James Gunn Responds Further to Zendaya as Mary Jane Backlash

Zendaya has been almost confirmed for playing Spider-Man’s love interest Mary Jane in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming.

While this seems like it may be the case, the new casting has faced a lot of backlash due to the ethnical difference Zendaya would bring to the iconic Spider-Man love interest.

While a lot of this backlash is of pure ignorance, James Gunn took to social media to respond to the un-warranted backlash Zendaya has been receiving.

It looks like James Gunn even agrees with me as I have stated in previous posts, how Zendaya may even be the most matching Mary Jane to date.

James Gunn states,


“And, for the record, I think Zendaya even matches what I think of as MJ’s primary physical characteristics – she’s a tall, thin model – much more so than actresses have in the past.”

So what do you think? Does Zendaya have the looks to be the next Mary Jane?

I think you’d be crazy to say no!
