Zendaya Coleman Cast In New Spider-Man Movie

Rising star and #BlackGirlMagic wondergirl Zendaya Coleman has just landed a huge role according to Deadline reports:

Sony and Marvel Studios are beginning to cast up their Spider-Man reboot. I’m told that actress-singer Zendaya has landed a key role in the ensemble they are building around Tom Holland, who’ll play Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the film to be directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car). She was among the actresses who’ve quietly been testing for roles, and I hear she will play a character named Michelle.

Nobody is providing details on whether this is the romantic lead opposite Peter Parker, but it doesn’t sound like it. In the comics, Parker romanced Mary Jane and Gwen.

In Zendaya, Sony has hired an up-and-coming actress who was the star of the Disney Channel series Shake It Up! and K.C. Undercover.
