With less than a month before the release of the newest version of the “Spider-Man” franchise and Zendaya is busy promoting the film. The actress appeared on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday to once again tell fans that she is not Mary Jane Watson and reveal her deeper connection with the film.
“I keep trying to tell everybody my name is Michelle, in the movie, that is what my name is,” the Disney star swore. “She’s bit of a loner, but I think she likes it that way,” Zendaya added about her character that she continues to say is not actually Mary Jane. Alhough the actress isn’t playing Spidey’s love interest in the film, Zendaya revealed that she had her own love connection involving the superhero.
“My first date was to ‘Spider-Man’ and I was obsessed with it immediately,” Zendaya admitted. “He’s a real person, right? He’s not just a superhero all the time. He’s, at the end of the day, Peter Parker who is a 15-year-old kid.”
