Marvel's Spider-Man Casts Zendaya In Key Role


Actress/Singer Zendaya has been cast in a “key role” in Sony and Marvel’s upcoming Spider-Man film reboot.

She'll be acting opposite Tom Holland, the young actor chosen to be the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Peter Parker.

According to Deadline, Zendaya is playing a character named Michelle. No further details on what role Michelle plays in Peter’s life were revealed, but the scuttlebutt is that she is not a love interest.

Zendaya is a Disney Channel talent, starring in the series Shake it Up! and K.C. Undercover.

The new Spider-Man will be directed by Jon Watts and produced by Sony’s Amy Pascal and Marvel’s Kevin Feige. Holland will debut as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War.

Check out when Captain America: Civil War, Marvel’s Spider-Man, and other movies are coming out in's Movie Release Schedule.

    It's probably Michele Gonzales, Peter Parker's roommate

    That would make sense. I was wondering if she could be White Tiger, but then saw that the identity for that character is Ava. 

  1. Since they aren't opposed to talent from the Disney Channel, get Bella Thorne to play Mary Jane.

    Zendaya is talented! & beautiful!! Excited to see that she is cast as the opposite of Peter. Always great when they cast POCs in bigger roles + we definitely need more women in the MCU.

  2. michelle? that is some bogus. a no body character played but such an awesome actress. was hoping for felicia or mj. zendaya is sooo cool, im hoping this is a false name to keep her true role underwraps
