ScreenRant has revealed who actor Remy Hii (Marco Polo, ) is playing in Spider-Man: Far From Home and it looks like his character might be a romantic rival of Peter Parker, someone that may end up wooing MJ. They’ve revealed Remy is playing a fellow student named Brad and producer Eric Carroll gave some insight to what his dynamic will be with the group of kids.
Remy Hii will be a crucial part of those realistic high school dynamics, as he’s playing a student named Brad. As producer Eric Carroll explained during our set visit to the UK over the Summer.
“He is the kind of guy [that] guys like me and Peter hated in high school. His hair is always looking right, the clothes always fit the way they’re supposed to, he always would have something funny to say, and he’s read all the same books as MJ – or at least he lies and says he’s read all the same books as MJ.”
“We wanted to keep that sort of high school soap opera thing alive in this movie,” Carroll added. “So, if you really look back at the old Spider-Man comics, that side of it is really as important as the superhero.” A
“He’s not mean-spirited. He doesn’t pick on Peter or shove him in lockers. He just happens to make the girls Peter likes to laugh a lot, which makes Peter uncomfortable.”
Brad could end up a surrogate for Flash Thompson, as the MCU version of Flash is a rich kid that is still kind of a dork making him more of peer/friend of Peter than a straight-up bully or someone vying for MJ’s attention.
In the comics, MJ dated Brad Davis, an Empire State University quarterback. We believe there is a good chance Remy is playing this character.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is set for release on July 2nd.
