Kenneth Choi Cast in “Spiderman: Homecoming”

Of all of Marvel’s characters, the most iconic is definitely Spiderman. Even before the movies came out Spiderman was well known and well loved. Now we are entering a new age of Spiderman, one where he is truly in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He’s already bumped elbows with the majority of the Avengers and now he will be splitting of into his own solo movie. And here’s some new news on this solo endeavor.
Actor Kenneth Choi has been cast in Spiderman: Homecoming. According to Deadline, Choi is set to play the principal at Peter Partner’s school. Along with Holland, Choi will be joining Michael Barbieri, Zendaya,  Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr. In this solo film. The movie is said to be set six months after the events of Captain America: Civil War, in which Spiderman had a small but lovely part.
However, The casting choice is raising some alarms. If you thought this guy looked familiar it’s probably cause you saw him in Captain America: The First Avenger. Choi played Jim Morita, a Fresno born member of the Howling Commandos. Now, of all the superhero universes this is the one who has been the most strict about its continuity. But now I just don’t know. Choi is going to be playing a completely new character, so its not like the war hardened Morita is now a principal at a high school in Queens. And does this mean we will never see the Howling Commandos again? This casting choice has done nothing but raise questions. I just hope we like the answers.
What do you think? Do you think Marvel’s getting lazy? Or does this have some hidden meaning? Talk about it in the comments and don’t forget to like, share, and follow Sprom for more news on Spiderman: Homecoming and other things in the world of movie news.
Spiderman: Homecoming  comes to theaters July 7th, 2017.
