Zendaya Loves That 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Celebrates Diversity

If there’s one thing about Spider-Man: Homecoming that star Zendaya loves, it’s the diversity.

The actress, who plays Michelle in the upcoming flick, spoke with EW about her new movie and how it celebrates diversity.

“That was one of my favorite parts about this movie is the diversity of the cast. It’s reflecting what New York looks like,” she shared. “It should be represented in that way.”

“I think everybody is also very distinct characters and it’s fun to see how everybody works with each other, and I love the awkwardness and the funny that comes out of those real moments in high school that we’ve all been through,” Zendaya added. “The big difference with this movie is the fact that he’s 15 and you really get to see what it would be like if a 15-year-old guy had these powers.”

She continued, “Of course, they’re not going to do everything right. They’re not going to be perfect. They’re going to mess up. They’re going to be a 15-year-old superhero; and I think they did a really great job of capturing that because that’s what makes Spider-Man so real for everybody is that he’s just a kid and just a kid from Queens.”
