MANILA – Liza Soberano vehemently denied that she recently got an offer from Marvel to play Mary Jane Watson in the upcoming “Spider-Man” movie.

Speaking to ABS-CBN News’ MJ Felipe before she left for Italy, Soberano clarified it was just her fans who suggested the idea.

“It’s not really an invitation. I think it was what the fans wanted lang, fans of Marvel. I think one of them is Pinay and parang she tweeted that, parang kung merong magiging Mary Jane Watson, she would want it to be me. All my fans started retweeting it and everything but wala naman po talagang invitation,” she said.

However, Soberano said she would feel honored if she does get an offer. “[Kung meron], I would love that. That would be a nice opportunity,” she said.

She also has the support of her rumored boyfriend, actor Enrique Gil.

“If it is a good opportunity para sa kanya, go na go ako. Tamang tama dahil 'yung mom niya, favorite superhero si Spider-Man,” he said.

Soberano is undeniably one of the prettiest faces on primetime TV today. On weekday nights, she plays Serena, the princess-like heir of one of Italy's most influential families, on "Dolce Amore."

In real life, however, Soberano is just a typical teen. Born to a Filipino father and American mother in the United States, she moved to the Philippines to live with her father's relatives when her parents separated.

She turned 18 years old last January.
