While we knew Zendaya would be starring in the new Spider-Man reboot, her character has remained up wraps until now. While attending the film’s Comic-Con panel, it was revealed Daya will star as Michelle, one of Spider-Man’s teenage friends in the movie.

"My character is super dry and awkward, Daya told MTV. “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 19-year-old has been a Spider-Man fan since she was a little girl. Not only that, she revealed just how deep her connection to the superhero really is telling MTV,

"My first date I ever went on was to Spider-Man. It's special. I went when I just turned 16, finally was allowed to date. It was my first date and it was to see Spider-Man. So full circle!"

Zoe Saldana -- looking MILFy in all black -- was also on the Comic-Con scene for her upcoming movie, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. She’ll be reprising her role from the original flick.

While the new mom has been busy working on several new projects since giving birth to her twins Cy & Bowie, the Hollywood actress revealed last week that she has the autoimmune disease Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, requiring her to eat a gluten- and dairy-free diet.

Oscar nominated actor Chiwetel Ejiofor hit the stage to dish on Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange, where he will star as supervillain Baron Karl Mordo.

According to IMDB, "Doctor Strange" follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City's Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilising a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.
