In a post from Vulture, the outlet confirms that both Jackson and Smulders will be reprising their roles as Nick Fury and Maria Hill, respectively. Their involvement in the Spidey sequel has been rumored for the past few weeks with Jackson posting to Instagram from both London, England and Capri, Italy, both locations being used for the sequel.
Vulture reports Jackson will be joined by Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill in the sequel to 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming. The character will be played by Oscar victor Brie Larson in future Marvel films, and has been rumoured to be the one who will take over as the leader of the Avengers post Phase IV.
But we're still wondering exactly how the story of Spider-Man: Far From Home will unfold. Tom Holland is all set to reprise the role as the loveable teenager superhero, even after the deathly events of Avengers: Infinity War. The two were previously seen in this year's groundbreaking Avengers: Infinity War, in which (spoiler alert) they were snapped out of existence by Thanos along with many other members of the Avengers, including Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland, The Lost City of Z) himself. Or it means that Spidey's cool new suit gets trashed. Plus, Peter Parker's classmates played by Zendaya and Jacob Batalon are supposed to be back as well. 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.
