Zendaya Says Her SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Character Is Not A Love-Interest

According to Zendaya, she's not playing a love interest in Spider-Man: Homecoming and the characters/roles listed on the daily call sheets were frequently changed to purposely throw off bloggers.

Is Zendaya playing Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man: Homecoming? Or is she playing Michelle Gonzales?  Back in August, The Wrap and Vulture both reported that Zendaya would actually be playing Tom Holland's love interest in the Jon Watts directed pic, and it was said Watson's role was meant to be a major reveal/plot twist in the film.  However, the actress/singer has given a recent interview to The Hollywood Reporter, seemingly debunking that report.  "People are going to react over anything.  But nothing [about my role] is fact. It’s like, you guys are just making s#^t up at this point and then reacting to it. Whenever we were on set, one of us gets some random character name [on the call sheet]. [Bloggers were] like, 'Oh they must be so and so.' And we just crack up about it, because it’s like, 'Whatever you want to think. You’ll find out.' It’s funny to watch the guessing game."

In examining her statement, it appears that Watts applied a little subterfuge to the call sheet, listing different characters each day just in cast the information ever leaked [which it did - see reports on the Shocker].  So could rumors that Zendaya is playing MJW be attributed to the fact that she was apparently listed as a different character on each daily call sheet?  

Zendaya would go on to add, "My character is not romantic.  My character is like very dry, awkward, intellectual and because she’s so smart, she just feels like she doesn’t need to talk to people, like 'My brain is so far ahead of you that you’re just not really on my level.' So she comes off very weird. But to me, she is very cool because she’s deep. She’s always thinking about something, always reading."

Spider-Man: Homecoming will be released on July 7, 2017.
