Spider-Man Homecoming: Hannibal Buress Will Be Your Friendly Neighborhood Gym Teacher

While Spider-Man: Homecoming has surprised us with some truly incredible castings, we have finally found out what some of these awesome actors will be playing.

While Zendaya is still not officially confirmed for Mary Jane Watson, Hannibal Buress  ( who was another surprising casting ) confirmed his role in the Spider-Man: Homecoming via The Breakfast Club:

Buress states:

In Spider-Man [: Homecoming] I play a gym teacher. I play one of the dumbass characters that don’t realize he’s Spider-Man, he’s Peter Parker. ‘Oh man, this guy’s really athletic!’

The rising comedic genius sounds like he will be playing himself as he adds comic relief to an already light hearted superhero flick. Hannibal Buress is making his rounds in acting as he was also just featured in The Secret Life of Pets and Dwayne Johnson’s Baywatch .

While I am happy with this stellar cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming, I did want to see Hannibal Buress take on a more risk worthy role. Earlier fans ( including myself ) saw him as a possible Jonah Jameson candidate, as the comedic actor would have no problem playing a sarcastic asshole.

Many also thought that Buress would be taking on the role of Robbie Robertson, as the appearance matches in stellar fashion to the comics.

With Hannibal Buress’s role out of the way, many are still waiting on the many confirmations needed for the roles of Donald Glover, Zendaya and others.

As I’ve mentioned before, I really hope Zendaya is portraying the red-haired jackpot, Mary Jane Watson, while Donald Glover hopefully takes on another legitimate role.

So with Hannibal Buress being cast, are you satisfied with him being the gym teacher, or would you have preferred him in a more featured long iconic role?

Also, with Donald Glover still leaving us in the dark about his Spider-Man: Homecoming character , who would you like to see the multi-talented actor portray ?

Spider-Man: Homecoming is almost a year away, so stay doused in the dark with us, as we wait in angst for the other characters !
