Meet the Amazing Women of Spider-Man: Homecoming
These amazing women got us hooked on Spider-Man.

Aside from the story and Tom Holland playing Spider-Man, what we loved most about Spider-Man: Homecoming is how it also introduced us to four amazing women.

Today, we're putting the spotlight on the women that surround Peter Parker and who we're also looking forward to seeing in the sequel. For sure, they'll be playing important roles in his life—both as a guy on the ground and as a superhero and part of the Avengers.

  1. Angourie Rice (Betty)

She may have played a minor role in the movie, but according to facts from the comics, we're surely going to see more of Betty in the movie because she is described as one of Peter Parker's first loves. As for Angourie's other projects, she's in the Sofia Coppola movie These Final Hours and is also currently working on the film adaptation of David Levithan's YA novel Every Day.

  1. Zendaya (Michelle or MJ)

When Zendaya's Spider-Man character was first revealed, we all got confused as to who Michelle is. Of course, it was revealed by the end of the movie that it's just short for MJ. She's been tagged as the new Mary Jane, adding some spunk to how we know Peter's leading ladies (Kirsten Dunst's Mary Jane and Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy).

Although she appears for only a few minutes (if you add up all of her appearances in the entire film), we're already loving Michelle and how she tends to light up the scene whenever she's on screen. Can't wait for the next Spider-Man movie? We feel the same way, too! Watch her next, for now, in The Greatest Showman and on Disney's KC Undercover.

  1. Laura Harrier (Liz)

Just like Peter, we instantly fell in love with academic decathlon team leader Liz, too. She's smart and she's strong-willed, what's not to love? That's why after the movie, we began stalking Laura on social media. The model-turned-actress revealed that Liz in Spider-Man is actually her biggest role to date. But she also appeared on the short-lived revival of the TV series One Life to Live in 2013.

  1. Marisa Tomei (May Parker)

Did you know that Marisa and Robert Downey Jr.'s chemistry was first spotted in the 1994 movie Only You? That's why we can't help but ship them (sorry, Gwyneth Paltrow!) when we first saw them in Captain America: Civil War.

But what we love most about her Aunt May is how strong she is, too, and how she's obviously raised Peter to be as tough as her. What we're looking forward to in the next Spider-Man movie? Her full reaction after seeing Peter in Spider-Man's costume. LOL!

Spider-Man: Homecoming is still showing in cinemas nationwide.
