If you have taken time to watch Spider-Man: Homecoming, you will quite agree that this is probably one of the best productions in the movie industry. The twists in events lead to the movie ending in quite a surprising note.
The academic decathlon team of Peter Parker is depicted making preparations to move into the next year and it asks Michelle to lead it. The observant girl is willing to give in to the demand, but she cites a condition. Her news friends have to first of all get used to referring to her as ‘MJ’, which makes fans go wild.
Some people may wonder why the name ‘MJ’ in particular. It shouldn’t elude anyone’s understanding that MJ is indeed the other name for the greatest love interests of Spider-Man. In as much as Michelle may be no Mary Jane, the fans following the unfolding are left asking themselves a lot of questions. They are left guessing whether or not Zendaya’s character will become the future wife of Peter Parker.
Some of the top producers of the film according to Comicbook have given their word in line with this. They have taken the strong stand that Michelle won’t necessarily align to the same path Mary Jane is usually known to move in the comics.
Kevin Feige and Sony’s Amy Pascal happened to be the first ones to make their comments in relation to the role of the actress. A number of top news reporters went after the president of Marvel Studios to get his word in relation to the matter. He commented saying that the ‘twist’ was drafted to become more of homage.
While clearing the air around the matter, Pascal said, “We never even looked at it as a big reveal necessarily but more of just a fun homage to his past adventures and his past love. She was always this new high school character, Michelle, who we know there’s an “M” in Michelle and an “M” in Mary.” He acknowledged that there were big reveals in the movie, but this one wasn’t one of them. They simply thought of it as a clever move to nickname her MJ.
