Is Zendaya About to Boost Her Net Worth With ‘Dune’ and ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’?

Since making her Marvel debut in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Zendaya has become a household name. Since becoming the M.J. to Tom Holland’s Peter Parker, she’s gone on to headline HBO’s Euphoria, make a dramatic impact with Netflix’s Malcolm & Marie, and play basketball with Bugs Bunny in Space Jam: A New Legacy. Her late 2021 projects like Dune and Spider-Man: No Way Home promise to catapult her to even greater fame. With that in mind, what is Zendaya’s net worth in 2021 and how does it stand to change moving into 2022?

Zendaya has appeared in a number of blockbuster films prior to 2021, including the first two Spider-Man movies to take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, the 25-year-old star will likely gain even more traction during the latter half of 2021. That’s because she plays a prominent role in two of the biggest feature films slated for the year: Dune and Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Dune hit theaters on Oct. 22, and Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of the classic science-fiction novel is one of the most-anticipated releases of 2021. Zendaya plays Chani in the film, the Fremen woman Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) keeps dreaming about.

Zendaya will also reprise her role as M.J. in Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is shaping up to be Marvel’s biggest release since Avengers: Endgame. Needless to say, it’s been a busy year for the actor, who also voiced Lola Bunny in Lebron James’ Space Jam: A New Legacy. With all these major projects, it’s probably safe to assume Zendaya’s net worth has increased.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Zendaya has an estimated net worth of $15 million. That’s no small achievement for a star her age. And since she boasted the same number back in 2020, fans can expect it to grow after her work on Dune and Spider-Man: No Way Home. In fact, Zendaya’s net worth jumped by about $10 million from 2019 to 2020 alone. She could see a similar boost following the release of both films.

Although Zendaya doesn’t play a huge role in Dune, Showbiz Galore reports an estimated salary of $300,000 for her work on the film. That doesn’t account for any deals she could have made to gain a cut of the box-office earnings. Spider-Man: No Way Home will increase her annual salary even further, especially if she gets a percentage of how much it makes in theaters.

It seems certain Zendaya will be worth even more than $15 million by the time Dune and Spider-Man: No Way Home make the rounds. But what else can fans of the star expect heading into 2022?

Sadly, Zendaya and several other Spider-Man cast members hinted that Spider-Man: No Way Home could mark the end of Spidey’s MCU trilogy. It’s unclear if the film is truly the last time fans will see these characters or if they’re simply entering a new stage of their story.

What does seem likely is Zendaya returning for Part Two of Dune. Although Warner Bros. Pictures hasn’t officially greenlit another chapter of Villeneuve’s project, it’s clear the director has plans to continue the story. Given where the first film leaves off, Chani is likely to play a bigger role in a second installment.

Euphoria Season 2 is also happening, so Zendaya will be back for that. Her performance as Rue is always worth watching, and that’s unlikely to change anytime soon.

With so many exciting things on the horizon, Zendaya’s net worth will probably continue its upward swing. It’s a great time to be a fan of the star. She’s in just about everything.
