Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures' next Spidey offering, Spider-Man: No Way Home can best be described as a "stacked" project with all the stars appearing in the highly-anticipated film. Aside from the returning cast led by Tom Holland, Zendaya, and Jacob Batalon, the film will also feature Jamie Foxx and Alfred Molina as the main villains along with the rumored members of the Sinister Six.

And of course, if you've been keeping up with the latest updates about the film, chances are you're well aware that both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield are also being rumored to reprise their roles as the "amazing" Marvel superhero. Now, a returning cast member has also been added to the project marking his comeback to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  

J.B. Smoove who made his MCU debut in 2019's Spider-Man: Far From Home as one of Peter Parker's teachers along with Mr. Harrington has confirmed that his character is returning for Spider-Man: No Way Home. Aside from his Marvel gig, the comedian also does voice work as Frank the Plant in the hit animated Harley Quinn series which has been greenlit for a brand new season over at HBO Max.

In an interview with The Daily Zeitgeist podcast, Smoove boasted about his roles in the Marvel and DC franchises while pretty much confirming that he's already shot his scenes for No Way Home. He said: "I don’t know how many people have done it, but you know I’m in both universes. The Marvel Universe, and the DC Universe. Marvel universe with Spider-Man: Far From Home, and I just did the new Spider-Man."

Of course, it's already safe to say at this point that Smoove will only be playing a minor role in the film but honestly, I don't think it would hurt if they gave him a less goofy character because Midtown High's professor is already a goofball himself. Now, rumor has it that Peter's teachers from Midtown will actually play a significant role in clearing his name following the accusations made by Quentin Beck aka Mysterio during Far From Home's jaw-dropping mid-credits scene.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is scheduled to hit cinemas in December.
