Zendaya was cast as a potential love interest for Tom Holland's Spider-Man which got some fans worried. Marvel President and Producer Kevin Feige said that the reveal of her character as MJ wasn't regarded as this big deal going into the first movie.
“We never even looked at it as a big reveal necessarily but more of just a fun homage to his past adventures and his past love." Feige explained to IGN in 2017. "She's not Mary Jane Watson. She never was Mary Jane Watson. She was always this new high school character, Michelle, who we know there's an "M" in Michelle and an "M" in Mary. [laughs] So we're so clever and we thought, "Wouldn't it be neat if her initials were MJ?" And then I think it leaked that she would be playing MJ and then it became a whole headache for Zendaya to have to navigate,” Feige revealed. “It was never a big, "Oh my God, it's a big reveal!" There are big reveals in the movie. That's not one of them.”
You can still watch Spider-Man: Far From Home in theaters.
