We talked about how Far From Home appears to be ditching the Iron Spider suit in favor of the other suit that Tony Stark designed for Peter Parker, which could indicate that the movie takes place before the events of Infinity War instead of after Avengers 4. Well, guess what? We have now learned that two more MCU characters are all set to be revived from Thanos's snap and join the Spidey movie. When he finally makes it back to Earth, it's probably time for Peter to meet more of the big guns, and Fury and Hill - while always relegated to supporting roles - certainly qualify as major MCU players. Quite an oddball combo.

The last time we saw Nick Fury and Maria Hill, they were blowing around NY in a pile of dust at the end of Infinity War, the final victims of Thanos' deadly finger snap.

Jackson and Cobie Smulders have reportedly signed on for the upcoming Spider-Man sequel, reprising their roles as Nick Fury and Maria Hill. However, some eagle-eyed fans over at the Daily Dot may have noticed an Easter egg in Infinity War that could be a nod to Brie Larson's superhero. It is set in the '90s so get ready to see a younger version of Nick Fury. However, we're very curious to learn if Peter will remember his demise once he returns to the land of the living. The film is also the Marvel debut of Jake Gyllenhaal, who will play the big bad villain, Mysterio in the film.

Spider-Man: Far From Home is directed by Jon Watts and written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, all returning from Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Two familiar names have been added to the Spider-Man: Far From Home roster, potentially revealing some interesting clues about the aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War.
