'Fargo' actor Bokeem Woodbine is to star as Herman Schultz in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'

Bokeem Woodbine is to play Herman Schultz in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'.

The 43-year-old actor, who is best known for playing Mike Milligan on the second season of 'Fargo', has remained tight-lipped about his role in the eagerly-awaited new superhero movie, but a few behind-the-scenes photographs taken on the set of 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' have suggested he will star as Herman, who becomes the villainous Shocker.

Bokeem is pictured in a Shocker costume in three blurry images taken during filming and posted on the backintimemx Instagram account.

The revelation comes shortly after Tom Holland - who first starred as Spider-Man in 'Captain America: Civil War' - revealed recently he is looking forward to reprising the iconic role for his first standalone comic book movie.

He shared: "'Spider-Man' has always been a huge part of my life.

"I loved the movies, I loved the comics, and I always just wanted to be 'Spider-Man'. I could never have imagined that this would become a reality."

The 20-year-old actor - who has replaced Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man - has been performing a lot of his own stunts on the set of the new movie and admitted he has around 20 costumes on set because he breaks them so frequently.

He told Seacrest Studios Atlanta: "I break them quite a lot because I have to do a lot of stunts and flips and stuff, so they rip.

"So, I think, we have 20 suits, I think, that we alternate."
