The 19-year-old actor’s casting was revealed by Variety.

The Ballakermeen High School pupil joins Kathryn Hahn in the Marvel Studios series, in which Hahn will reprise the role of Agatha Harkness, though we don’t yet know what his role will be.

Reacting to the news, Joe said: ‘When I found out I got an email which said “welcome to the marvel universe” and I screamed.’
