The Most Diverse Spider-Man Movie Yet? Bokeem Woodbine Also Joins 'Homecoming' Cast

UPDATE 6/23/16: The cast of the Sony Pictures/Marvel Studios picture continues to add to its diverse cast. Two days after the announcement that Abraham Attah had been cast in the movie, Bokeem Woodbine has also now joined the cast, playing a third villain; although, as has been the case with previous castings, his specific role is being kept a secret. Also “Better Call Saul” star Michael Mando has joined the cast as well.

Woodbine joins a cast that already includes Donald Glover, Zendaya, and Abraham Attah. But we still have no idea what roles each of these actors has signed up to play. So I’d suggest holding off any excitement over their castings until we know more.

Today’s additions come courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter.

Catch up on past details on the project below.

Beasts of No Nation Child
Abraham Attah in “Beasts of No Nation”

The cast for Sony Pictures’ upcoming re-reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” continues to diversify as Sergio noted yesterday, when it was announced that Hannibal Buress had been cast in a role that was not made public.

Abraham Attah, star of last year’s critically-acclaimed “Beasts of No Nation,” has also joined the cast; and, as has been the case for almost every actor who’s been cast in the film (other than the key players, like the title character), Attah’s role is being kept a mystery for now.

Attah and Buress are recent additions to maybe the most diverse cast of any “Spider-Man” movie ever made, that also includes Donald Glover, Zendaya, Kenneth Choi and Tony Revolori.

I’m certainly looking forward to finding out what role each of these actors has signed up to play.

Tom Holland stars as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Marisa Tomei is Aunt May. And Michael Keaton is playing a/the villain, The Vulture.

This marks Attah’s first major role since “Beasts.”

Jon Watts is directing the film for Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios.

Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal are producing.
