Zendaya has just become the latest actress to join the Marvel universe.

The 19-year-old star has been cast as a mysterious new character in the newest Spider-Man film. While plot and character details are being kept under wraps, Deadline reports that Zendaya will play a key role in the film and will be starring alongside Tom Holland.

Also according to the site,  it’s unlikely that the actress will be playing a romantic role, such as one of Peter Parker’s famous girlfriends. The character’s name is believed to be Michelle.

While Deadline is reporting that Zendaya’s character will be a lead role, Variety is reporting that she will not be a lead in the film but may have a bigger part in future installments.

While the actress has built her career on Disney Channel by starring in programs Shake It Up! and K.C. Undercover, the actress has been recently dabbling in more adult roles, including appearances on Dancing With the Stars and a guest starring gig on Black-ish.

Produced by Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige, the yet-to-be-titled Spider-Man reboot will be released July 7, 2017.
