It’s been rumored that classic Spider-Man villain, The Chameleon, would be showing up in Spider-Man: Far From Home, and now it seems we’re a little closer to that confirmation. Deadline is reporting that Numan Acar (Homeland) has been added to the cast of the sequel, though no details on his role have been revealed, we know that he’ll be playing a character named Dmitri, which could signify his role as Dmitri Smerdyakov, a.k.a. The Chameleon.
This is still speculation, but given the that Acar can speak numerous languages, and the globe-trotting nature of the film, it could certainly be true.
The official Uncharted live-action adaptation, currently starring Tom Holland as a young Nathan Drake is currently in a bit of development hell. But, genre-favorite Nathan Fillion, long a fan favorite to play the action hero on the big screen, is here to whet our appetites with a fantastic fan film directed by Allan Ungar.
The short is a fantastic bit of production, with a great cast. Even managing to properly do a “video game” sequence in the vein of the original games. Hit the jump to check out the short film.

Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) will direct the film with a script from the writing duo of Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, whose past credits include Power Rangers, The Last Witch Hunter, and Dracula Untold.

Exhibitor Relations is reporting that Sony has pulled Silver & Black from their release schedule, delaying the film indefinitely. The Spider-Man spin-off was originally slated to be released in theaters on February 8th, 2019, but had yet to begin production. Silver & Black was set to be directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love and Basketball), who also wrote the first draft of the script.
There’s no word on if production on the film will continue, but it would appear that Sony is waiting to see how well Venom does at the box office before continuing its spin-off efforts.
