Coming out of Captain America: Civil War, the general consensus was that we need more Spider-Man and we need it now. Thankfully we do not have to wait too long for the web-slinger’s next appearance, with Spider-Man: Homecoming set to come out in roughly a year from now. Production is now underway and the slew of casting additions continue to be revealed as Marvel and Sony bring in a whole new universe to the MCU. There has been plenty of speculation as for who a majority of the cast could be playing, with basically every new report claiming that details on each character are slim to none. This has not stopped people from speculating as to who some of the newcomers could be, and now a new rumor claims to know who at least a few of them are.
Marvelous Realm, a relatively new site that has been reporting on Spidey’s next adventure, is back with new details on who Tony Revolori, Laura Harrier, and Bokeem Woodbine could be playing. According to their source, Revolori is set to play Flash Thompson, the man who later becomes Venom. As for Harrier, she is reportedly set to play Liz Allan, a love interest for both Peter and Flash in the comics. Lastly, Woodbine is rumored to play Herman Shultz aka The Shocker, one of Spider-Man’s oldest enemies that is low level enough to be a piece to the larger battle Peter must battle.
At this point, take this with a grain of salt, even though all of this seems plausible. I would love to see Revolori have a big role like Flash Thompson moving forward with this universe, and Harrier as Liz separates this movie from other Spider-Man films in the past that only have Mary Jane or Gwen Stacy. Let us know what you think of these rumors in the comments below!
Spider-Man: Homecoming is scheduled to hit theaters July 7, 2017.
