    If Goku/Bulma/Major Motoko Kusanag/The Ancient One/Tonto/All of Exodus & Gods of Egypt can be white then they can change freaking Mary Jane.

    Boo Hoo a black girl gets kidnapped by the super villain instead of a white one the plot is ruined forever

    Mary Jane is on no level as big as James Bond.

    ^ And people have actually been clamoring for a black James Bond, so the analogy fails on that level as well.

    Like how FFINO respected the source material without being slavishly loyal to it? :o

    We'd have to be glad you're not a painter. If someone came to you for a portrait, they'd probably end up looking completely different or undergoing a race change, and you'd say that you were still respecting the "source material" but just not being slavishly loyal to it. :o

    The #2 is almost certainly referring to a stunt double or body double also being present

    @Dark Raven:

    Examples of stuff that has "respected the source material" while at the same time making changes (sometimes dramatically):
    * The Lord of the Rings Trilogy

    * The Hobbit Trilogy

    * The 8 Harry Potter films

    * The Chronicles of Narnia films

    * Every MCU film to date

    * MTV's The Shannara Chronicles

    * iZombie

    * Arrow

    * The Flash

    * Legends of Tomorrow

    * Supergirl

    * Constantine

    * Vixen

    * Smallville

    * The upcoming Dark Tower film

    * Batman Begins

    * The Dark Knight

    * The Dark Knight Rises

    * Batman: The Animated Series

    * Superman: The Animated Series

    * The New Adventures of Batman and Robin

    * Batman Beyond

    The fact that you pick one movie that you personally disliked from the word "go" as an example to counter my assertion that it's BS to peddle the idea that something is only respecting the source material if it's slavishly loyal to said source material only proves my point.

    That's weirdly contrived... Like a diet Shyamalan plot twist. Is there anything supporting that hypothesis or is just a way of making head or tails of the situation? I don't picture her revealed to be MJ like Killian being the Mandarin or something, just adding complexity to the movie where it is not needed (I suppose, 'cause I can picture the plot where that adds value, instead of just doing a "shock! look what we did! Surprise!")

    Really wouldn't make statements like this just yet.

    That is by far the weirdest thing on that cast list. :huh:

    Hoping we might get a bit of a better idea about what this movie is going for.

    So apparently in that cast interview where Jon revealed who the cast was playing Tom and Zendaya shared a look, which contributed to be questioning Jon before the whole news broke out.

    I wish I actually watched the interview before all this stuff happened b/c now with all the news/rumors it definitely feels like "suspicious".

    She is MJ. Marvel and Sony haven't denied it and nobody in the know has called TheWrap's report incorrect. People are free to live in their own little world until the film comes out and they have to face reality.

    the surprise element to me is more of a "lets keep this a secret so we don't get fans angry especially after the MBJ and Woodley stuff"

    Great post by James Gunn:

    https://www.facebook.com/jgunn/posts/10153548508766157

    Especially this...

    For me, if a character's primary attribute - the thing that makes them iconic - is the color of their skin, or their hair color, frankly, that character is shallow and sucks. For me, what makes MJ MJ is her alpha female playfulness, and if the actress captures that, then she'll work. And, for the record, I think Zendaya even matches what I think of as MJ's primary physical characteristics - she's a tall, thin model - much more so than actresses have in the past.

    Nailed it.

    Haha the slight look of panic on Watts' face before he quickly just named the characters.

    Fair enough to you, but I'm making it easily. :yay:

    Only ones I see stating it's incorrect are on here, really.

    If James Gunn and Dan Slott can make comments like these, I fail to see the overall issue. I'm sure Sam Raimi and Marc Webb would state the same, too. :oldrazz:

    They did. And all of their box-office numbers suffered.
