Zendaya

It looks like Sony and Marvel Studios are finally putting together the cast for their upcoming Spider-Man reboot. It is being reported by Deadline that actress/singer Zendaya has landed a lead role in the film which will be directed by Jon Watts. While there are currently no details regarding her role, the character’s name is said to be Michelle.

She very well could be an incarnation of Michele Gonzales from the comics who is the sister of Vin Gonzales and at one point was Peter Parker’s roommate and a potential love interest. We’ll have to wait and see on this one. Zendaya will join Tom Holland and Marissa Tomei in the upcoming film which is scheduled to hit theaters on July 7, 2017. Sound off with your thoughts on this casting in the comments section below.

    Michele Gonzales, Peter Parker’s roommate and “a criminal defense lawyer known for her volcanic temper. She is a student of Muay Thai and Tae Bo Kickboxing and also has a shotgun in her bedroom.”

    • a more “recent” character and one that most don’t know if they don’t follow the comics. A good pull in my opinion.

      You’re rifgt! Completely blanked on that one while writing this up. Well…plus I wasn’t a fan of her storyline. Thanks for the reminder.

  • Joseph Chaisson

    She does not have the talent of acting. Maybe she is an extra (i know that is stupid comment but thats all she’s good for).

      I disagree. Give the kid a chance.

      • Joseph Chaisson

        the nice thing is you have the right.

    I don’t really know about that Michele Gonzales character but I just hope they put Betty Brant and Liz Allen in there. They were the first women Peter dated way before MJ and Gween came in the picture.
