It won’t be long now before filming begins on the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, which we are still referring to right now as Homecoming 2, until we know any different. Not long ago we heard they were looking for a new male lead to play alongside star Tom Holland.

That Hashtag Show predicted this casting would be for the part of Alistair Smythe, who eventually becomes an antagonist of Spider-Man. Now The outlet has reported that Marvel are looking for another three new actors to play high school students in the sequel. Here are the details of what the casting directors are looking for.
- An 18-22 year old ethnicity to play a gender non-conforming student.
- An 18-26 year old actress of any ethnicity, preferably a character actor or comedienne.
- An 18-25 year old male, to play a high school senior named “JASON” who is described as “charming and insanely likable.”
The rumors of Parker heading to London in some sort of student exchange, could set the stage for Peter to come across some new student friends from across the globe. One would assume these new characters would not necessarily have origins in the comics, but who knows? Marvel is so early into Spider-Man they can literally go anywhere from here.
Spider-Man: Homecoming seemed to have its share of critics , but I was certainly one of those who loved it. Spidey was always my favorite comic book character as a kid, alongside DC’s Batman. What I loved about both these comics, was the fact they both seemed to have the best villains. I wasn’t a fan of the Sam Raimi movies save Spider-Man 2 and even less enamored with The Amazing Spider-Man movies, whereas Homecoming just ticked all the boxes for me.
