Contrary to several reports of the actress landing a lead role, The Hollywood Reporter says "it's not a lead role."  According to Borys of THR, the casting is part of Marvel's intention to go heavily non-white with the "Spider-Man" supporting cast.

Zendaya is joining Academy Award-winning actress Marisa Tomei, who is set to star as "Aunt May," the adoptive mother of Peter Parker.
