Marvel Casts Zendaya In The Upcoming Spider-Man Reboot


Marvel has cast actress/singer Zendaya in their upcoming Spider-Man reboot as a character named Michelle, reports Deadline. No one is saying who exactly she is, but it’s important to keep in mind that the name could just be misdirection.

Some outlets are speculating that Michelle will be a new love interest for Peter Parker, but again, no one from the studio is confirming anything and at this point, all we can do is guess. A lot of fans still think that Gwen Stacy or Mary Jane Watson will be the romantic interest for Peter in the reboot, but who knows, maybe Marvel is switching things up here and introducing someone new?


For those unfamiliar with Zendaya, she’s an up-and-coming actress who’s probably best known for her Disney Channel roles and is on the verge of a major breakthrough in Hollywood. Snagging a role in Marvel’s upcoming Spidey film is obviously a major score for her and it’s likely just the start of what seems to be a promising career for the young talent.

Spider-Man will swing into theatres on July 7th, 2017 and in addition to Zendaya, the film also stars Tom Holland and Marisa Tomei.

Tell us, who do you think this mysterious Michelle could be? Is it just a fake name, or is a new character being introduced? Let us know below!
