Spider-Man: Far From Home cast adds Numan Acar
Deadline reports that Turkish actor Numan Acar (Disney’s upcoming live-action Aladdin, Prison Break) has joined the cast of the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home. The outlet says not much is known about his character, though he will go by the name “Dimitri.”
One key Spider-Man character that goes by that name is the villain Chameleon, the master of disguise and the half-brother of villain Kraven the Hunter. It wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility for a Spider-Man villain to play a smaller role in the new movie as Spider-Man: Homecoming featured appearances by two different versions of The Shocker, plus The Tinkerer, and The Prowler in addition to The Vulture as its main baddie. This however is just speculation.
Confirmed Spider-Man: Far From Home cast members include Tom Holland as your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, plus Zendaya and Marisa Tomei as “MJ” and Aunt May. Jake Gyllenhaal remains in talks for the role of Mysterio while Michael Keaton is set to return as Adrian Toomes/The Vulture. New additions include comedian J.B. Smoove.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously confirmed the 2019 sequel will take Peter Parker out of New York for a European adventure in London that will reflect the global aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4.
Tom Holland recently confirmed a third film is also in the works. The follow-up will feature Tom Holland’s Peter Parker in his Junior year at Midtown School of Science and Technology following the events of 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War and its summer 2019 sequel, which will also feature Holland as Spider-Man.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is directed by Jon Watts and written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, all returning from Spider-Man: Homecoming. The movie will hit theaters on July 5, 2019.
