The Wrap reports Crazy Rich Asians‘ Remy Hii will join the cast of Spider-Man: Far From Home.
As has become common practice for Marvel Studios productions, Hii’s role is unknown — so feel free to speculate. He joins actors like J.B. Smoove, and Jake Gyllenhaal as newcomers to the series. Tom Holland returns as Peter Parker, with Zendaya, Marisa Tomei and Michael Keaton also reprising their roles from Spider-Man: Homecoming.
The plot is also under wraps with Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige cheekily referring to it as a “vacation.” The studio boss previously alluded to the film as the first taste of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 4, which is said to have more of a cosmic focus than the previous three phases. How that ties into the Queens-set Spider-Man cycle remains to be seen.
Spider-Man: Far From Home opens on July 5th, 2019.
