The former Disney star will reportedly take on the role of Mary Jane Watson in the upcoming “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” according to The Wrap.

The character is familiar to viewers of the 2002 to 2007 Sam Raimi trilogy, which starred starring Tobey Maguire as the titular character and Kirsten Dunst as love interest Mary Jane.

The 19-year-old’s casting in the Sony superhero reboot was announced in March but her part was kept  tightly under wraps. She was originally simply said to be playing a character named Michelle.
