Stay tuned for more on Spider-Man: Far From Home as further updates roll in. Then the new supporting players started to arrive, and things got even more exciting.

Recently added cast member Numan Acar posted to Instagram to confirm his role in the movie not too long ago, and fans quickly took notice that hashtags for #MariaHill and #NickFury were included in his post before he edited the text and removed them.

Jake Gyllenhaal is in talks to play the villainous Mysterio, with Michael Keaton returning as Adrian Toomes, a.k.a. the Vulture.

Spider-Man: Far From Home will be the fifth collaboration between Sony and Marvel Studios, which worked out a deal that allowed Spider-Man to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe while also leaving the character and his immediate world under the Sony Pictures umbrella.

Jackson (The Hitman's Bodyguard) and Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother) will be joining Tom Holland for the next adventure in the titular webslinger's franchise, Spider-Man: Far From Home, according to Vulture.

It is uncertain how the characters' appearances in Avengers: Infinity War will play into this appearance.

Of course, the last time we saw Spidey, Fury, and Hill at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, they had all died as casualties of Thanos' genocidal finger snap - so it remains to be seen exactly how they will return for Far From Home.

This news also means that 2019 will be an even bigger year than we thought for Jackson as Fury. Of course, Fury managed to first send a distress call to Captain Marvel, setting up his role opposite Brie Larson in the hero's 2019 solo film. Their involvement in the Spidey sequel has been rumored for the past few weeks with Jackson posting to Instagram from both London, England and Capri, Italy, both locations being used for the sequel.
