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.
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?
