Zendaya, 27, is becoming a mother. The Marvel Cinematic Universe star will play a mother in Challengers, a Luca Guadagnino sports drama, for the first time.
In Challengers, Zendaya plays the wife and coach of a Tennis Grand Slam champion (Josh O'Connor), who forms a romantic and sexual triangle by signing her husband up to play a previous lover (Mike Faist). Based on the visuals published, the Luca Guadagnino film will take place in steamy places.
Zendaya tells Josh O'Connor, "You weren't there," in Empire. It was a hotel scene between Tashi and Art. The first day was, ‘You're a married couple with a kid.’ Okay. Alright.
