JB Smoove Will Bring The Ruckus to SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME

And what if, just what if, a little bit of Leon were to slip in to Far From Home?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, J.B. Smoove has joined the production in an unspecified role.

Spider-Man: Far From Home won't be with us until 2019, but thankfully, we at least have a title for the film after Tom Holland leaked it earlier this month. The outlet noted, "It is now unclear what role Smoove will be playing in the superhero follow-up". Sony would not comment and nobody would divulge Smoove's role but I'm told it is a lead in the ensemble. While the plot of the film is still under wraps, we know it will take Holland's Peter Parker overseas during summer vacation.

Smoove is a talented comedic performer, popping up in movies like Mr. Deeds, Hall Pass, Think Like a Man, and Uncle Drew. I expect Smoove's role to be of a similar caliber in this sequel: big enough for him to make an impression in the moment, but probably not big enough to spark much conversation after the credits roll.


We'll know everything for certain once Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters everywhere on July 5th, 2019.

Spider-Man: Far from Home is to be directed by Jon Watts, who also helmed Spider-Man: Homecoming.

But what if Kevin Feige was a huge Larry David fan?

Zendaya and Marisa Tomei will be reprising their roles alongside Michael Keaton, who is returning as Adrian Toomes/The Vulture as well, which could potentially mean we're finally getting The Sinister Six onscreen.
