Stand-Up Comedian Martha Kelly Joins Spider-Man: Homecoming In Undisclosed Role


Casting on Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming continues to toss up one surprise after another – and that’s even considering that Jon Watts’ redo is in active production.

Adding to an already massive ensemble that features everyone from Community star Donald Glover to Zendaya, Deadline now reports that Martha Kelly has joined Homecoming in an undisclosed role.


At the time of going to press, both Sony and Marvel are keeping Kelly’s involvement close to the chest and, much like every new addition save for Michael Keaton (The Vulture), there’s nary a mention of how heavily the actress/stand-up comedian will feature in the 2017 reboot.

In related news, CBM has clocked eyes on a set video that sees Tom Holland’s webcrawler behind the wheel of an Audi TT. Could it belong to a certain genius, billionaire, playboy and philanthropist?

As for Kelly, the actress will star alongside Holland, Keaton, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, 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.

Spider-Man: Homecoming scurries into theaters on July 7, 2017 and might – just might – include a cameo from Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow.
