Zendaya has explained how MJ and Peter’s roles have been reversed in the conclusion to Jon Watts’ “Homecoming “ trilogy, Spider-Man: No Way Home. Zendaya made his MCU debut alongside Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in 2017 Spider-Man: Homecoming, a movie that saw her play Michelle, a sarcastic / guarded student who would rather mock her classmates than become a social butterfly. At the end of the film, it was revealed that Michelle Jones is MJ for MCU’s Peter Parker. After developing the iconic relationship in Spider Man: Far from home two years later, MJ returned Spider-Man: No Way Home, the greatest movie of the past year.


IN Far from homeMysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) on the movie scene implicated Spider-Man as a killer and revealed his secret identity to the world. Continues where it left off, No way home begins with Peter and MJ fleeing Times Square. The beginning of the film deals with how Peter, as a divisive figure, affects the lives of his family and friends. Finally, Peter Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) asks for help. Unfortunately, the couple ends up opening up the multiverse and bringing back the former Spidey villains Doc Ock (Alfred Molina), Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe), Electro (Jamie Foxx), Sandman (Thomas Haden Church), and Lizard (Rhys Ifans). Fortunately, Peter overcomes this situation and overcomes tragedy with the help of some well-known webslingers, his friend Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon) and, of course, MJ.

In an interview with Marvel.com, Zendaya talked about how, in the first couple of Spider Man film, MJ is very much a loner. As Peter comes along, she gets smaller and smaller. Then, in No way home, MJ becomes an even more positive and “confident” person, like Peter. Read what Zendaya had to say about this role reversal below:

“Peter helps melt MJ a little bit and break the shell she’s had to build to protect herself from the world. She does not have many people she feels she can trust and trust, and Peter is and she does not want to lose him … She does not want to lose this person who has really given her the opportunity to feel more and more like herself, and more and more confident in who she is, and loves her precisely for all the quirks and things that make her who she is.Because he goes through so much, she now takes on his positivity that he might lose a little bit.He assumes a more negative nihilistic view. “

The character arc, as Zendaya points out, is clearly evident at the end of Spider Man: No way home. While discussing college applications near the beginning of the film, MJ Peter says “If you expect disappointment, then you can never really be disappointed. “When she and her friends do not enter the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Peter goes to Strange and multiversal madness arises. In the film’s climax, Peter realizes that the only way to protect the multiverse is to Strange to delete “Peter Parker” from everyone’s memory, and then promises MJ and Ned that he will find them afterwards and remind them of who he is. At the end of the film, Peter goes to the donut shop where MJ works and finds out that she and Ned have joined MIT. After revisiting MJ’s quote from earlier in the film, this time MJ chooses optimism and says, “something feels different this time” which has implications for Peter’s decision to break his promise.

In addition to making Zendaya’s MJ a more prominent and more nuanced character than before Spider Man movie, Spider Man: No way home gives her one comic-precise-like name in Michelle Jones-Watson. It remains to be seen whether Zendaya’s MJ will be seen again at MCU, but recent reports suggest that Disney / Marvel Studios and Sony are actively developing future films with Holland’s webslinger. And like Superman and Lois or Batman and Alfred, Spider-Man and Mary Jane Watson go hand in hand, and it would certainly be a shame to waste MJ’s character development by not bringing her back to the screen.
