The comedian, known for his stand up and previous roles in 30 Rock, Neighbours, The Eric Andre Show and Broad City, will be appearing alongside Tom Holland, Michael Keaton and Donald Glover in the upcoming Marvel film. As Variety reports, Buress has a number of appearances before his appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
