UPDATE: 9/1/16: The specific roles that several actors have been cast to play in the upcoming “Spider-Man: Homecoming” movie have mostly been kept underwraps, including those to be played by Zendaya, Bokeem Woodbine, Abraham Attah, Garcelle Beauvais, Hannibal Buress and Donald Glover. An update (below) about 2 weeks ago tagged Zendaya as the new Mary Jane Watson, but Marvel/Sony have yet to confirm this.
Intentionally or not, Hannibal Buress revealed who his character is, during an interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, confirming a previous unverified rumor that he would be a gym teacher at Peter Parker’s high school.
“Small roles in big movies, that should be my thing. ‘Baywatch’ and the Spider-Man movie, coming out next year,” Buress said of two of his upcoming feature film roles. “In ‘Spider-Man’ I play a gym teacher. I play one of the dumb-ass characters that [doesn’t] realize he’s Spider-Man, he’s Peter Parker. ‘Oh man, this guy’s really athletic!’”
So there you have it. Unless he’s intentionally misleading us, it’s case closed in Buress’ case.
Now we wait to learn about who the other actors will play.
Directed by Jon Watts, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is slated for a July 7, 2017 release.
