SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING (2017): Angourie Rice Signs On

Angourie Rice

Angourie Rice joins the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming. The These Final Hours and The Nice Guys actress is the latest to join the upcoming Spider-Man reboot, in which she will play an unknown role.

The role will be one of the most high-profile the up-and-coming Australian actress has appeared in. Her most noteworthy role to date was in the aforementioned Nice Guys, in which she acted alongside Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe. In any case, appearing in a Marvel film will likely do wonders for Rice, as the visibility and prestige that comes with such a role will open many doors for her and her co-stars.

Like Rice, many of the other names attached to the project have yet to have their roles revealed, leaving much room for speculation before the film hits theaters:

She joins Tom Holland, who reprises the role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man has first played in Captain America: Civil War, as well as Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Michael Keaton as a mystery villain (believed to be the Vulture), Logan Marshall-Green as a secondary villain, Kenneth Choi as Peter’s high school Principal, and Zendaya as a character by the name of Michelle. There’s also mystery roles for Donald Glover, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Laura Harrier and Tony Revolori.

“It really is a homecoming,” Tom Holland told the CinemaCon crowd during the film’s title announcement earlier this year, “because, throughout the movie, Peter is trying to find out who he is and where he belongs in this world.”

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
