The Marvel Universe is gaining diversity, with actor Kenneth Choi swinging into the next Spider-Man film.

The actor has joined Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya Coleman and Robert Downey Jr. in Sony and Marvel’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” an individual familiar with the deal told TheWrap.

Choi was last seen on Ryan Murphy‘s limited series “American Crime Story: The People v O.J. Simpson,” where he played Judge Lance Ito.

His role in the new Spidey film is currently unknown, though the individual suggested he could be the principal at Peter Parker’s high school.

The new “Spider-Man” movie was written by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein and will focus on Peter Parker’s high school days. The writers are believed to have infused the superhero film with the spirit of John Hughes‘ classic high school movies.

Marvel’s Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal are producing “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” which will swing into theaters on July 7, 2017. The web-slinger was first introduced to audiences via a rousing appearance alongside Tony Stark in “Captain America: Civil War.”
