and wasnt mj after spider-man ? just read everthing before the pararel retcon.....sure she loved peter alright
Taking Parallel Lives into account, we saw MJ fell in love with Peter IN SPITE of him being Spider-Man.
The "MJ was in love with Spider-Man meme" is really from the Raimi movies. And really only the first one (we saw her profess her love to Peter at the end of the first one only for him to reject her).
What Would Spidey Do?
This is a question I'll never know the answer to, but I've always wondered if before she signed on the dotted line she knew Gwen was basically famous for getting tossed off the bridge by Gobby. Was it like, "Yay, my own superhero franchise I can roll with for ... hey, waitaminute!"
Oh, and does anyone else have a feeling that the scene where Pete reveals to Gwen that he has Spider-powers in this flick is going to be rather similar to how it was handled in the Pete / MJ scene in Ultimate Spider-Man #13? ("I'm Spider-Man." MJ laughs.) That scene that keeps popping up in the trailer ("you're a wanted man, Peter Parker." "I created him" and/or that "your doorman scares me" bit) seems similar to at least the setting that USM #13 was; Peter's bedroom (although it would be Gwen's bedroom here). Shades and influences of USM abound in what I've seen of the flick, if not quite a straight-up adaptation.
I'm really starting to wonder who the old guy is in the trailer. Someone said it could be Ezekiel. If it is, that would explain the whole "not an accident" thing. Though I'd hope that would be disproven if it is the case in the movie. I really hope they stay away from mystical crap. Maybe I'm just paranoid. The movie looks amazing.(pun not intended)
Nightcrawler, Jean Grey, Gwen Stacy, Peter Parker, Professor X, Mar-Vell, Richard Rider- Bring Them Back!!!
Stone says in this interview that she thought she was auditioning for Mary Jane. She didn't know Gwen at all. And after reading up on Gwen, Stone then said she thought Gwen's story was "so beautiful and so tragic."
