Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders join 'Spider-Man: Far From Home'

Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders join 'Spider-Man: Far From Home'

Jackson (The Hitman's Bodyguard) and Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother) will be joining Tom Holland for the next adventure in the titular webslinger's franchise, Spider-Man: Far From Home, according to Vulture.

If you're entirely unfamiliar with comic books, the binding nature of Hollywood contracts, or, indeed, how storytelling itself works, you may have taken the deaths of these characters at face value, and assumed they'd never again be glimpsed in a Marvel movie. Jake Gyllenhaal will reportedly join the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the villain Mysterio, and last month we got word that comedic star J.B. When he finally makes it back to Earth, it's probably time for Peter to meet more of the big guns, and Fury and Hill - while always relegated to supporting roles - certainly qualify as major MCU players.

Now that Avengers: Infinity War is out on home video, fans can dissect every tiny detail of the film, and discover new Easter eggs. Given the state that we saw the two in at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, I'd say their roles in Spider-Man: Far From Home are a step up.




It's pretty much a given Spider-Man and the rest of the dusted will be restored in Avengers 4. In today's Nerdist News, we're looking at the Russo's official explanation about Spider-Man's final Infinity War scene and how it came about. The Russos confirmed that theory and added Peter Parker's child-like reaction and refusal to simply accept his fate also played a part.

Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters on July 5, 2019.

Michael Keaton, Zendaya and Marisa Tomei will reprise their roles in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
