Well, it looks like there’s more casting news regarding the forthcoming Spider-Man film, Spider-Man: Homecoming, the very first Spider-movie to include a Spider-person immersed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe! Yes, according to our friends at Deadline, a Captain America: The First Avenger actor joins the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming. Wait, an actor from the first Marvel Studios Captain America film?? Is it…is it Captain America himself, Chris Evans?? He did mention his desire to cameo like a champ in future Marvel films. No, unfortunately it’s not; it’s actually Kenneth Choi, an actor whose credits include Sons of Anarchy, The People vs. O.J. Simpson, The Wolf of Wall Street…and the role of Jim Morita, a member of the Howling Commandos.
No, there won’t be any flashbacks involving the Howling Commandos in Spider-Man: Homecoming. No thirty-second clip of Steve, Bucky, Dum Dum Dugan and the gang playing touch-football on a field of derelict Panzer IV tanks. Apparently, Choi’s role will be wrought with a comparable amount of danger: Peter Parker’s High School principal.
What do you think? Will they get along, or will Choi’s character be more frightening than Venom?
Debuting July 17, 2017 and directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Junior, and Michael Keaton.
