Abraham Attah joins Spider-Man: Homecoming

The casting process for Spider-Man: Homecoming continues at full pelt as director Jon Watts (Cop Car) kicks off production on the latest incarnation of the friendly neighbourhood web slinger. News arrives via Deadline that Ghana-born actor Abraham Attah (Beasts Of No Nation) has joined Spider-Man: Homecoming.

While there is no word on who Attah will be playing, he is high school age, so it wouldn't be a stretch to see him pop up as one of Spidey's peers at Midtown High.

With Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal overseeing the film for Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures and under their pact to share the character, Spider-Man: Homecoming finds Tom Holland's (The Impossible) Peter Parker dealing with events following Captain America: Civil War. He is back in Queens and must juggle the stresses and strains of high school and family life (alongside Marisa Tomei's Aunt May) while taking on villains such as Michael Keaton's (Birdman) Vulture.

He will have some help from Stark, as Robert Downey Jr. is on board to appear, and will face problems from a villain still shrouded in mystery (though expected to be the Vulture), played by Michael Keaton (Birdman).

Attah is just the latest casting, alongside Hannibal Buress (Bad Neighbours 2), Isabella Amara (The Boss), Jorge Lendeborg Jr. (Graceland), J.J. Totah (Glee)Michael Barbieri (Little Men), Tony Revolori (Dope), Laura Harrier (The Last Five Years), Logan Marshall-Green (Prometheus), Martin Starr (Silicon Valley) and singer and actress Zendaya.

Cop Car (2015) director Jon Watts recently started cranking the cameras, and the film is scheduled to swing into UK cinemas on 7 July next year.

Attah, meanwhile, will next be seen in Christian Loubek's Buffalo, a film from Spotlight production house Anonymous Content.
