Jon Watts has revealed the first names of Peter Parker’s classmates in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Watts, who is directing the Sony-produced MCU film, told EW that Zendaya plays a character named Michelle, Tony Revolori plays Flash, Laura Harrier plays Liz and Jacon Batalon plays Ned in the film.

Most notable among those is Flash, which makes him very likely to be Flash Thompson, one of the students who bullied Peter but admires Spider-Man. He eventually becomes a superhero in his own right in the comics, Agent Venom. Harrier’s Liz, meanwhile, is said to be Liz Allan, who Peter has a crush on.

The film also stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Donald Glover, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr. It releases on July 7th, 2017.
