Better Call Saul actor Michael Mando has joined the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming, the Sony and Marvel Studio’s reboot of the movie franchise featuring the web-swinging superhero.

The feature began shooting this week in Atlanta.

Jon Watts is behind the camera for the movie that stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in a story that takes the character back to his high-school roots.

Big names in the cast include Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya, Robert Downey Jr., Donald Glover and Logan Marshall-Green.

As usual in the case of Spider-Man castings, character details are almost nonexistent.

Mando is a Canadian actor who currently co-stars as the scene-stealing criminal named Nacho in AMC’s Emmy-nominated Better Call Saul. He also appeared on Orphan Black and brought to life the fan-favorite character Vaas Montenegro in the Ubisoft videogame Far Cry 3.

Mando is repped by CAA and Amanda Rosenthal Talent in Canada.
