Samuel L. Jackson & Cobie Smulders join Spider-Man: Far From Home’s cast

Nick Fury and Maria Hill make another return to the MCU for Spider-Man's second solo outing

Nick Fury & Maria Hill

Peter Parker and his alter-ego Spider-Man might be far from home in his upcoming sequel film, but there will be some familiar Marvel Cinematic Universe faces along for the ride.

According to Vulture, both Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders’ Maria Hill are set to join the cast of Sony Pictures and Marvel Studio’s Spider-Man: Far From Home in some capacity. The status of the two characters has been very unknown since they showed up with various helecarriers at the end of 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultronbefore they made a tragic appearance, in the end, credits scene of this year’s Avengers: Infinity War

This means 2019 will be quite a year for Nick Fury after a few years of not appearing much at all in the universe as Jackson will play a digitally de-aged version of the character alongside a digitally deaged Clark Gregg returning to the big screen as Phil Coulson in March’s Captain Marvel which is set in the 90s. Avengers: Infinity Wars end credits scene teased Fury’s connection to the heroic Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel.

Clearly all the characters, including Tom Holland’s Spider-Man who met the same tragic fate, make it back okay in Avengers 4 which will deal with the fallout of Avengers: Infinity War, which, while the scenes were still shocking, seemed like a given that likely most of the characters would return.

Spider-Man: Far From Home stars the returning Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, and Tony Revolori along with Jackson and Smulders and reportedly Jake Gyllenhaal potentially as the villainous Mysterio. The film opens July 5, 2019.
