After keeping it a “secret” until now it has been revealed that Zendaya will play Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
If you’ve been keenly following casting news for this project you might have suspected when Zendaya was announced as one of the first cast members for this relaunch of Spider-Man within the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) to be honest I just assumed it would be this role given how early she was cast and how popular she is currently. Mary Jane Watson is traditionally the love interest of Peter Parker, his girlfriend, wife and ex-wife at different times within the comics.
As well as this information we also got a look at the new poster from a fan news site dedicated to the star Tom Holland who is set to play Peter Parker/Spider-Man.
