Well, I think it was always bound to happen—Tom Holland and Zendaya’s relationship has been confirmed with a steamy care make out caught by paparazzi. Let’s be real, ever since seeing the creative direction they took with Tom Holland’s nervous, nerdy, and yet interestingly charming Peter Parker and Zendaya’s woke, suave, and down to earth relatability, the chemistry between the two actors was too good just to be acting.
Besides, if there’s one MCU actor couple coming out of that series franchise as a successful romance, I hope it’ll be Tom Holland and Zendaya. Of course, Elizabeth Olsen and Chris Evans were a dreamy, adorable match, but Lizzie is engaged, and Chris Evans is in a relationship with a regular, ordinary citizen woman Lily James so those dreams are crushed.
Rumors of Holland and Zendaya in some sort of romantic relationship started back in 2017 when Spiderman: Homecoming first released. And Between the chemistry of the two actors, who could blame them? In 2019 they reprised their roles in 2019’s Spiderman: Far From Home and will also be reprising their roles for Spiderman: No Way Home, a highly anticipated Marvel movie that might see the return of Toby Maguire, Andrew Garfield and a slew of other former Spiderman cast from past trilogies.
Although there have been rumors since the two became costars on the Spiderman set, some outlets saying the two had gone on vacation back in 2017, Zendaya joked, saying, “Wait wait… my favorite is when it says we go on vacations together HA! I haven’t been on a vacation in years! Hbu?”
To which Holland responds, “Does the press tour count?”
