I'd prefer George Clooney as MJ.

With that said, I'm happy that on IMDB and here, people aren't acting all overzealous and immature about this. It's really sad because some fans really wonder why CB fans have a bad rep more often than not when we participate in the kind of behavior on CBM.com that's taking place right now.

Agreed.

Children need to be educated on the dangers of growing up to be sexist fanboys.

I'd say most complaints on the Hype are fairly legitimate.

I read some stuff at CBM yesterday and lol'd my socks off. But its not like I'm going to boycott the film because I don't like the casting for one supporting character.

I'll give her a chance. But I'm just going in with low expectations.

I don't like that thought.


It's almost as bad as casting her as April O'Neil. I cried myself to sleep when I heard.

That is just ridiculous. Dunst is a better and more accomplished actress than Shailene. She is actually not that great of an actress. She was okay in the descendants (a movie that got more praise because George Clooney happened to be in it) but is HORRIBLE and I mean HORRIBLE on her that cheesy teenager soap opera on ABC family.

So if we're going to talk about acting Kristen has the upper hand. If we are going to talk about looks, SO FAR I can say that Spider-man 1 Kristen looked better but at the end of the day neither of them would be considered smoking hot, which is what MJ is suppose to be. And yes, there are plenty of actresses out there that are hot and can act

Yup. Pretty much. Flexibility is not a strong suit around here.

Amen.

Some people act like being hot (or not) is a fact or something objective.

...it has nothing to do with flexibility or having one mindset. MJ has always been the sultry, model-esque love interest for Peter Parker. Eliminating that trait from her in the Raimi trilogy was fine since Gwen Stacy wasn't a major character. However, since they decided to go the Gwen Stacy route with this franchise it is important to establish a dichotomy between the two. When Gwen Stacy looks significantly more attractive than Mary Jane that is a problem, given that MJ's looks are what made Peter even notice her in the first place. Does this really have to be explained?

But there IS a level of objectivity to it. If you look at past "it girls" known for there attractiveness: Megan Fox, Jessica Alba, Halle Berry, Angelina Jolie, etc...they were considered very attractive by MILLIONS of men around the globe. Why? Because there is a little objectivity to attractiveness, no matter what everyone else would like to believe.

No, it doesn't matter how damn attractive she is. Maybe...just ****ing maybe...they found an interesting character trait(s) for the character that separate her from Gwen Stacy. Maybe they can be differentiated, by personality and not just how "hot" they appear.

Maybe she ignites a spark in Peter through something intrinsic and not a ****ing boner!

I'm thinking in terms of personality, she'll be the tiger where as Gwen will be the kitten. I can't picture Gwen riding a motorcycle.

Annnd nobody is denying this? However, INITIALLY Peter notices Mary Jane because she is hot. Pure and simple. In the comics he was avoiding her like crazy because she thought Aunt May was trying to hook him up with the awkward neighbor's daughter until he finds out that she is hot.It is not until later in the comics he FALLS IN LOVE with her because of her character traits.

As if humans don't mate for physical attraction.

See, yes for you this Gwen is significantly more attractive than this MJ. But is it so for everyone? And more importantly, is it so for the Peter Parker of this movieverse? Maybe, we don't know the story or the roles the characters will take in it.

I mean judging only on surface (for me personality is a huge part of attractiveness so I haven't got the whole picture here) I find this MJ just as attractive as this Gwen.

Maybe this Peter Parker has similar taste and views to mine.

In ASM, Gwen was essentially Ultimate MJ. I have the feeling that MJ will be similar to Ultimate Gwen...

I notice people really getting upset because people dont think the actress is as pretty as Mary Jane has always been represented and trying to blame people for being sexist. in the comic books we all know, Mary Jane has been a Super Model and Actress...why is it so offensive if people want to believe the character could be that in the films?

You must be new here.


This is not considered upset. This is probably mildly disappointed at worst.
