Boy this cast keep getting bigger and bigger! We already know Tom Holland’s returning from his breakout Captain America: Civil War debut along with Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr. We already know that Michael Keaton will be the villain (possibly The Vulture), but the casting for Spider-Man: Homecoming has continued to grow in recent days including additions like Donald Glover, Martin Starr, Logan Marshall-Green, and Hannibal Buress are already joining a cast that’s including Tony Revolori and Zendaya. Needless to say, this is going to be a big film.
It has just been confirmed that actor Abraham Attah has just been cast for an unspecified role in the upcoming film. Attah gained critical acclaim for his breakout performance in the Netflix Original Film Beasts of No Nation as the lead in the brutal war film surrounding child soldiers in a fictitious African Nation. Attah was so good in the film, there were many who felt that he was snubbed during this past year’s Oscars. Attah did manage to take home the Best Male Lead award at this year’s Independent Spirit Awards. And numerous other award nominations. This young man’s going places! Because of his young age, it is assumed that he will be a member of Peter Parke’s high school in the upcoming Spider-Man film. Could he possibly be a young Miles Morales?
Spider-Man: Homecoming is currently filming and will be released in theaters July 7, 2017.
