Zendaya’s Role In Spider-Man: Homecoming Revealed, Reportedly Playing A Major Character


It seems like there have been quite a few casting announcements for “Spider-Man: Homecoming” over the past few months, but Marvel has been tight lipped when it comes to confirming roles.

We know that Tom Holland is returning as Spider-Man/Peter Parker, and we know that Michael Keaton is playing The Vulture, so that covers two of the biggest characters. But there are still a lot of questions to be answered in regards to which characters will be appearing in the film.

For months now fans have been trying to figure out who Zendaya is playing in the film and her character has been referred to as Michelle. However, it looks like the name Michelle was simply released to throw people off, because according to a new report Zendaya is playing one of Spider-Man’s most iconic love interests.

The Wrap is reporting that Zendaya is playing none other than Mary Jane Watson in “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” At this time details are slim when it comes to this interpretation of Mary Jane and both Sony and Marvel declined to comment on the report.

Mary Jane Watson appeared in all three of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man films and she was portrayed by Kirsten Dunst. Shailene Woodley was cast as Mary Jane for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” but fans never got to see her performance because her scenes were cut from the film.

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” will hit theaters on July 7, 2017.
