Zendaya Says Her 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Character Will Be 'Dry and Awkward'

Fans got a special glimpse at Spider-Man: Homecoming at San Diego Comic-Con when Englishman Tom Holland and crew debuted the first look on Saturday. Holland, who will play a 15-year-old Peter Parker, was joined by cast mates Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier and Tony Revolori, who make up the dynamic group of high schoolers Parker deals with every day.

When MTV caught up with Zendaya, she revealed a few key character traits about Peter's buddy Michelle. "Everyone, honestly, is so much like their characters," she said in the interview. "My character is super dry and awkward. It's great because it's who I am in real life, so I don't feel like I have to act too much."

The movie is still in production, and the footage that debuted at Comic-Con has yet to be released. But by the way Zendaya talks about it, Spider-Man as a teen is going to be just as cool as adult Spidey:

"Spider-Man has always been my favorite..because he's always been the realest and the coolest. He's a real kid. He's normal, and he's living his life and trying to discover and understand what it's like to be a human being growing up—while simultaneously saving the world."
