According to Deadline, rumors have been spinning that Zendaya “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.”
Traditionally, Spider-Man’s love interests have been limited to Mary Jane Watson and Gwen Stacy. According to The Wrap, the executives have already hired Tom Holland to portray Peter Parker (a.k.a. Spider-Man).
