I Love Marvel Studios

How can you not?

Spider-Man: Homecoming is coming next year, and actor Zendaya, who was rumoured to play Mary-Jane, has revealed she will not be playing a love interest.

Which. Is. Great.

“My character is not romantic,” she said. “My character is like very dry, awkward, intellectual, and because she’s so smart, she just feels like she doesn’t need to talk to people, like, ‘My brain is so far ahead of you that you’re just not really on my level.’ So she comes off very weird.”

All we know is that her character is referred to as Michelle. She also commented on the outrage that some extreme fans had when it was revealed an African American woman could play Mary-Jane.

“People are going to react over anything. But nothing [about who I’m playing] is fact,” she said. “It’s funny to watch the guessing game. But of course there’s going to be outrage over that because for some reason some people just aren’t ready.”

She made a point of saying that diversity is everywhere you look, and “it’s beautiful, and that’s what should be reflected and that’s what is going to be reflected so you’re just going to have to deal with it”.

She knows how it is.

Tom Holland recently revealed that he has signed up for three Marvel solo films, and will make three appearances in other films. The first appearance was Civil War, and it’s likely he’ll appear in Infinity Wars, which is supposedly going to be one movie instead of two.

Spider-Man: Homecoming will be released in summer next year, and will star Tom Holland, Zendaya, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei and Michael Keaton, who is confirmed as the bad guy.
