Jackson & Cobie Smulders Confirmed For 'Spider-Man: Far From Home'


J. B. Smoove and Numan Acar are also on board in undisclosed roles.

Jackson, who plays Nick Fury in the Marvel universe, will star in 2019's Spider-Man: Far From Home, the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, according to a report by Vulture. He also included Jake Gyllenhaal as a hashtag as well, seemingly confirming his reported role as the villain Mysterio, but that's something that has yet to be officially announced.

Stay tuned for more on Spider-Man: Far From Home as further updates roll in.

The two have been in the franchise for over a decade now, with Jackson making his first appearance as the director of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The post-credits scene for Avengers: Infinity War showed Fury and Hill evaporating into the wind thanks to the snap of Thanos' finger.

Before he puts on the suit again to begin filming the sequel, Tom Holland can now be seen as Spider-Man in Avengers: Infinity War, which is still playing in theaters.

Infinity War ended with both he and Hill (Cobie Smulders) fading from existence, though Fury did get a message off to Captain Marvel before fading away.

Spider-Man: Far From Home is in production right now overseas, and a couple rumored casting additions have just been confirmed that continue to undo certain events in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hopefully, that means a few nods from Ultimate Spider-Man. When he finally makes it back to Earth, it's probably time for Peter to meet more of the big guns, and Fury and Hill - while always relegated to supporting roles - certainly qualify as major MCU players. Of course, Fury managed to first send a distress call to Captain Marvel, setting up his role opposite Brie Larson in the hero's 2019 solo film. How all of this plays out onscreen is still anyone's guess, but if you dig Jackson as Fury, get ready to see a lot more of him.
