WHY CAN"T SPIDERMAN BE GAY?
“In an interview with Entertainment Weekly’s EW.com, Andrew Garfield offered that the initials "MJ” – short for Parker’s future love Mary Jane – don’t necessarily have to represent Mary Jane.
“I was kind of joking, but kind of not joking about MJ,” he said. "And I was like, ‘What if MJ is a dude?’ Why can’t we discover that Peter is exploring his sexuality? It’s hardly even groundbreaking! […] So why can’t he be gay? Why can’t he be into boys?”
That Garfield would support a gay Spider-Man is hardly surprising; the actor was very vocal in his support for same-sex marriage. “Of course I’m in favor of marriage equality. Same-sex couples should have the same rights as anybody else,” Garfield told The Times of London. “There is no argument against equality.”
As it turns out, however, Peter Parker will remain straight in the current series of Spider-Man films. “- Huff Post Gay.
