& they are for EVERYONE.
There's nothing about Peter Parker or Mary Jane
that HAS to be white.
Zendaya is the first black woman to star in the Spider-Man series AND she's going to play Mary Jane. I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO HAPPY— stef (@RUNNINGONRlVER) August 18, 2016
However, many on Twitter were ready to respond to the trolling, with one in particular delivering a “drop the mic” worthy tweet. https://twitter.com/Todd_J/status/766444671421874177 Spider-Man: Homecoming teams Zendaya with Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei, Donald Glover, and Robert Downey Jr. and is scheduled for release on July 7, 2017.
Nope. Still looks fuck all like MJ. Sorry, but MJ is a white red head. Why can't we just keep characters the same?— Matt Blake (@mattblake94) August 19, 2016
