Spider-Man: Homecoming has added Jona Xiao!

One of next summer's most promising superhero movies, Spider-Man: Homecoming, has been filming for more than two months now. The Jon Watts flick already has built a cast roster that reflects the extent of the diversity in Queens' demography. Now, it has added a Chinese-American actress.

Jona Xiao, who is best known as the recurring character Julie Yang in the AMC series Halt and Catch Fire, has sealed a deal with Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios to appear in Spider-Man: Homecoming, reports Variety. The 27-year-old actress has had small roles in numerous other television shows, including Days of Our Lives, Saving Face, Trophy Wife, and The Young and the Restless.

Jona will appear in this October's Keeping Up with the Joneses, a Greg Mottola flick featuring Jon Hamm, Zach Galifianakis and Gal Gadot, as well as next year's Gifted, a Chris Evans starrer flick directed by Marc Webb.

There aren't any details on Jona's character or her importance in Spider-Man: Homecoming. The studios have managed to keep the information under wraps. At least we can be sure that she isn't playing another schoolmate of Tom Holland's Peter Parker. She's playing another faculty member of Midtown Science and Technology School, maybe? Who knows!

We recently came across a leaked cast sheet for the sixteenth Marvel Cinematic Universe installment that might have revealed the roles of a number of cast members. And we have heard rumors about Zendaya playing Mary Jane Watson, Michael Keaton playing the Vulture, and Michael Chernus playing the Tinkerer.

However, we still don't have any idea about the roles of stars like Donald Glover, Logan Marshall-Green, Tyne Daly, and Martha Kelly in Spider-Man: Homecoming. But with the movie still around eleven and a half months away from hitting the theaters, we can definitely expect a lot to be revealed in the coming days.

What role do you think Jona Xiao is playing in Spider-Man: Homecoming? Do let us know your thoughts via comments!
