Spider-Man director confirms Zendaya character name

Being portrayed by Tom Holland, many fans believe that it's the best portrayal of Spider-Man we have seen on the big screen, and he was only in the film for at least 30 minutes.

Tom Holland is officially Spider-Man!

Perhaps Spider-Man could be the missing link between the Avengers and the Defenders. The character has already been featured in live-action films, including "Spider-Man 3" and "The Amazing Spider-Man".

Tony Revolori plays Flash. "I don't care what you do".

In the comics, Michele is Peter's roommate, and the sister of Officer Vin Gonzales. She was then revealed in the novel to be the wife of Harry Osborn in the near future, and is the stepsister to the supervillain The Molten Man. As a high school student played by Laura Harrier (bottom), it's unlikely the latter portion will come into play, but I wouldn't be surprised if she was Flash Thompson's girlfriend in the movie. Jacob Batalon has been cast as Ned Leeds but the character is now Peter's classmate instead of an older co-worker.

The character from the early comics was a geeky, socially inept high school loser struggling to make sense of his place in the world. Maybe they even work for the high school newspaper together. "We just started shooting, we should actually be shooting right now probably", he said, when asked if he'd brought any footage with him.

So there you have it. While director Jon Watts wouldn't confirm if Michael Keaton is playing the villain Vulture, which has always been rumored, the director did have this to say about why he's the flawless villain for this movie, which has been described as an "all-out high school movie". While director Jon Watts revealed the identities of four characters during Marvel Studios' SDCC panel in Hall H on Saturday, he failed to confirm whether or not Michael Keaton is Vulture. This could also fit with another rumour, namely that in Spider-Man: Homecoming the Vulture's flight suit is based on tech left behind by aliens the Chitauri after their battle with the Avengers in NY.

Aside from Robert Downy Jr.'s patronage, the strong cast that made the plot interesting also includes Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Tony Revolori, Logan Marshall-Green and "Nice Guys Breakout" actress Angourie Rice.
