Two trailers, and about three months left until its July release date, Spider-Man: Homecoming has somehow managed to slip under the spoiler radar for the most part. For a Marvel Cinematic Universe film, that's almost like winning the lottery, but in the case of one mystery, it looks like it's time to cash out. If the latest word is to be trusted, star Logan Marshall-Green's character has been identified, and the actor will be playing none other than Jackson W. Brice, better known to comic fans as "Montana."
You can thank the internet in all of its investigative wisdom, as people have picked up on details from a Spider-Man: Homecoming set visit that puts Green, or at least his stand-in, in a pair of cover-alls that are labeled with the name "Brice." Looking into the Marvel canon, it's not hard to start speculating that Jackson W. Brice is the man that could be serving alongside Michael Keaton's Adrian Toomes in his campaign of chaos through extraterrestrial firepower. Should this be the case, this could mean something interesting for the MCU, as Brice is the kind of guy who runs with a very particular crowd.
Should the MCU Exchange's scoop turn out to be true, there's a chance that the inclusion of Brice could signal that the rest of his infamous band of Enforcers could be introduced into the film canon of Marvel Studios. Though, considering the cadre of criminals have almost always been portrayed as organized crime figures, there's a chance that Brice may have been singled out as an individual character that could be included in a new context. Still, if Brice survives and brings his criminal buddies in on future adventures, this could serve as the perfect bridge for Daredevil's Wilson Fisk to enter the picture, especially since the man known as Montana eventually being known as Fisk's associate in one run of Marvel's comics.
For now, none of this is confirmed, and Brice might even be a decoy that was displayed for those present on the Spider-Man: Homecoming set visit to run wild with. Though if Logan Marshall-Green is Brice, and the Enforcers are on their way, what does this mean for co-star Donald Glover? It just goes to show that you should never put it past the Marvel Cinematic Universe to possibly answer one question by asking two more in turn. It won't be long before we learn the truth, and when we do, you'll be among the first to find out here on CinemaBlend.
