It’s only March and it’s been an amazing year for Zendaya–and it just keeps getting better. Soon, the actress and CoverGirl spokeswomen could be on the big screen caught in a superhero’s web Deadline confirmed today.
The actress has been cast in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot, playing a lead role opposite to Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spider-Man) and Marisa Tomei (Aunt May). It’s rumored that Zendaya will play “Michelle” in this Sony/Marvel film directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car).
It’s unknown if she will play the romantic lead, but Deadline says “it doesn’t sound like it” given that “in the comics, Parker romanced Mary Jane and Gwen.”
Clearly, Zendaya has tons of talent and would be perfect for a film like this. Not to mention, her connections probably helped as well. Marvel is owned by Disney, a network where Zendaya starred on two shows, Shake It Up and K.C. Undercover, the Washington Post noted.
People of color in superhero films like are few and far between, but this could be a step in the right direction of making summer blockbusters reflect the true diversity of society. And while, Zendaya has yet to officially confirm this news, Twitter is ALL over it.
The film should be released in 2017, with more key roles to be announced in the near future.
