‘Beasts Of No Nation’

One of the biggest breakout performers of last year, Abraham Attah is following up his acclaimed debut in Cary Fukunaga’s “Beasts of No Nation” with a supporting role in Marvel’s highly anticipated “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” The 15-year old Ghanese actor was famously discovered by a casting director while he was playing soccer with his friends, and he’d go on to anchor the harrowing “Beasts” with a star-is-born performance that earned him the Indie Spirit Award for Best lead Actor, in addition to the Best Young Actor award at the Venice Film Festival.



Attah had lined up only one project since his breakthrough, the Christian Loubek-directed “Buffalo,” but now he’s on the Atlanta set of Marvel’s first standalone Spider-Man blockbuster. The actor’s role is being kept under wraps for now, and he’s just the latest in a string of recent cast additions that include Donald Glover, Martin Starr and Logan Marshall-Green. Previously announced cast members include Tom Holland, who made his Spider-Man debut to rapturous acclaim this summer in ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ plus Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Tony Revolori and Michael Keaton, who will be playing the film’s villain, The Vulture. Robert Downey Jr. will also appear as Iron Man.

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” is being directed by Jon Watts, who can certainly identify with Attah after having his own 2015 indie breakout with the murder mystery thriller “Cop Car.” Watts has been intent on building a diverse cast in order to accurately represent the film’s Queens setting, and we’re thrilled to see Attah have the opportunity to join one of the biggest franchises on the planet. He certainly deserves it after his heart-shattering work in “Beasts.”

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” is set for a July 7, 2017 release.

Attah deserved way more accolades for the role of Agu. He was nothing short of brilliant. Elba and Attah get all the shine, and rightfully so, but the kid who played Strika was amazing too. Didnt even talk and held his own

Do we know who he'll be portraying yet?
People seem to believe he'll be Miles Morales even though Marvel has already stated that Peter Parker will be the only Spider-Man portrayed in the MCU. :dunno:

Congrats on his new role, but Im a bit let down once I heard him speak in real life...I took back some of the props for Beasts of No Nation because he was basically acting like himself. His English is not that great (rightfully so) so Im curious to see what he does in Spider-Man. Most of the reason you give cats like Idris props is because they can act very well but also when they go far away from who they are normally, a brotha with a English Accent doing an African accent and mannerisms is dope, but if you got an English Accent and you are playing a role that has you doing an English Accent and everything else normal that you do you dont get as much respect unless the role is deep emotionally IMO.

Your way of judging an actor is weird ..so guess you have to portray foreign people....BTW he was emotional in movie..
