Deadline reports Tony Revolori, who starred in The Grand Budapest Hotel, has been cast in the 2017 film as a nemesis at school, but not a supervillain. Then The Wrap reports actress Laura Harrier (from One Life to Live) is joining the cast in a “significant role.” They’re joining Zendaya, who previously joined the cast.

Nice. I’m glad they are including such a diverse cast.

Usually, the only nemesis he has in high school is Flash Thompson. I could see Tony Revolori as Flash. I’m guessing Laura Harrier is going to be Liz Allen and for Zendaya...Ava Ayala. Probably wrong, but hey, why not?
