Zendaya Is Mary Jane In Spider-Man: Homecoming
In this nerd’s opinion, Marvel pussied out by making the now-third iteration of Spider-Man Peter Parker instead of Miles Morales. It was chicken-shit, and before you think you’re saying something clever like, “How’d that work out for Fantastic Four?” that was Fox not Marvel, and you’d know that if you stopped having an active sex life. – *pets comic books* Shh, shh, Daddy didn’t mean it. – But according to The Wrap, Marvel and Sony have taken a quasi-bold stance and switched up Spider-Man’s girlfriend by casting Zendaya as Mary Jane Watson, which naturally caused reactions like this, so already I’m on board:
Since Mary Jane is being played by a Black woman, can MLK be played by a White man in a next movie about him?

Let’s give Todd the floor:
If Mary Jane isn't white with red hair the whole story of a dude who gets bit by a magic spider then wears a leotard falls apart

In the meantime, DC is making some bold statements of its own by bringing back Superman’s spit-curl? Wow, that totally makes up for two and half hours of dour butthole where Superman sulks the entire time because Ghost Kevin Costner keeps telling him saving people is dumb. It’s all over for Marvel now. They should just stopping making movies.
“Mommy, can Superman be my boyfriend!”
“Haha, no, sweetie. He’s a grown-up.”
