It looks like Bokeem Woodbine is the newest talent reportedly signed on to star in Spider-Man: Homecoming if this tweet has anything to say about it.
There is no official word yet from either Marvel or Sony confirming the actor's involvement with the project as of yet, but a local TV personality tweeted about her run-in with actor in Atlanta, GA not long ago.
The American actor, 43, is probably best known for his work on Riddick as Moss or in Fargo as Mike Milligan. Bokeem got his start in Hollywood at the young age of 19 with the encouragement of his mother who also acted. The actor went on to star in several minor commercials and such before he was cast in the TV movie Strapped back in 1993. Since then, Bokeem has starred in films such as Spike Lee's Crooklyn and Vondie Curtis-Hall's Gridlock'd. Recognized for his great talent, the actor has even been nominated for his work on Fargo by the Critic's Choice Awards and the Black Reel Awards.
While there are no details regarding Bokeem's possible role in Spider-Man: Homecoming, the actor is joining a long list of talent who've already signed onto the film. Just this week alone, Marvel and Sony have unveiled numerous casting announcements as the film begins production. Currently, the film will star Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man following his cameo in Captain America: Civil War. Marisa Tomei will reprise her role as Aunt May from the film as well while others such as Donald Glover, Abraham Attah, Michael Mando, Martin Starr, Zendaya, Michael Keaton, and Tony Revolori are starring amongst others.
Slated for release on July 7th 2017, Spider-Man: Homecoming started shooting earlier this week in Atlanta, GA.
