This past Saturday at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con, Steve Weintraub interviewed Spider-Man: Homecoming star Zendaya about the upcoming superhero film. We don’t know much about her character other than it’s a “key role” and that the character’s name is “Michelle”. We also learned from the footage that was shown in Hall H that she likes giving Peter Parker a hard time.
During her their conversation, Zendaya spoke about her excitement to be in the high school scenes, what she can tease about the film, and her shooting schedule. She also spoke about the attitude the Spider-Man: Homecoming cast brings to the MCU:
What’s really cool is that it’s so real and it’s so funny and it’s so honest and I think the funny comes out of the realness and awkward moments. And what’s even cooler is that I think everyone is very much like their character. The casting is crazy. I was just talking to someone and they were like, “Tell us about your cast,” and I said, “Look right over there. My cast members are running up and down the press line and they’re jumping. That’s us. We get to be the kids.”
Check out the full interview above. Spider-Man: Homecoming opens July 7, 2017 and also stars Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Bokeem Woodbine, Donald Glover, Hannibal Buress, Abraham Attah, Martin Starr, Tony Revolori, Michael Barbieri, and Angourie Rice.
