Vulture reports that Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders have joined the cast for the currently filming Spider-Man: Far From Home.
With Nick Fury and Maria Hill now being part of Spider-Man’s next adventure it confirms that the solo Sony films will indeed feature MCU actors in supporting roles, similar to Robert Downey Jr. appearing as Iron Man in Homecoming.
For Jackson, it will be his tenth turn as Fury (possibly eleventh if he is in the untitled Avengers 4). Meanwhile, Far From Home will mark the fifth turn as Hull for Smulders.
I’m sure a full cast will be officially announced in the coming weeks as filming continues to get underway.
Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters July 5, 2019.
