Zendaya = Mary Jane?


Rumor has it  that Disney star Zendaya will be playing Mary Jane Watson in the new Spider-Man: Homecoming movie. This has the internet in an uproar because Miss Zendaya is not white. I can’t wrap my head around this shit. Not the casting, I’m sure she will do better that that awful Kirsten Dunst if the rumor is even true, I mean the straight-up racism. Why/how does it matter what race MJ is?!  If thats enough to make you boycott this movie then maybe comicbook movies where Good triumphs over Evil are not for you.
On the upside many distinguishable Marvel writers/directors have jumped on board defending the fact that these roles can belong to anyone. Come on people, get your acts together! Welcome to 2016.
