Zendaya has made history at the Primetime Emmy Awards by becoming the youngest two-time acting winner. She claimed her second Drama Actress award for her role as the stumbling, recovering drug addict Rue in HBO’s teen drama Euphoria

Ever since the 26-year-old broke into the scene with Spiderman: Homecoming in 2017, the movie star has kept herself busy. In a short span of time, she starred in a variety of films from The Amazing Showman in 2017 to Euphoria to two other Spiderman movies. The star actress also had a role in the sci-fi epic Dune: Part I as Chani despite not getting too much screen time.

Euphoria: Season 3

The last season of HBO’s second most-watched TV show of all time according to Variety saw Zendaya’s character Rue planning to stay sober the rest of the school year and making amends with her friends. The new season can be expected in 2023 or at least by early 2024. 


A romantic drama in the world of tennis that is being directed by Luca Guadagnino of Call me By Your Name fame. Zendaya is set to play Tashi, a player-turned-coach who trains her husband Art to become the world’s next tennis legend. She convinces him to play in the Challenger event, which is close to pro-level tennis. Conflict arises when he is forced to face off against her ex-boyfriend and his former best friend, Patrick.

Finest Kind

Directed by Brian Helgeland the plot revolves around two brothers who find themselves entangled in a life of crime with a Boston crime syndicate, according to Screen Rant. While it is unclear what role Zendaya will play, the film stars Jake Gyllenhall and Ansel Elgort, so it stands to reason that she might be related to one of the characters somehow.

Not much is known about this film, except that it is being directed by legendary filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola of The Godfather fame. He’s not known to make mistakes, especially considering Zendaya has worked with the talented Dennis Villeneuve. 

The plot of the film revolves around an architects desire to build a utopia, a place where people can do what they want, how they want to. 

A White Lie

The 26-year-old plays the role of Anita Hemmings, in this historical drama. The plot follows Hemmings, the biracial woman to graduate from Vassar College in New York. The story goes that Hemmings convinced the notoriously tough admissions board that she was white just to get admitted, according to Screen Rant.

Zendaya will be starring and producing the film. She has teamed up with Reese Witherspoon’s media brand Hello Sunshine to bring the film to theatres.

Be My Baby

The biopic will have Zendaya play the role of the late Ronnie Spector, the former lead singer of The Ronettes. The film is being produced by A24 studio, which released critically acclaimed films like The Lighthouse, Midsommar, The Witch and The Killing of a Sacred Deer. 

Given the nature of the film, it’s likely that there will be music of some kind in the film, which Zendaya has shown she is capable of handling, if her performance in The Greatest Showman is anything to go off of. The film gives Zendaya a chance to show off her acting chops, given that the lives of Ronnie Spector and her husband Phil Spector was wilder than fiction.

Dune: Part Two

The Dennis Villeneuve directed sci-fi epic has fans of the Dune series eagerly awaiting the next one. Part Two will have Zendaya in a substantially more important role compared to Part I where she mostly appeared in dream sequences. 

If Villeneuve stays faithful to the 1965 book like he did in Part I, movie goers are in for a treat. Zendaya isn’t likely to disappoint in a sci-fi epic, given that she’s already dealt with the genre to some extent in the Spiderman series.
