There is yet another Spider-Man Homecoming casting…and it’s none other than Ned Leeds.
But, we are not surprised since we called it a few months ago when we saw the casting sheet.
Jacob Batalon who is playing Ned Leeds had this to say:
“Well, Ned Leeds; I play Peter Parker’s best friend in the film. We are both in high school; we are about fifteen. And it’s just about Peter dealing with being a superhero and going through puberty. He still has to worry about homework; he still has to worry about his crush liking him, while trying to save someone who’s probably in a burning building. He can’t tell anyone because he’s not the cool kid, so he’s just stuck with this really cool life that he can’t tell anyone about.”
Obviously Ned Leeds is not going to be Hobgoblin in the movie, but will he transform near the end or are they keeping him for later movies?
