Ever since Tom Holland was announced as the new newly-rebooted Spider-Man, fans have been wondering if Mary Jane would once again appear on the big screen.

According to The Wrap, Zendaya - who became week known after starring in the Disney channel’s Shale It Up - will be starring as the aforementioned love interest of Peter Parker in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming.

As yet, the star’s role in the film has only officially been confirmed as being Michelle, with Marvel not commenting on the recent bout of speculation.

Starring alongside both Holland and Zendaya in the film are Michael Keaton, rumored to be playing the villain Vulture, Donald Glover, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, and Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark.

In recent Marvel Studios news, Natalie Portman has confirmed she will not be returning to the Thor series, while the writer behind Black Panther - who debuted in the Marvel Universe alongside Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War - has given away details about the film.
