Zendaya has always maintained that she was “just playing Michele” in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but some new information may have proven that she was just misdirecting us. When it was announced the Zendaya was playing Michele in the web-slingers new film fans assumed she must be playing Michele Rodriguez. A rumor started shortly after that she was going to play Mary Jane Watson and a lot of people began to accept that as truth.
Now we may finally know who Zendaya is actually playing and this could be a major plot twist. Movie Pilot is reporting that from the leaked junior novelization, supposedly reveals that Michele’s surname is actually Toomes, as in Adrian Toomes, as in the Vulture. If this proves to be true, we could be seeing Zendaya playing the Vulture’s daughter in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
We’ve heard that Michael Keaton’s character he’s trying to provide for his family and that they will be appearing in the film, so this could actually match up. For now, we’ll just have to treat this as a rumor, but we’ll see when Spider-Man: Homecoming releases in theaters July 7th, 2017.
