Zendaya Coleman, a Disney Channel teen star, will play Mary Jane Watson, Peter Parker’s love interest in the much-awaited Spider-Man movie ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming according to ‘The Wrap’.
Zendaya, the star of the Disney Channel series “Shake It Up!” and “K.C. Undercover,” was cast back in March to play a “key role” as a character named Michelle. The website ‘The Wrap’ also reports a recent table read of the script saw several big hints dropped that Michelle (Zandaya’s character) is actually Spider-Man/Peter Parker's longtime love Mary Jane.
The film which is slated to release on July 7, 2017, also stars Tom Holland as the titular character — who made his first appearance in Captain America: Civil War — Robert Downey Jr. reprising his role as Iron-Man and Marisa Tomei as Aunt May. The film will be produced by Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige.
