After seeing how much ass he kicked in Captain America: Civil War, it’s no wonder why Marvel fans are craving to see his first Marvel Cinematic solo feature. After the sloppy, overstuffed mess that was The Amazing Spider-Man 2, we can certainly see why. Homecoming will certainly be an awseome way to kick off the 2017 summer movie season next May. Of course, what is any summer blockbuster without a high-speed hype train? In addition to Kevin Fiege promising a John Huges-style screenplay, the cast attached to it is pretty damn impressive as well. We’ve got Robert Downey Jr. reprising his role as iron man, Marissa Tomei returning as the unexpectedly attractive Aunt May, Michael Keaton reportedly playing the Vulture (Finally! Birdman 4!), and even Childish Gambino himself playing a part. There are even some cast members that you may not have heard of, but are nonetheless welcome additions to the movie.
The Hollywood Reporter said today that Logan Marshall-Green has joined the web slinger’s newest big screen adventure. Moreover, Deadline reports that television star Martin Starr has signed on as well. Marshall-Green is said to have a villainous role while Starr’s role is currently unknown.
Marshall-Green is best known for his performance in 2012’s Prometheus as Charlie Holloway. His roles also include a small part in 2009’s Brooklyn’s Finest and a lead role in 2010’s Devil (AKA that demonic elevator movie produced by M. Night Shyamalan).
Meanwhile Starr is best known for his role as Bertram Gilfoyle on Mike Judge’s HBO series, Silicon Valley. Funnily enough he had a brief appearance in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk as a pizza-loving character named Amadeus Cho. Most likely, Starr will end up reprising his role. If he does, it would be quite amazing to see such a small character return to the big screen. What’s next? Will Lloyd Kaufman return for Guardians of the Galaxy 2? Only time will tell.
In the mean time, Spider-Man Homecoming hits theaters on July 7, 2017.
