Zendaya joins Spider Man cast – Actress and singer Zendaya has reportedly been cast in the latest reboot of the Spider-Man franchise.
According to Deadline, Zendaya will be playing a character named Michelle alongside Tom Holland, who plays Peter Parker.
Holland won’t be making his debut in the reboot which is due in 2017, but in Captain America: Civil War, which is out later this year.
Everyone sorta already knows how Peter Parker became Spider-Man, and the new movie will not be another origins story.
“I think that everybody feels like, you know, [Peter Parker] got bit by a spider and you know Uncle Ben died,” screenwriter Jonathan Goldstein told Grantland back in August. “We probably don’t need to revisit that.”
