A/N: I can’t take credit for the plot because it was all
Okina’s (@gounderoos) idea! I honestly didn’t think I could write this out so fast, but it
was such an easy one to write for some reason. Enjoy!
Ever since you started having crushes in middle school, you
were open to having that innocent love that all your friends seemed to have.
However, you struggled and were never able to get to that level. As you got
older, you thought that love would come your way eventually, but it never did.
You attended homecoming and prom, third wheeling with your best friend and
boyfriend, who were always too kind to you and never made you feel awkward
about the situation. You were just unfortunate to be that person who was open
to dating, but no one ever approached you. You didn’t know why because you knew
you were a good person, more than average in appearance, you thought, and an
overall vibrant personality.

“So, is there any off-screen romance?” The interviewer raised her eyebrows with a smile on her face.
You laughed a bit, but your co-star answered for you. “No, no, we’re just friends.” Tom smiled.
The interviewer smiled. “The Tumblr fandom really seems to like the idea of the two of you together,” She smiled.
“Trust me; I’ve seen it,” You chuckled.
“Me too, she’s on Tumblr- a lot.” Tom smiled, and you nudged his side, causing both of you to laugh even more.
The interviewer smiled and continued with the interview. Lately, for the press tour, you and Tom have done a lot of interviews together. Tom being the star, and you being the leading female for the new Spider-Man movie, it was obvious why you two did so many interviews together.
And no matter how many times you and Tom were asked about romance, it was always that you were friends. And it wasn’t a lie; you two didn’t really think about dating. It was your job as actors to be able to play the part like you were dating, but in reality, you actually weren’t.

So I’ve been reading the classic Amazing Spider-Man comics for about 2 or 3 years now on my Marvel Unlimited service, and over time I have grown more and more fond of Mary Jane Watson’s character. I just finished issue #259, and I am now completely amazed that this character is so commonly shrugged off as a cheap replacement for Gwen Stacy, and is regarded as the weaker character. I beg to differ. Unlike Gwen Stacy and other love interests, she has interesting flaws, a rich backstory, and much more history with Peter Parker, which in my opinion makes her the best love interest in the story.
When we first meet MJ, she is certainly this silly, over-the-top, stereotypically attractive and fun-loving person. And I think that this first impression may have been what doomed her reputation in the long run. But here’s the thing… It’s not who she is. This is merely how she wants other people to see her. At her core, Mary Jane is a broken person who uses her “fun-loving” personality as a coping mechanism, and avoids commitment and responsibility because of her past experiences with family.
Mary Jane grew up in a very unstable environment. Her father abandoned her, and her mother could barely take care of her. Her sister got married way too soon, and had two kids with a guy who didn’t know what he was getting into. MJ, deep down, is a helpless romantic who would love nothing more than to live a “happily ever after” story with a great husband. But she is so afraid and convinced that she will only wind up in the same situation her mother and sister were in. So she’s flaky. She loves Peter Parker, but refuses to admit it, and even originally rejects him when he proposes to her. They share this vaguely defined, complex relationship until she finally understands her problem, and marries Peter.
What I absolutely love about this relationship though is that Peter doesn’t just take a beating from her, either. That’s one thing the Sam Raimi movies entirely failed at, and that’s why the relationship is so frustrating to watch in the movies. Peter just seems to absolutely obsess over MJ, while MJ seems to not give a single shit about Peter and treats him like garbage until it’s convenient for her to date him. But this isn’t the case in the comics. In the comics, Peter doesn’t put up with any bullshit. If MJ can’t settle down, she’s not the woman he wants. And Mary Jane totally gets where he’s coming from, too. After she rejects his proposal, she doesn’t come “crawling back” to him. There isn’t some stupid cat and mouse game where one of them is always more interested than the other. It’s a very mature relationship where both of them are trying to find compromise, and are working out their own issues and discovering what they want in life.
Let’s talk about Gwen Stacy now. Look at every iteration of Gwen Stacy we’ve seen outside of her original appearances. In Ultimate Spider-Man, she’s this rebellious punk chick. In Spider-Gwen, she’s kind of a feisty female version of Peter who plays drums. In the Amazing Spider-Man movies, she’s a strong, brilliant science student. In Spider-Man 3, she’s a ditzy model type. Every single Gwen we’ve ever seen is totally different, and that’s because there’s almost nothing to use as reference.
Gwen Stacy had barely any chance to display her personality, her motivations, or just generally anything about her life outside of her brief conversations with Peter. I can’t even remember a single issue where we simply see them on a date. Most of the time, her appearances pick up where a date is ending, or are cut short with Peter running off to fight crime. Yes, Stan Lee did not approve of her getting killed off, but that doesn’t make her the better character. I would go as far as to call Gwen the “pretty face” character, and Mary Jane the one with any real chemistry with Peter. We simply don’t see enough about Gwen to really know what kind of girlfriend she was.
So to those of you still reading this oddly specific wall of text, I hope this helps change the general opinion that Mary Jane is some shallow generic hot girl who replaced Gwen. I can understand where this opinion comes from, but I find that it stems from the characters being altered and misinterpreted in many different adaptions and retellings. I would absolutely love for new Spider-Man movies to tell Mary Jane’s story more accurately than the Raimi movies did. I think there is a lot of potential in there for a very complex, original type of love story that happens to also be pretty iconic.
Do you think the new Spider-Man trailer gave away too much of the movie and focus too much on Tony Stark?
I think the new trailer did seem to give pretty much away. There was a lot in it that probably should have been left for viewers to see in the theaters. But, with that being said, I’ve thought that about movies several times and then after I see them I realize the trailer didn’t actually show me much or was framed way differently.
About Tony? I think it makes sense that he has quite a bit of focus on him since peter is still figuring out how to be spiderman and a superhero. Tony will clearly have a big role in helping him do that. Plus I always love some Tony Stark
