SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING (2017): Hannibal Buress Reveals Role

Hannibal Buress

Hannibal Buress discloses his role in Spider-Man: Homecoming. The Secret Life of Pets voice actor and comedian announced which character he will play in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot from Sony Pictures and Marvel.

For some time now, it has been rumored that Buress would play a gym teacher at the high school Peter Parker goes to. Speaking in an interview for The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1, the comedian confirmed that he would indeed be playing such a role.

Poking fun at the nature of the character, he described it as “one of the dumb*ss characters” who is completely oblivious to the fact that Parker is Spider-Man. Although Buress didn’t provide a name for the role during the interview, IMDb shows that he will playing one Coach Wilson:

This new information jibes with a (now deleted) call sheet posted on Reddit that revealed Hannibal’s role as “Coach Wilson.” There is still speculation over what roles the other actors participating in the film will play. While fans already know that Tom Holland is playing Peter Parker, Marisa Tomei will portray Aunt May, and Robert Downey Jr. will reprise his Iron Man role, the cast also includes big names like Donald Glover and Michael Keaton, whose exact roles are still unknown at this point.

Rumors have been swirling that Zendaya would be playing the role of Mary Jane, but Sony yet to officially confirm. The leaked list, as well as initial reports when she was cast, still have her playing a character named “Michelle.”
