Spider-Man: Homecoming Starts Filming

Comedian Hannibal Buress has joined Spider-Man: Homecoming in an undisclosed role, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The movie commences principal photography this week in Atlanta with Tom Holland playing Peter Parker/Spider-Man.

Jon Watts is directing.

Donald Glover and Logan Marshall-Green boarded the project last week, joining relative newcomers Isabella Amara, Jorge Lendeborg Jr. and J.J. Totah.

Buress is known to many as being the spark for the current Bill Cosby sexual assault scandal when he called the man a "rapist" during a comedy act. The act prompted a re-examination of Cosby's past behavior.

He recently wrapped Baywatch opposite Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron and does voice work in Illuminations and Universal's upcoming animated film The Secret Life of Pets.
