Sony and Marvel Studios are in the early casting stage for the MCU Spider-Man. 19-year-old Singer Zendaya has landed the role of Michelle, according to Deadline.
Michelle could possibly be Michelle Gonzales from the comics:
Michele Gonzales is a supporting character in Marvel Comics’ Spider-Man series. She first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #592 as the sister of Vin Gonzales, who went to represent her brother in court. Later she becomes Peter Parker’s roommate and a potential love interest. She is a criminal defense lawyer and is known for her volcanic temper. She is a student of Muay Thai and Tae Bo Kickboxing and also has a shotgun in her bedroom. (Source: Wikipedia)
Zendaya has some glamour to her, she could be the new Mary Jane. Anything is possible at this point, rumors are buzzing that Ice Cube could be the next J. Jonah Jameson.
No official announcement has been made by Marvel or Sony.
Tom Holland will make his first appearance as Peter Parker in Captain America: Civil War on May 6.
Spider-Man is directed by Jon Watts, and stars Holland, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, and now Zendaya.
That film will be released July 7, 2017.
