SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Adds Another Surprising Cast Member In The Form Of A UFC Champion

Shooting may be well underway on Spider-Man: Homecoming, but more cast members continue to be revealed. The latest is UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley. Find out more after the jump!

This past weekend, Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland was spotted at UFC 201, and now we know why! Tyron Woodley won the welterweight championship at the event in Atlanta, Georgia, and he revealed on The MMA Hour (via Spider-Man News) today that he's landed a role in the reboot. Who he's playing remains a mystery of course, but he'll make for a tough foe for the wall-crawler.

"I don’t know if I can even say this," he teased, "but I’m working on a Marvel movie on Thursday in Atlanta." Woodley has plenty of experience in the world of film as he's done stunts for Olympus Has Fallen and Straight Outta Compton and also has a role in the next Fast & Furious movie. While it would be easy to assume that he's just playing Random Thug #3, bear in mind that the last UFC champion to show up in the MCU was Georges St-Pierre, and he made quite the impact in The Winter Soldier.

As always, we'll keep you updated on Spider-Man: Homecoming (especially as it adds at least one new cast member a week), but for now, be sure to share your thoughts on this news in the usual place.
