Coming at you with some comic book movie news. The Wrap has learned what role Zendaya will play in the upcoming Spider-Man Homecoming. She will be playing Mary Jane Watson, Peter Parker’s longtime love interest. I’m honestly excited to see her play Mary Jane.
I know comic fans are going to be upset Mary Jane isn’t white. We’ve seen this behavior with Iris West, Johnny Storm, Heimdall and recently Deadshot but those have turned out good. Okay, maybe not Johnny but he wasn’t the worse thing about that movie. Look, the point comic fans, movies are going to change things for the mass appeal. Mary Jane doesn’t belong to just you, just like every comic character. So once you realize that, I’m sure you’ll get over this pretty quickly.
That said sound off down below and let me know what you think. I plan on going more in depth about this next week. Until then, I’m XBen3000 and I’m out!
