie Smulders, who plays Fury's pal Maria Hill, will join Jackson in the sequel, Vulture also reports. He also included Jake Gyllenhaal as a hashtag as well, seemingly confirming his reported role as the villain Mysterio, but that's something that has yet to be officially announced. J. B. Smoove and Numan Acar are also on board in undisclosed roles.More news: Eleider Alvarez Scores Huge Upset, KOs Sergey Kovalev on HBO

The last time we saw Nick Fury and Maria Hill, they were blowing around NY in a pile of dust at the end of Infinity War, the final victims of Thanos' deadly finger snap. Now we know a couple of former S.H.I.E.L.D. agents are suiting up again to meet Spidey on the big screen for the first time. Because of this, Sony - which co-produces the Spider-Man films with Marvel Studios - did not comment on this casting. After all, Tony Stark dubbed him an Avenger during Infinity War.
Before he puts on the suit again to begin filming the sequel, Tom Holland can now be seen as Spider-Man in Avengers: Infinity War, which is still playing in theaters. "Who's really dead, and who's really in the flaky wind of Marvel dust, I don't know, but I do know there's a solution that they didn't even have to tell me, just because I know who Captain Marvel is and what all that means", Jackson teased in an interview to Vulture. The film will see Peter Parker leave NY, heading to London in a film that will reflect the global aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. Well, guess everyone's getting out of that one unscathed.
