'Spider-Man' Reboot, Actress/Singer Zendaya Lands Lead Role
By Matt O'Bryant
Sony and Marvel Studios are beginning to cast up their Spider-Man reboot. I’m told that actress-singer Zendaya has landed a key role in the ensemble they are building around Tom Holland, who’ll play Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the film to be directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car). She was among the actresses who’ve quietly been testing for roles, and I hear she will play a character named Michelle. Nobody is providing details on whether this is the romantic lead opposite Peter Parker, but it doesn’t sound like it. In the comics, Parker romanced Mary Jane and Gwen.
We will update you on more details as they become available, sound off in the comments with your thoughts on the casting. Who do you think Zendaya will be playing?
Spider-Man is set to hit theaters on July 7th, 2017.
