Is Zendaya Playing Mary Jane in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'?

Is Zendaya Playing Mary Jane in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'?

Zendaya is starring in the upcoming Marvel movie Spider-Man: Homecoming, but it still has not been confirmed who she is playing!

There have been rumors swirling that the 20-year-old actress is playing the classic role of Mary Jane Watson, but there are other reports that say she will play Michele Gonzales.

PHOTOS: See pics of Zendaya on set!

In the just released official trailer for the film, Zendaya is seen interacting with Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and his friend Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon) at the lunch table at school. She makes fun of them and calls them “losers” for ogling the character Liz Allan (Laura Harrier).

Back in August, TheWrap cited two sources close to the production of the film that Zendaya is set to play Mary Jane Watson. The role is definitely the most well-known of Peter Parker’s love interests and the character was played by Kirsten Dunst in the original trilogy.

Back in July, director Jon Watts introduced the cast of the film at Comic-Con and said that Zendaya would be playing Michele. It doesn’t make too much sense if she is playing the role of Michele Gonzales as the character is Peter Parker’s roommate and an occasional hook-up partner. This role seems to be more appropriate for an older version of the characters, so it doesn’t seem likely that the high-schoolers would be involved in this storyline.

WHO DO YOU THINK Zendaya is playing in Spider-Man: Homecoming – Mary Jane, Michele, or someone else?

  • tom

    She was only cast because she’s a minority.She has no acting skills.

  • Gina

    You could’ve used a better picture, Jared.

  • Indict corrupt cops

    And you look like a piece of shit racist that is crying over a person of color being cast. Go fuck yourself.

  • Indict corrupt cops

    And you are only commenting because you are a racist piece of shit who only wants white people in film. Take that white dick out of your mouth and let people play fictional characters. Bet you’re going to cry about santa being black at the mall…

  • tom

    That’s the truth.

  • LTOZ

    That’s the image we got of her in the trailer…

  • Spellbound

    you’re an incorrigible plebeian.

  • Mike McTighe

    I’d say it’s possible she’s playing a Michele (Gonzalez) character the same way Ganke is Ned Leeds. It’s possible they’re saving MJW, Gwen Stacy for later installments.

  • CorteZForever

    Wow race click bait….that’s very original.

  • CorteZForever

    Clearly you are an idiot because you are so fixated on have Mary Jane to remain pure white that you don’t see that Peter Parker’s potential love interest in this movie could in fact be Michele Gonzales since they hooked up in the comics which shouldn’t be a surprise because real mavel fans know that Peter Parker have other love interests other than your precious Mary Jane. Congrats tom for proving that a two-dimensional media is more openminded than you.

    Plus Michele and Peter did do the dirty in Aunty May and Jonah’s Wedding.

    Dude if you gonna be a flaming troll then be smart enough to set your damn disqus to private so that nobody see what a horrible person you are. because what I see here is really pathetic, you just troll around posting Homophobic, very sexist and racist stuff live its a living which is just sad. Get a life tom.
