SPIDERMAN HOMECOMING ZENDAYA'S CHARACTER TRUE IDENTITY
Well, there has been a lot of speculation on the identity of Zendaya Coleman's character in Spiderman Homecoming, people have speculated that the name "Michelle" is just a mask for her real name "Mary Jane Watson" this rumor has been shot down by the cast of the film and Marvel themselves. We do have leaks in a possible Mary Jane in the MCU, which came out last year.

There were other rumors that Zendaya would play Peter's other love, Gwen Stacy. This is unlikely as it seems like we may have a Gwen Stacy in the MCU. In the Disney behind the scenes on Spiderman Homecoming we get a sneak peek at the main cast getting a picture was taken, Tom Holland, Jacob Batalon, Zendaya, Laura Harrier, and Tony Revolori is there, as well as Angourie Rice. This made me wonder, she has a remarkable resemblance to Gwen Stacy. However, this was shot down by the same rumor we got this story on.
So back to the topic at hand, who is Zendaya's character, Michelle in Spiderman Homecoming. Well thanks to a junior novelization of Spiderman Homecoming, we have the last name to give Michelle, Michelle Toomes. As in daughter of Adrian Toomes, the Vulture.
This is a huge revelation that Michelle is the daughter of the main villain of the film. This reminds of the first Spiderman film in 2002, Harry Osborne being friends with Peter but his father is the villain, the Green Goblin, which the end of that shapes the relationship between Harry and Peter through the trilogy. I would see a similar thing happening here, the Vulture gets prisoned or possibly killed by Spiderman, and Michelle develops a hate towards the web shooter. but still remains friends with Peter.
This could happen, it would spice up the on-screen relationship between Michelle and Peter, but at the same time why reuse the same plot points. The story could take a different turn and Michelle helps Peter take down her father as we do not know the relationship between the father and daughter.
Anyway, I am excited for this, I was kind of upset that this rumor leaked, it would have been an awesome reveal in the film, but that's the internet for us. So comment below your thoughts on this leak on Zendaya's charter in Spiderman Homecoming. As always thanks for reading, take care.
