The eagle-eyes of Reddit have unearthed a casting docket that appears to confirm Bokeem Woodbine as The Shocker in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
First spotted by CBM, the report caps off a busy week for Jon Watts’ standalone pic, after the first official poster swung onto the interwebs follows swiftly by a secondary report that claimed to reveal Zendaya’s true role in Homecoming. Still no confirmation to report on that front, though this alleged casting docket does present some food for thought.

Without doubt, the biggest takeaway is that of Bokeem Woodbine being linked with the part of Herman Schultz (AKA The Shocker). Elsewhere on the docket, Selenis Leyva appears to be playing a Ms. Warren, while Martin Starr and Hannibal Buress are seemingly attached to the roles of Mr. Harrington and Coach Wilson, respectively. Tunde Adebimpe, meanwhile, has been linked to the part of Mr. Cobwell.
Keep in mind that this sheet appears to reveal a handful of actors that were called upon for one scene(s) in particular, hence why you won’t see Marisa Tomei, Donald Glover or even Michael Keaton feature anywhere.
They’re part of Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s star-studded ensemble, which also features Logan Marshall-Green, Donald Glover, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Michael Mando, Bokeem Woodbine, Abraham Attah, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Garcelle Beauvais, Tiffany Espensen, Zendaya and The Nice Guys breakout Angourie Rice.
There’s a space reserved for Robert Downey Jr., too, though the actor may well be returning to the MCU much sooner than expected, with reports linking RDJ to a cameo role in Scott Derrickson’s Doctor Strange. That film bows in November, while Spider-Man: Homecoming will pull viewers back from the Quantum Realm and onto the streets of NYC on July 7, 2017.
