It’s Official! Zendaya Is Playing Mary Jane Watson In Upcoming “Spider-Man: Homecoming”!
We told you a few weeks ago singer and actress, Zendaya, was a confirmed cast member of the upcoming film, Spider-Man: Homecoming. At the time, we didn’t know much about the young starlet’s role, just that she would be playing a friend of Peter Parker/Spider-Man.
Yesterday, it was confirmed Zendaya would be playing Spider-Man’s love interest, Mary Jane Watson. Zendaya is the first Black actress to play the role which was last helmed by Kirsten Dunst in the Spider-Man reboots.
This is shaping up to be one of the most diverse Spider-Man flicks with actors such as Donald Glover, Tony Revolori, Laura Harrier, Hannibal Burress and Bokeem Woodbine among others all landing roles in the film. The role of Spider-Man will be played by Tom Holland.
Expect Spider-Man: Homecoming to hit theaters the summer of 2017.
