Back in August, The Wrap‘s film reporter Umberto Gonzalez dropped a scoop claiming Zendaya will be playing Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Many have denied the report, and now Zendaya herself even claims that she isn’t playing the character.
In an interview with ETOnline, the actress had this to say about the rumor:
“I’m not Mary Jane unfortunately, but I am in the movie which is exciting.”
Zendaya then commented on Spider-Man being her first film:
“It’s incredible, you know? It’s such a huge project to be part of. I mean, who could pick a better thing to be your first movie? Like, I’m speechless. If I could pick a movie, it would be Spider-Man, so I got it”
Do you think she is playing Mary Jane? If not, what character could the actress be playing?
Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters on July 7, 2017.
