Looking forward very much to seeing Shailene as MJ. She is very attractive. Liked her a lot in The Descendants, thought she did a good job.

Baffling.

I think the way I see it, some people are just disappointed the team aren't following the comic books and some people are really happy/ over the moon that they are doing their own thing. I think the only issue is and this doesn't just relate to MJ/Shailene is that if they stray too far away from the source materiel i.e, changing the characters, making them different from the comics, etc, it really doens't have any place calling itself an adaptation of the comics. More like 'loosely based on Spider-Man comics.' Obviously 'fanboys' are very sensitive. When they regard the comics so highly and then a studio adapts them it irks them when they change so many elements. They will still go and see it, but part of them wonders why they had to deviate so far from the comic books, when to them, it was fine the way it was. Others are just glad they are doing another Spider-Man movie, regardless of what they do to it. Some people are wait-and-see kind of people, they will see if they like the take on it and then decide if they like it and some people couldn't give a flying flip what they do with the movie, they just want something decent to watch for 2 hours to kill some time. Everyone has different reasons for seeing movies.

Speaking on topic about Shailene/MJ, Im not gonna lie and say Im not a little dissapointed that they went the Ultimate MJ route, I dont hate her by any means, but she kind of seemed like a re-hash of Gwen from Amazing SM. From the sounds of it the writers were always looking for a way to switch the two characters around and they did that in Ultimate SM. I think in TASM Gwen Stacy was basically Amazing Gwen with some Ultimate MJ thrown in, which is why it seems odd to be using Ultimate Mary Jane for the basis of this MJ. Some people like the idea of them both being 'intellectuals' some prefer a contrast. I always thought it was better when characters are a bit different from one another.

Yes, those useless, witless, weird, egotistical, ugly, arrogant, stupid, cowardly, stinking fanboys seem to have it in their twisted head that Mary Jane is like, some kind of underwear model!! As if!! People who use their looks in their career have no brain, everyone knows that!! Honestly I cannot even imagine where they got the idea from that Mary Jane is some poser, when clearly the evidence proves she is anything but!!

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:

Not funny. At all. Irony is all those words you say are most of the times true about fanboys. Not to mention a very poor example, too. Every comic book artist draws women to look like underwear models, not counting Rob Liefeld who doesn't know s**t from apple juice about the structures of the human body.

I'm aware of that. I just haven't seen those two in anything.

Lemme rephrase. "I still haven't seen the descendants. Gotta see that AND Chronicle for Dane."

At first I was angry at some posters here. Now they're very entertaining to me. But when WesMan comes back I'm reporting a couple of 'em if they keep this up.

I think a Mod should address this thread. It's blatant sexism and even misogyny. But yes, the stupidity is ridiculous. Going to try and change the subject here:
What do we want MJ's personality to be like?

i think she´ll be like Ultimate Gwen Stacy...,
Quote:
wears punk-style clothing, and is rebellious...Gwen becomes friends with Peter, which leads Mary Jane Watson to believe Gwen is vying for his affections.
from Wikipedia

just change MJ for Gwen and done, it seems that way for her clothing , idk

^ Ha that's a safe answer. I'd go with that as well.
She has to have some "bite" to her otherwise I think she'd be dull.

I'm excited to see what she can bring as MJ, despite her having a short role. If she is like Ultimate Gwen, you'll hear no complaints out of me.

Well I feel like she has to contrast from who Gwen is. Gwen's intelligent and sweet, and MJ can be those but also differ from Gwen, which is what you described; rebellious. Also add feisty- and a girl who's down for a lot. Basically like TSSM MJ.

Heck the girl rides a motor bike. I'm looking forward to her. ;]
