Over the last few days, there has been a good amount of updates on the upcoming and still mysterious Spider-Man: Homecoming. Coming out of Comic-Con, director Jon Watts revealed the character names for a good amount of the young cast that has been assembled so far. Now that we know who some of the possibly bigger roles for the kids, but there are also quite a few actors whose roles remain a mystery.
One of the secret roles belongs to Angourie Rice, who has been confirmed as a cast member. Following her breakout role in The Nice Guys, there was some speculation that Marvel could have nabbed her for the role of Gwen Stacy to have her available in the future and lock up an up and coming actress before she gets too big. However, if the latest report is true, she is not Gwen Stacy, but instead a different love interest from his long comic run. Marvelous Realm is reporting that Rice is none other than Elizabeth “Betty” Brant, a fellow coworker at The Daily Bugle.
Now before you dismiss this report because it does not come from a big name site, Marvelous Realm has been rock solid on their reporting for Homecoming. They previously reported on all of the casting roles that have since been confirmed, and even have a few more that should get confirmed when the movie hits theaters. You may want to take this with a tiny grain of salt since it is just a rumor at this point, but I tend to believe this specific report. Let us know what you think about Rice potentially playing Betty Brant in the comments below!
Spider-Man: Homecoming is scheduled to hit theaters July 7, 2017.
