    Well, now we might actually have a lead on who she's playing. AND GUESS WHAT? THERE'S A NICE CHANCE SHE'S PLAYING MARY JANE WATSON, AKA ONE OF THE MOST WELL-KNOWN CHARACTERS IN THE SPIDEY-VERSE.

    The Wrap reported Thursday that "at least one recent draft of the script has Zendaya’s character dropping several clues to her identity as Mary Jane." So keep that grain of salt, but pile LOTS OF HOPE ON TOP OF IT.

    Yes, we're talking about this Mary Jane.

    Even if it pans out that she's not playing Mary Jane exactly – Deadline reported back in March that Zendaya's character would be named Michelle – you know she's gonna be the best part of this movie.

    We already know she and Tom Holland are a DREAM TEAM, after all.
