Yesterday, Zendaya herself told us that she would not be Peter Parker’s love interest in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Now, it appears we may now know who will be filing that role. In a report from LRM, it is stated that Liz Allen will in fact be the love interested in the film. Liz Allen will be played by Laura Harrier.
Liz Allen, while not as popular or well known as Gwen Stacy or Mary Jane Watson, has been a love interest for young Peter Parker in the past. In the original comics, Peter had a crush on Liz, but Liz was romantically involved with Flash Thompson, who we already know will be in the film.
As we march closer and closer to the release, it seems that we are finally getting to know and understand a bit more information on who exactly everyone is playing in the movie.
What do you think about this report? How do you feel about Liz Allen being Peter’s love interest this time around? Sound off in the comments below and on social media!
