Then the new supporting players started to arrive, and things got even more exciting. Jake Gyllenhaal is also all but confirmed to play Quentin Beck, better known as his evil, mind-bending alter-ego, Mysterio.

Recently added cast member Numan Acar posted to Instagram to confirm his role in the movie not too long ago, and fans quickly took notice that hashtags for #MariaHill and #NickFury were included in his post before he edited the text and removed them.

Vulture reports that Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders have joined the cast of the Spider-Man sequel, which is now shooting in Europe.

The two have been in the franchise for over a decade now, with Jackson making his first appearance as the director of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Those who saw Avengers: Infinity War (everyone reading this, probably) already know that Spidey, Fury and Hill were among those dissolved and presumably killed by Thanos as the supervillain "rebalanced" the universe and destroyed half its population.


Not only will Jackson be gracing the silver screen in Far From Home, but he'll also be starring alongside Brie Larsen in the upcoming Captain Marvel; the period piece will feature a digitally de-aged Jackson, which will hopefully allow ample room for his nuanced talents to shine.

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.

Fury and Hill's presumed resurrection is less surprising than the news that they'll be joining a Spider-Man film, and it gives us some very interesting hints as to what's to come for Peter Parker when he returns from the dust. If that theory holds, it'll make three MCU films in the span of about four months for Jackson, at a time when we'd previously thought his time with Marvel might be winding down.

Jackson is ready to swing with Spidey.
