DJ Khaled looks set to be the latest big name to join Marvel's universe. As FACT reports, Khaled shared footage of himself on the New York set of Spider-Man: Homecoming this past weekend, while a picture of him with Marvel's Stan Lee and actor Tom Holland also surfaced online. Holland will play the web-slinger when the new reboot hits cinemas on July 7.
It is unclear at present what Khaled's role in the movie will entail. Back in 2015, a leaked email saw a Sony executive pitch ways to make Spider-Man appeal to Millenials to then-CEO Amy Pascal. The email from Nick Shore mentioned both Snapchat, a key part of Khaled's brand, and also a "killer DJ" to soundtrack Spidey's moves.
DJ Khaled's new albumGrateful is due out later this year. The album will feature guests Beyonce, Rihanna, and Drake, plus new single “I’m The One” with Lil Wayne, Chance The Rapper, Quavo, and Justin Bieber.
