He joins new castmember J.B. Smoove and potentially Jake Gyllenhaal, who is in talks to play the big baddie Mysterio.
Michael Keaton, Zendaya and Marisa Tomei also are expected to return. Jon Watts is directing again, from a script by Erik Sommers and Chris McKenna. Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal are producing the pic, which is set for release on July 5, 2019.
This is the second big-budget feature that Acar has landed after being cast in Disney’s live-action Aladdin adaptation, also due out next year.
