Zendaya Coleman

Zendaya scores again!

The Disney Channel star and 2015 EBONY Power 100 honoree, will take on the role of Mary Jane Watson in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming film.



For those unfamiliar with the character, Mary Jane Watson is the red-headed long-time love interest of Peter Parker (Spider-Man). The multi-talented entertainer landed the gig back in March but it was only teased that she would have a “key role” in the movie.

While she’s receiving much applause for her next move, some folks are stuck on the fact that the FICTIONAL character was once portrayed as a red-headed White girl. A 140-character discussion about it took place on Twitter, Thursday night.
