Spider-Man 3 Brings Back 2 Characters:
Spider-Man 3 is definitely one of the most anticipated projects right now and it is not doubtful that when it comes out, it is going to the box office. With Tom Holland leading as Spider-Man, we all got to know about the recent update regarding the case that some of the major franchise actors like Andrew Garfield, Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, Alfred Molina, and Emma Stone are all returning. Spider-Man: Far From Home ended with Peter Parker’s Spider-Man identity exposed to the world, with the young hero seemingly having to go on the run.
However, while Peter may want to run and hide, his world of family and friends may not actually be safe. Homecoming set some pretty nasty villains on Spider-Man’s trail, and men like Mac Gargan (Michael Mando) would definitely hurt Peter’s loved ones to get to him. Spider-Man may have to stick closer to home than he ever has. But now, we have some news on the cast expansion. There are two more characters that are coming in from Far From Home.
Peter Parker’s (Tom Holland) science teacher Roger Harrington, and gym teacher Andre Wilson (respectively). This might not seem too significant but it is definitely not ignorable regarding their roles and the sequel that follows. More importantly, Martin Starr and Hannibal Buress are great comedians in their own, respective, rights. Buress was key in pulling off Spider-Man: Homecoming’s little Captain America video cameo; Starr has been a funny deadpan joker playing a teacher who seems to have quite a few haunting traumas in his career as an educator. Thanks to Peter being one of his ace students, Harrington has a whole new set of traumas to add to his collection.
This is going to be Buress’s second MCU appearance, and Martin Star has been on quite an MCU arc. Before becoming a teacher in NYC, Roger Harrington was just a student, studying at Culver University. His life changed forever on the day that Harrington let a stranger use the computer lab – a stranger who turned out to be Bruce Banner (see: The Incredible Hulk). Banner’s rampage at Culver was one of the formative moments of the MCU.
In addition to Hannibal Buress and Martin Starr, the latest Spider-Man 3 casting report from Illuminerdi points to some additional roles also being filled. One is an “Agent” role for either a male or female, which is supposedly a New Yorker type. The other is a “Detective” played by a BIPOC, with names like Michael K. Williams and Marwan Kenzari mentioned as potential actors. The movie is set to hit the theatres on December 17, 2021, and honestly, this is going to be very exciting.
Marvel has almost a year from now to hype up the project and whip put its marketing blitz for the movie. Let us know how you feel about Martin Starr and Hannibal Buress returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
