Remy Hii, known for Netflix’s Marco Polo and the upcoming hit Crazy Rich Asians, has just been cast in Spider-Man: Far From Home in an undisclosed role. Hii is an Australian actor of Asian descent and joins Jake Gyllenhaal, Numan Acar, and JB Smoove as one of the films new cast members.
While several of the cast members’ roles have yet to be confirmed, we did report a few months ago a rumor that stated that the sequel to Homecoming would introduce a young Spider-Slayer, Alistair Smythe. Hii seems like a good interesting candidate for that role. We’ve known for some time that the production has been intensively looking for a new male lead to brush up against Tom Holland. We think Hii is that actor.
