Zendaya – Rumors about Spiderman: Homecoming
After the commotion about Zendaya being casted, probably as MJ (I checked with IMDB now and it’s not Mary Jane Watson but Michele), another rumor is spreading that Zendaya may not be the preferred love interest of Peter Parker in the Spiderman Homecoming movie.
Liz Allan, played by Laura Harrier, (Is this a mis-cast since in the comic Liz Allan is blonde?) is rumored to be Parker’s love interest in the movie. In the comics, she is Flash Thompson’s girlfriend (Flash is a star high school football player who mercilessly bullies his high school classmate Peter Parker but greatly admires Spider-Man), she also somewhat bullies Peter but soon develops a crush on him when it was rumored that he IS Spider-man. By this time, however, Peter’s interest has waned considerably, as he notes that Liz never showed any real interest in him until he began dating Betty Brant, and assumes that Liz’s feelings are little more than a schoolgirl crush.
As the movie draws nearer its release, details are coming in smoothly. Spiderman: Homecoming is slated for July 2017, watch out for that.
