Zendaya Isn't In 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' As Much As You Think She Is

It looks like Zendaya might not be in Spider-Man: Homecoming as much as we’d like her to be.

In a new piece on Vulture, it’s revealed that the time she’s spent on press tours is more than her presence in the actual movie.

Yes, we know the film isn’t about her character Michelle — the focus is on Peter (Tom Holland), and his journey to how he’s going to be the Spider-Man the world needs him to be.

“She is not present for most of the movie’s major scenes or action set pieces, has no bearing on the plot, and disappears for wide swaths of the film,” the piece reveals. “Spider-Man never saves her, and Peter Parker never kisses her: In fact, he barely seems to know she exists.”

But don’t fear, there’s a silver lining…sort of.

“Near the end of the movie, enough has happened to suggest that Zendaya’s role in the sequel might be commensurate with the part she plays in promoting this franchise,” the piece reveals.

The sequel is about two years away, so we do have to wait a while for that.

JJJ will still be in the theater to see this movie though. Will you be going?

    Sounds skippable to me. I would go for Z – not for the third re-boot of a movie that was so iconic it should never have been re-booted.
