Zendaya is Set to Return as MJ in ‘Spider-Man 3.’ Tom Holland shares that Zendaya is signed on to appear as MJ in the third installment of the Spider-Man franchise.
The cast is very excited to see how audiences react to where the MCU is going and with the future of the franchise hanging in the balance, it’s refreshing to see the stars of the film eager to share the ever growing story of their characters with fans.
“In the first movie obviously you didn’t get to see much of her [MJ], but she was like a very guarded, sarcastic, character and I think you get to see why she has that guard, and slowly watch her melt a little bit,” Zendaya shared last year.
The films lead, Tom Holland can’t wait to get back in the spider suit.
“I’m super happy about it. We will beshootingSpider-Man 3in July in Atlanta,” Holland explained, saying thatthe film’s story is “absolutely insane.”
The film has seen its set backs, including rocky future after negotiations between Sony and Marvel initially ended poorly and it was shared that Spider-man would no longer be a part of the MCU. Luckily, with the backlash by fans and help from Tom Holland himself, the studios renegotiated and agreed to creating more Spider-Man films together and keep Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“It’s not the end of me playing Spider-Man,” Holland saidcalming fans at Keystone Comic Con last year. “There’s definitely more to come. We sat down with some of our creatives. We pitchedSpider-Man3, which is going to be something very special, it’s going to be something very different. I’m just so grateful that Marvel changed my life and allowed my dreams to come true and Sony allowing me to continue living my dream. It’s a crazy week and it’s never been done before so we’ll see how it goes and it’ll be as amazing and as fun.”
We can’t wait to see Spider-Man swing back in theaters in July 2021 and are glad to know the cast is ready to get started with filming this summer.
