Zendaya Says Her Spider-Man: Homecoming Character Is ‘Super Dry And Awkward’ — Just Like Her

Zendaya tells MTV News why Spider-Man has often been her favorite superhero. (Hint: It may have one thing to do with her initial date.)

Peter Parker 3. (Tom Holland) took the stage at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday to debut a first look at Spider-Man: Homecoming, Marvel Studios and Sony’s upcoming Spidey film. Joining Holland on stage have been teenage Peter’s high school friends and enemies, played by Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, and Tony Revolori. The film will follow Peter as he starts to balance his newfound, net-slinging superhero identity with being a 15-year-old kid.

According to Zendaya, that’s precisely what makes Spider-Man her favourite superhero. “Spider-Man has always been my favored… due to the fact he’s usually been the realest and the coolest,” Zendaya told MTV News’s Josh Horowitz following the Marvel presentation. “He’s a actual kid. He’s typical, and he’s living his life and trying to discover and recognize what it’s like to be a human becoming increasing up — although simultaneously saving the globe.”

Of course Zendaya’s connection to Spidey goes even deeper than that. “My first date I ever went on was to Spider-Man,” she mentioned, presumably referring to the Andrew Garfield starrer, The Remarkable Spider-Man. “It’s particular. I went when I just turned 16, lastly was allowed to date. It was my 1st date, and it was to see Spider-Man. So full circle!”

The Homecoming footage shown at Comic-Con has yet to be released, but these who were in attendance have described it as John Hughes meets Freaks and Geeks. Zendaya’s character in distinct appears to be channeling Linda Cardellini’s Lindsay Weir as Peter’s friend who may possibly or may possibly not be crushing on him.

“Absolutely everyone, honestly, is so significantly like their characters,” Zendaya said. “My character is super dry and awkward. It is fantastic because it’s who I am in actual life, so I do not really feel like I have to act also much.”

Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7, 2017.
