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.
