The 26-year-old actress, Zendaya portrayed the role of Michelle Jones-Watson, better known as MJ, in the Spider-Man films alongside Tom Holland who played the titular character.

Talking with Variety three years ago, she opened up about her working experience in the MCU. She was content with being a part of her debut Marvel film even though she knew her part was not big in the first film. However, she shared about being lucky as


“They already kind of wanted to re-create the character and turn her into a new version of what I think maybe the original Mary Jane character represented, and just do it in our own way in this Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

Comparing her time at her other hit show, Euphoria, she stated,

“It’s massive. It’s very different from ‘Euphoria,’ where it’s close and you have more time. Whereas on something like “Spider-Man,” it’s such a huge thing.”

She knew that her work in the superhero franchise is entirely different from the ones she has been working on yet. However, it was overwhelming for her as she did not have much idea about the film she was working on, due to MCU’s famous technique.

Being one of the biggest superhero franchises in the world, it is bound to keep several things under wraps to avoid leaks. She continued,

“And there’s so many secrets, and half of the script you can’t even read because there’s too many spoilers for, at the time, ‘Endgame’ and all these other things.”

There are times when scripts would get edited or major information is missing to avoid any spoilers.

“It’s like, you don’t really know what you’re doing.It’s just so big that you’re like, ‘I’m just going to figure it out as I go.'”

Given the fact that the spoilers could end up hinting at something important to their projects, the franchise tries its best to conceal major details from its actors. Meanwhile, a fourth sequel to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man film series is in development.
