That's according to a report from Vulture which says Jackson is returning to play Nick Fury with Smulders coming back to play Maria Hill again. The character will be played by Oscar victor Brie Larson in future Marvel films, and has been rumoured to be the one who will take over as the leader of the Avengers post Phase IV.

This will be the first time Nick Fury and Maria Hill have encountered Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He also included Jake Gyllenhaal as a hashtag as well, seemingly confirming his reported role as the villain Mysterio, but that's something that has yet to be officially announced.

Those who saw Avengers: Infinity War (everyone reading this, probably) already know that Spidey, Fury and Hill were among those dissolved and presumably killed by Thanos as the supervillain "rebalanced" the universe and destroyed half its population.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously confirmed the 2019 sequel will take Peter Parker out of NY for a European adventure in London that will reflect the global aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4.

But we're still wondering exactly how the story of Spider-Man: Far From Home will unfold. Or it means that Spidey's cool new suit gets trashed. Hopefully, we'll get official word on the cast sometime soon.

A few familiar Marvel faces could soon be joining Tom Holland in Spider-Man: Far From Home. The Russos confirmed that theory and added Peter Parker's child-like reaction and refusal to simply accept his fate also played a part. Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Far From Home is scheduled to release on July 5, 2019.
