Marvel’s “Spider-Man 2” is now casting several speaking roles for the upcoming sequel to the popular franchise. “Spider-Man: Homecoming” released in 2017 and received amazing reviews from both critics and fans.
According to reports, they need to fill three major roles for “Spider-Man: Homecoming 2”. The Hashtag Show reports that producers are casting several roles including “an 18 to 26-year-old of any ethnicity, to play a gender non-conforming student.”
Further details of this casting are below. To attend a Nine9 Open Call and learn more about the UnAgency including how to receive additional castings, complete the Nine9 Talent Application.

A gender non-conforming role refers to someone who does not adhere to society’s rules about assigned gender and who chooses to present themselves with any combination of masculine, feminine, or gender-free qualities. Being gender non-conforming does not have to do with the individual’s sexuality but it does often fall under the LGBT community.
While it is not clear what this role will have to do with the upcoming sequel to the box-office hit movie, it could mean a major change in diversity and representation in a major feature film.
Additional casting calls for an actress “of any ethnicity, preferably a character actor or comedienne”, and an 18-25-year-old actor who will play a “charming and insanely likable” high school senior named Jason.
“The very first thing I made was a lookbook of what I wanted the world to look like and what the kids should look like and the high school should look like,” director Jon Watts said in an interview last year. “I lived in New York for thirteen years and it should look like a school in New York, it shouldn’t look like a school in the Midwest in the 50s.”
Filming is expected to take place globally starting in July 2018. Check back for updates as specific casting information is announced.
