Martin Starr Logan Marshall Green

Martin Starr and Logan Marshall-Green added to the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming. The two actors will appear in the new Marvel Cinematic Universe-set Spider-Man reboot from director Jon Watt.

The exact roles Starr and Green have been given are unknown at the moment, but it is known that the latter will be playing a minor villain allied with the main antagonist of the film whom little is known about as well. While the character’s identity remains a mystery, observers speculate that it might be The Vulture, with Marvel‘s confirmation that Birdman‘s Michael Keaton will play the role giving further life to these rumors:

The two thesps join a Spider-Man: Homecoming cast that currently includes Tom Holland as Peter Parker, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Michael Keaton as a mystery villain (believed to be the Vulture), 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, 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.”

Scripted by Vacation writers and directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, Spider-Man: Homecoming will, according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, feature characters from throughout the MCU.

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.
