Kenneth Choi Spider-Man: Homecoming Tom Holland

It could have gone either way, but thankfully audiences were quite impressed with Tom Holland's work as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR. Third reboot's the charm. Production on SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING is expected to get underway later this summer as the cast continues to fill out. Kenneth Choi, the latest actor to join Spidey's team, will soon be of a very rare breed, an actor who has played two separate characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Gasp!

Deadline reports that Kenneth Choi has joined the cast of SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING as Peter Parker's high-school principal. If you're wondering where you've seen Choi before in the MCU, he previously played Jim Morita, one of the Howling Commandos, in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER. He's also had memorable roles in THE WOLF OF WALL STREET, Sons of Anarchy, and recently played Judge Lance Ito in The People vs. O.J. Simpson. We don't know all that much about SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING just yet, but our own Paul Shirey recently unveiled a couple of scoops regarding the the villain and costumes to be used in the film, so make sure to check that out.

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING is set for a July 17, 2017 release.

Marvel usually uses the same actors to play different roles...

It's weird but there are a lot of actors in small movie roles that went on to play other roles in the tv shows like Agent Carter and Shield.

As long as we don't get Principal Coulson... That always irked me in the new animated show's first season before Spidey started going to school on a hellicarrier.

It would be cool if he was Principal Morita and he gives Peter some detention room pep talk about his Grand-daddy fighting alongside Cap.

Like Dookie said below, MCU has repeats. Just imagine his character from First Avenger is an ancestor.
No offense to Brie Larson but I would love for Natalie Dormer to play Captain Marvel. The fact that she played the Pvt. who kissed Cap in First Avenger makes the casting even cooler because she could've been Carol Danvers' grandma!

I mean he's not the first MCU actor to repeat. Quill's cancer stricken mother was played Laura Haddock who ironically appeared in a brief part as well in Captain America: First Avenger and Nathan Fillion is making a return as a different (less cgi alien enhanced) character in the Guardians sequel after appearing in the first.
