This cast for Spider-Man: Homecoming just continues to add more names, making this ensemble for the upcoming Marvel film one of the largest in the franchise’s history. Now, it looks like we have yet another breakout performer joining Tom Holland’s Peter Parker for this high school adventure. According to THR, actress Angourie Rice has signed onto the Jon Watts-directed film.
Angourie Rice had a breakout role in the Shane Black film, The Nice Guys starring Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling. It looks like Jon Watts, Kevin Feige and company were really impressed with her role in that movie and feel that she would be a good addition to this ever-growing cast that will seemingly get bigger from here on out.
Currently, Rice’s character details are being kept under wraps much like the many other recently announced cast members in this movie. As of right now, it is unknown whether or not a love interest for Peter Parker has been set in stone, so it is possible that Rice can be a viable candidate for a role of that type. Or maybe, they have something for her that is more than just another love interest for our main protagonist. Who knows?

Angourie Rice joins Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei, Laura Harrier, Michael Barbieri, Abraham Attah, Kenneth Choi, Logan Marshall-Green, Martin Starr, Hannibal Buress, Bokeem Woodbine, Michael Mando, Selenis Leyva and many newcomers. Phew, that’s a big cast. The project is currently filming under the direction of Cop Car helmer Jon Watts in Atlanta, Georgia.
