If there was any doubt left, Zendaya herself has confirmed that she has landed a role in the new Spider-Man movie.
Speaking on The Ellen Degeneres Show on Tuesday, she said, “I can’t say anything else other than I’m going to be in it.”
The 19-year-old singer also commented on breaking into the film industry:
When it comes to the acting space, I’m basically unknown. I’ve never been in a real movie before or anything like that, so I had to start from the bottom like anyone else. I auditioned and auditioned and auditioned and [broke] down those walls because a lot of people do have that pre-conceived notion of who I am based off previous things I’ve done, so you got to really break that down and go hard, put in the work, take all the meetings, take all the auditions.
Her role in Spider-Man remains a mystery. She could be playing Mary Jane or Gwen Stacy, but the official casting announcement declares she’s portraying “Michelle.”
Zendaya will star alongside 19-year-old Tom Holland as Spider-Man. The film will be directed by Jon Watts and is set to hit theaters on July 7, 2017.SuperFable
