Despite biting the bullet at the end of Avengers: Infinity War along with a host of our favourite superheroes of the MCU, Samuel L Jackson’s Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders’ Maria Hill are reportedly set to star in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel.
If true, this means that 2019 is going to be a very busy year for Samuel L Jackson, who has recently been only a bit part player in the MCU. He is already set for a starring role in Captain Marvel (due out in March), the film that will introduce us to Brie Larson’s titular superhero. It will also see some major CGI works in-play to de-age Jackson, as it transports us back to the 1990s.
Jackson and Smulders will join up with Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal on Spider-Man 2, with the latter cast as villain Mysterio, a special effects expert who uses illusions to defy Spider-Man’s clutches, and is hopefully a lot cooler than he sounds.
The movie will end a jam-packed box office run for Marvel, which sees Captain Marvel, Avengers 4 andSpider-Man: Far From Home all released within six months. 2019 can’t come soon enough.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is due out in UK cinemas in July 2019
