19-year-old singer/actress Zendaya has landed the female lead in Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios Spider-Man reboot.

Zendaya, former star of the Disney Channel’s Shake It Up! and K.C. Undercover, was among the first actresses who have been quietly testing for roles in the film.

She will reportedly play a character named Michelle opposite Tom Holland (The Impossible) as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Marisa Tomei as Aunt May.

In the comics and previous film adaptations Daily Bugle photog Peter Parker only has eyes for Mary Jane Watson after the death of Gwen Stacy, but this new version focuses on Parker as a young high school student. It’s unknown if Michelle will be his first crush/romantic interest.

Marvel’s Spider-Man will be directed by Jon Watts, director of Cop Car. Marvel’s Kevin Feige is producing the superhero movie in partnership with Sony executive/producer Amy Pascal.

Marvel’s Spider-Man is set for release on July 28, 2017 in conventional theaters, 3D and IMAX.
