With Spider-Man: From From Home continuing to assemble its key cast, now comes word that a pair of MCU veterans will be making an appearance in the Homecoming sequel.
Courtesy of Vulture, Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders’ Maria Hill will be joining Tom Holland’s Wall-crawler in Far From Home. This is a pair, of course, who have a long and lengthy history with the Marvel Cinematic Universe; Jackson’s Fury debuting in an Iron Man post-credits scene back in 2008; Smulder’s Agent Hill first appearing in 2012’s Avengers Assemble.
Given Spidey, Fury, and Hill were all snapped out of existence by Thanos by the time Avengers: Infinity War came to a close, obviously a few things will have to be addressed before Spider-Man: Far From Home swings to the silver screen.
In terms of what we know about the sequel, it will largely take place in London and will see Jake Gyllenhaal playing the nefarious Mysterio as the film’s ‘big bad’. Michael Keaton will be back in some capacity as Adrian Toomes, aka Vulture, and it looks as if Michael Mando’s Mac Gargan will also be returning.
To be once again directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Far From Home is set for a July 2019 release. Before that, Jackson’s Fury will have a key part to play in next March’s Captain Marvel. In that ‘90s-set picture, we’ll be treated to a de-aged, two-eyed take on Fury. Similarly, it appears that Smulders' Hill will be another to be a part of Captain Marvel in some capacity.
