Spider-Man Homecoming has had a lot of rumors circulating around the internet. One involves who former Disney star Zendaya is actually playing. Many believe she is playing Mary Jane. While others think she is playing Michelle, an unknown character that dropped last year. As a result during an interview with MTV News’ Gaby Wilson and Josh Horowitz while at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, Zendaya cleared the air stating:

“My character is 100 percent Michelle. That’s her name. I promise you I’m not lying. And she’s definitely a different character. I think this is a character that I can have fun with and really create what I wanted to make her. The director had a lot of really cool ideas on how to make her weird, and interesting, and cool. She says weird things at the wrong time but I think that’s why people will like her. So it was nice. She is like my spirit animal, you know, like how I feel on the inside.”

Well, I guess that confirms that she is playing newcomer Michelle and not Mary Jane. But I am sure many will still doubt that. What do you guys think?

Synopsis: A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr., Zendaya, Donald Glover, Logan Marshall-Green, and Marisa Tomei.

Spider-Man: Homecoming will be released on July 7, 2017.
