Challengers, which is set to be released on April 26th, follows Tashi, a former tennis player turned coach, as she navigates the complicated love triangle between her husband (Mike Faist) and her former lover (Josh O’Connor) as they compete against each other in a tournament.

In an August 2023 interview with Elle, Zendaya revealed that this is her “first time really being a leading lady.”

“I felt like it was a good step into a more, I guess you could say, ‘grown-up’ role and into that next phase,” Zendaya told the publication. “It was a little bit scary to take on, which I think is a good feeling. To be like, ‘Ooh, can I do this?’ You could run from that feeling and stay safe and comfortable, or you can go, ‘You know what, f–k it.’”
