Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders spotted on the set of Marvel Studios’ “Spider-Man Far From Home.” Jackson and Smulders will be reprising their roles as Shield agents Nick Fury and Maria Hill.
It’s interesting to think of Nick Fury in the same room as Spider-Man. The two have a friendship in the comics and Nick Fury has even acted as a Spider-man mentor before in the comics. However, the two characters haven’t met on the big screen, yet.
Plus, Marvel sharing characters for a Spider-Man movie is always interesting, because technically Spider-Man: Homecoming and the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home are Sony movies. Sony takes home the profits of those films and in exchange, Marvel also gets to use Peter Parker for its own films, for free. Obviously characters like Iron Man and Pepper Potts appeared in Homecoming and Far From Home will at least have borrowed another Marvel-owned character in Nick Fury. It’s the sort of deal that seems unlikely and hard to work out, yet both studios have made it work so far.
Also returning is Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, missing is Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark. Maybe Stark doesn’t make it out of Avengers 4 alive? Or the other theory that is currently running rampant online that “Far From Home” is actually a prequel to Infinity War. That the film will end with Peter Parker on the bus with his friends coming back home, the same bus from Infinity War. It’s just a theory however.
The film is directed by Jon Watts, and written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers. It stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker / Spider-Man, alongside Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jake Gyllenhaal, Cobie Smulders, and Samuel L. Jackson.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is scheduled to be released in the United States on July 5, 2019.
