The Jon Watts-directed pic from Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios is the first major role that Attah has taken since that Netflix film, and he joins recent additions Donald Glover, Martin Starr and Logan Marshall-Green, alongside the webslinger played by Tom Holland, with Robert Downey Jr playing Iron Man and Michael Keaton playing The Vulture. Zendaya, Michael Barbieri, Kenneth Choi, Tony Revolori and Marisa Tomei are also starring. Attah is on the set in Atlanta. Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal are producing.

 

Attah  won Best Lead Actor Award in the Independent Spirits,though he was surprisingly snubbed by the Oscars in a rather tone deaf year for the Academy. He also won the Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best Young Actor at Venice and was nommed for Critics’ Choice and SAG Awards honors.He was interviewed in Deadline’s Contenders Event, as he made the rounds at the Venice, Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals to promote the film. His poise and performance was found to be remarkable, given his age and his newness to the game.
