Jake Gyllenhaal will reportedly join the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the villain Mysterio, and last month we got word that comedic star J.B. Smoove will also be joining the film in a still-unnamed role. From what we know so far the solution could come in the form of time travel, but we won't know much more until closer to the film.

You'll recall that Peter Parker (Tom Holland), Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) all died at the end of this summer's Avengers: Infinity War, their bodies transformed into swirling clouds of ash alongside half of the other living things on Earth.

After briefly appearing in the post-credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War, former SHIELD agents Nick Fury and Maria Hill will be getting involved in Spider-Man's upcoming adventure overseas. Because of this, Sony - which co-produces the Spider-Man films with Marvel Studios - did not comment on this casting.

Much of the Homecoming cast is expected to return for Spider-Man: Far From Home, including Holland, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Jacob Batalon, and Tony Revolori.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously confirmed the 2019 sequel will take Peter Parker out of NY for a European adventure in London that will reflect the global aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. Jackson's Fury will be seen as a major character in the upcoming Captain Marvel, which will feature Jackson de-aged through CGI to play his younger self in the "90s-set story and hit theaters March 8, 2019, while Smulders" next appearance as Hill is only set for Spider-Man, leaving it unknown if she will appear in the direct sequel to Infinity War.

This news also means that 2019 will be an even bigger year than we thought for Jackson as Fury.

Jackson is ready to swing with Spidey.
