Both Zendaya and Holland are gearing up for the release of the third Spider-Man film, Spider-Man: No Way Home later this year. Set to also bring back fan favorites from previous iterations of the comic book series, the film also stars  Jamie Foxx as Electro, Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus, and more.

The first trailer for the film dropped last week and featured plenty of heartwarming scenes between Holland and Zendaya, theGrio previously reported.

Zendaya is also busy filming the long-awaited second season of the hit HBO series, Euphoria. On her Instagram story, she revealed she was spending her birthday on set. She wrote to her followers, “No place I’d rather spend my bday…20 more mins,” before tagging the official Euphoria account.

Zendaya made history as the youngest to ever win Outstanding Actress in a Drama award at the Emmys for her role in Euphoria, theGrio previously reported. During the virtual ceremony due to the COVID-19 pandemic, she used her speech to share a little hope, saying, “I know that this feels like a really weird time to be celebrating, but I just want to say that there is hope in the young people out there.”

She continued, “I know that our TV show doesn’t always feel like a great example of that, but there is hope in the young people, and I just want to say to all my peers out there doing the work in the streets: I see you, I admire you, I thank you.”
