Remy Hii Joins Spider-Man: Far From Home. Is He Hydro-Man?
The cast for the Spider-Man: Far From Home has added on of the stars of Crazy Rich Asians and Netflix's Marco Polo, Remy Hii.
According to The Wrap, the 31 year old actor has signed on to the film in an undisclosed role, but that doesn't ever really stop the hype train from running. Especially, when such an enticing "spoiler" was conspicuously leaked around the same time as Hii's casting was announced.
Courtesy of a video posted by Spider-Man himself, Tom Holland, we see his stunt-double being absolutely wrecked by a giant wave of water, and this furthers the speculation that at some point during his travels around Europe, Spidey would cross paths with Morris Bench, a.k.a. Hydro-Man. Well, from the looks of things in the video, Spidey and the gang are in Venice, Italy; where there's a lot of water. Ah, Venice.
Well, with the timing of this video being released and the talent he brings with him, it stands to reason the newest villain to the Spider-Man franchise, Hydro-Man, is being played by Remy Hii.
"Hell yea" are the words that come to mind, even if a disproportionate amount of villains in this movie could mean Spider-Man gets his ass kicked.
For those unfamiliar, a couple of members of the Sinister Six getting into the mix, by way of Adrian Toomes aka The Vulture, play brilliantly by Michael Keaton and Quentin Beck, colloquially referred to as Mysterio, who will be played by Jake Gyllenhaal. Unfortunately, due to Michael Mando's busy schedule with the new season of AMC's Better Call Saul, it's unlikely we'll be seeing Mac Gargan aka Scorpion in this one. Which sucks, but it's an embarrassment of riches.
All in all, I think returning director Jon Watts is sure to make another spectacular film about our friendly, out-of-the-neighborhood Spider-Man.
Spider-Man: Far From Home swings into theaters on July 5, 2019.
