is reporting that Sony and Marvel have selected Turkish-born actor Numan Acar for a character called Dimitri for Spider-Man: Far From Home. He joins J.B. Smoove and potentially Jake Gyllenhaal, who is in talks to play the big baddie Mysterio.
Sony isn't making comment, but in the comics there is a Dmitri Smerdyakov, aka Chameleon, a supervillain depicted in early Spider-Man issues.
The Sony/Marvelís Spider-Man sequel has Tom Holland reprising his role as the teenage webslinger. Michael Keaton, Zendaya and Marisa Tomei also are expected to return. Jon Watts is directing again, from a script by Erik Sommers and Chris McKenna. Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal are producing the pic, which is set for release on July 5, 2019.
Can't wait to see Tom Holland again by himself on the big screen. Though, it will be weird again to see "Columbia Pictures" pop up in the beginning and then "Marvel Studios". Damn it Sony!

My money is on him being Chameleonbut the fact that everyone is visually seeing him as Kraven makes a lot of sense seeing as how DmitriSmerdyakov is the half brother of Sergei Kravinoff. Maybe its a twofer! With the movie being called Far From Home, maybe well see Spidey in Europe? Thatd be an easy way to introduce both Chameleon and Kraven.I suppose that all depends on the resolution of Infinity War Pt. 2!
Maybe it's a new character altogether?
Really hoping the rumor of Leto as Morbius turns out to be false.
I'm really looking forward to this sequel spider-Man movie, great cast announced so far, I loved Homecoming and I hope this is just as good
Some people are thinking that Numan Acar might play Kraven but by the name Dimitri, but I doubt it. Chameleon is the closest thing I can see.
I like thatthey're delving into more of Spidey's villains and not rehashing the ones from previous movies...
That is great news! So far in spider-Man homecoming we got The Vulture and at the end when Adrian Toomes(The Vulture) was in prison he ran intoMac Garganwho is The Scorpion. So that is 2 members of The Sinister Six. And now we are getting Mysterio and Chameleon. So now it is at 4 members of The Sinister Six. I hope that there are 2 more members of The sinister six in the film or at least ensure that they make a third film with all the actors reprising the roles for the third film. Great post JayC!
