You'll recall that Peter Parker (Tom Holland), Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) all died at the end of this summer's Avengers: Infinity War, their bodies transformed into swirling clouds of ash alongside half of the other living things on Earth.
Not only will Jackson be gracing the silver screen in Far From Home, but he'll also be starring alongside Brie Larsen in the upcoming Captain Marvel; the period piece will feature a digitally de-aged Jackson, which will hopefully allow ample room for his nuanced talents to shine.
Cobie Smulders, who plays Fury's pal Maria Hill, will join Jackson in the sequel, Vulture also reports. Tom Holland is all set to reprise the role as the loveable teenager superhero, even after the deathly events of Avengers: Infinity War.
Many are expecting that some of the people Thanos killed in Infinity War will return somehow, and that could include Fury and Hill. The spidey sequel is already underway but plenty of infomation about the bigger MCU story arc can already be gleaned from the cast list. From what we know so far the solution could come in the form of time travel, but we won't know much more until closer to the film.
While we may have seen her symbol on Nick Fury's pager as the former S.H.I.E.L.D. director turned to dust, Captain Marvel was noticeably absent from Avengers: Infinity War. The film will also reportedly add Smulders, Jake Gyllenhaal and Numan Acar to the cast, and will be directed once more by Jon Watts. If that theory holds, it'll make three MCU films in the span of about four months for Jackson, at a time when we'd previously thought his time with Marvel might be winding down.
Jackson is ready to swing with Spidey.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is scheduled for a July 2019 release.
