With the new Spider-Man film coming out, the slate has been wiped clean and instead of Mary Jane, the new love-interest will be Gwen Stacy, played by Emma Stone.
I was excited, I love MJ but I was looking forward to seeing Gwen's story given proper handling. So, of course, Emma Stone will be addressed about the differences between MJ and Gwen. Hearing her response though, my opinions turned a bit sour. I thought that Emma would respond by just stating the differences between the two women, how they were different women. She did so, but her responses about MJ had some negative connotations. One of the first things she stated was the differences between the two women was....
“Gwen Stacy fell in love with Peter Parker; Mary-Jane fell in love with Spider-Man."
Look, I know she's probably basing it off by watching the original movies and what the producers are telling her, but I'm just curious, does anyone agree with her, movies aside?
MJ knew Pete was Spider-Man from even before they met, but I never got the vibe she was after him because he was Spider-Man. Hell, she dated men other than Peter and wasn't obsessed with dating "Spider-Man" and didn't actively pursue him other than the occasional flirty comment when Gwen was in the picture.
That's just my opinion, but who do you guys think she fell in love with? Peter Parker or Spider-Man?
