So this rumor has been floating around and I’m gonna be honest I actually really like the Idea. I’m not really sure why but it would be interesting to see it just from a film perspective. I’m not sure it would be great from the spiderman perspective since I feel people often portray MJ as Gwen’s replacement but it could be cool to see peter struggling to find love after Gwen’s death and learning to come to terms fully with falling for MJ and yet being reminded of Gwen and struggling with all that but slowly realizing that MJ isn’t Gwen’s replacement and that he can move on. But yeah I think it would actually be a pretty fun if done well
it would not be interesting on any perspective. please read this.
Alright so this has been a no so far and I’m thinking maybe that’s true for spiderman at least. I thought it would be interesting to portray exactly the opposite using this means though. I was thinking more along the lines of using it to convey that it was the people inside who matter and that they would use make up and it was supposed to imply that peter was projecting Gwen onto MJ and we would watch in slight horror as we noticed this but slowly peter would realize that MJ isn’t Gwen and she would prevail as a strong character. I guess I’m think it would just be a cool film choice to show an actual connection to the girl he just lost and how her death affects him. I feel like it’s to often glossed over in these stories and I just think it would be an interesting idea to have peter trying to fill in the hole Gwen left with MJ and realizing just how wrong that is and that you can’t just swap one out for the other. That MJ is her own person and throughout the movie she would begin to resemble Gwen less as peter realized this. ?
i understand you’re trying to be artsy about this or something, but it’s just wrong on so many levels. MJ is her own character. she has her own story arcs. she is a huge character. she has a large fan base. she is not gwen whatsoever. having the same actress is a slap to the face and would not only disrespect the character entirely, because she is so much more than peter’s love interest to cause him pain and happiness/shows what comes after ~*gwen*~, but it’s saying women are easily replaced.
i am personally offended ppl think this is a good idea. mary jane deserves to have so much more than what the irrational gwen (aka emma stone) fans give her.
Alright you are correct. It would probably be a bad choice for the spiderman movie. And don’t think I dislike Mary Jane I very much enjoy MJ’s and think she has a powerful important place in the story, I’m just open to changing and evolving characters in a movie form. I’m sure that this all isn’t gonna happen because honestly it’s just too ridiculous for a studio to consider.
