    • Glorious Sun August 19, 2016

      yes they will – good.

      • Native American Sister August 19, 2016

        Right. Because placing biracial girls in big budget movies is sooooo groundbreaking.

      • Hi Hater! August 19, 2016

        Biracial girls are also taking the roles of BLACK girls look at Alexandra Shipp Playing the role of Storm in X-Men where is from strong African roots… Oh well.

        I will never deminish the privilege that being light skinned asserts but it doesn’t make her any less “black”, especially by American standards. Instead of dividing ourselves, let’s support each other…

    I’m so over Spiderman, Superman, Batman…. Time for another super hero to have a feature film, not Spiderman for the 8th time. Talk about overkill.

  3. Mark111 /.\ August 19, 2016

    Lightskin girls are even taking the White girls roles. Hahahahaha!

  4. Blue August 19, 2016

    So is her character gonna be named mary jane or are they just gonna hint at it?

  5. Jason August 19, 2016

    I love Zendaya! She’s a great example for young women of color, and girls in general! Congrats to her! She’s certainly deserving.

    • Selenator August 19, 2016

      Lol, great example how? What does she do besides attend red carpets and take selfies? Even the Jenner girls do more.

  6. IloveD August 19, 2016

    She’s actually not playing Mary Jane . It was revealed at the press conference. She plays a small role in the first film but then her character gets bigger in future films , so I’m assuming she might even be a villain

  7. StarXavi August 19, 2016

    I was really hoping to see her play Felicia Hardy. I think she would be sicknin as Black Cat!!

  8. Selenator August 19, 2016

    Isn’t she suppose to be releasing an album or something? I always forget what she does because the only time I hear about her is what she worse on the red carpet. Anyways, this version of Spiderman will flop like the second reboot. I’m over Spiderman tbh.

  9. LadyS August 19, 2016

    Dear whites I know you all will be hating and I don’t give a f***.

  10. LadyS August 19, 2016

    I’m tired of white women and men.

  11. August 19, 2016

    gratz to her, thats huge.

  12. JOHNVIDAL August 19, 2016

    I´m still mad that Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone aren´t in these films anymore. They were perfect in the roles. Some real acting rare to see in this type of blockbusters. I just don´t care for another Spiderman. Plus that idea that Marvel will make it better is so tiring. No Marvel flick has moved me or anything. Over hype is crazy.

    • JOHNVIDAL August 19, 2016

      I fogot to say they are onto better things now anyway as expected. They will have great careers as respected actors. Many quality roles coming.

    • Blue Ivy Rod August 19, 2016

      I agree with you on Andre Garfield/ Emma Stone mash up. How about we do a Storm movie and have that woman in Sparkle ( the dark skin sister) play her? Or they could come out with a robin film (tim duncan)

  13. Liam August 20, 2016

    The Amazing Spiderman comics is epic…I prefer that universe!

  14. Stylequeen August 20, 2016

    I have never even heard zendaya before she used Taylor swift to boost her career then dropped her as soon as taylor swifts popularity went down and she seems so full of herself

  15. Now Reddish tran ivy blobukz Need UK timely Ukuyiji August 20, 2016

    Awesome what’s her character name if it not Mary Jane
