From her days on the Disney Channel to her superhero roles, Zendaya has demonstrated her versatility as an actress. With a continually evolving career, the singer/actress has collaborated with a number of reputable directors.
In the film Challengers, Zendaya portrays Tashi, a world-famous tennis player who challenges her spouse Art (Mike Faist) to a “Challenger” match, which is a tournament below the professional level.
Much like Skins and Kids, Euphoria offers an uncensored view of the dark things teens get up to. It might seem nihilistic at times, but with one in five teens struggling with mental health issues and adolescents living in an increasingly tumultuous world, it’s only realistic to present this kind of content. The cast is also excellent, with standout performances from Sydney Sweeney as Cassie, a girl who struggles with her sexual desires, and Barbie Ferreira as Kat, a plus-sized beauty who discovers sexual empowerment online.
But perhaps the most intriguing part of this teen drama is its soundtrack, which features a number of contemporary hip-hop artists and rappers. The music, along with the show’s cinematography and costumes, helps to create a moody and edgy atmosphere. And, of course, it’s a great way to hear Zendaya sing. She has a terrific voice and really makes her character’s struggle feel real.
2. The Greatest Showman
The Greatest Showman is a lavish and dazzling production that captures the sense of wonder that audiences felt at Barnum’s mesmerizing shows. It features a dazzling cast of actors, including Hugh Jackman, Academy Award nominee Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, and Rebecca Ferguson. It also boasts an iconic soundtrack that will be stuck in your head for days. It’s a bit overwrought at times, but its exuberant energy and dazzling choreography make it hard to resist.
Zendaya will next be seen in the sports drama Challengers, which is set to hit theaters this September. The Luca Guadagnino-directed movie follows a pair of former tennis stars and their complex love triangle that spans years. Her co-stars include Mike Faist (West Side Story) as Art, a tennis player turned coach, and Josh O’Connor as his former best friend and boyfriend. The flixtor film explores the complexities of professional and personal relationships while touching on the lingering effects of teenage love.
Zendaya opened and closed the movie as Chani, a Fremen warrior whose fate is intertwined with Paul Atreides. Although her character only has a few lines of dialogue, she is a key element of the story and brings an irresistible blend of sweetness and fierceness to her character.
It’s not surprising that fans were enamored with her performance. Her beauty and charisma are unmatched. But it is her talent as an actress that truly makes her shine. Whether she’s playing a superhero, an aspiring singer or a mysterious desert warrior, Zendaya always delivers a captivating performance.
In addition to this upcoming project, Zendaya is also set to star in the upcoming Dune sequel. She is expected to play a major role in the sequel, which will continue with the mythic journey of Paul Atreides as he unites with Chani to avenge his family and save the universe. The film will also feature Lea Seydoux, Austin Butler, Florence Pugh and Christopher Walken.
4. Malcolm & Marie
It seems like the writers of this film tried to address a lot of issues in one movie, but ended up only covering a fraction of them. The film was a waste of the talents of the two leading actors, as well as the beautiful scenery and black-and-white cinematography. It was also a waste of the time and resources that were put into making it.
Despite the fact that the film is flawed, it does show a different side of Zendaya’s acting abilities. She has proved that she is a talented actress who can act in both comedy and drama films. The Greatest Showman, Dune, and Malcolm & Marie are all great examples of this. If you have any doubts about her acting skills, then you should definitely watch these movies to see that she can act in any genre of movie. It is clear that Zendaya has taken a huge step up from her Disney beginnings and is now a fully-fledged actor.
