MJ without the red hair and super model looks is like Iron Man without a suit of armor or Hulk not being a giant green rage monster. It's iconic to her character. The change is insulting to the fans. I would have liked the character just fine had she just been some random new character with MJ being introduced in some later movie but they've already went and shit all over that by calling this one MJ.

And even worse, Zendaya can at least pull the look off

Of course that is going to happen but it is like any major cliffhanger from any TV show - obviously everyone is going to be ok in the end but I don't want to see a clip of episode 2 of the new series where everything is back to normal...it is fucking retarded this trailer coming out now
It doesn't bother me in the slightest. Everyone already knows the dusted weren't staying dusted and everyone already knew this wasn't the end of the MCU. Due to marketing reasons, you have to release trailers for movies. The only way to not have this trailer come out before Endgame is to change the release date to the Fall. It makes more sense money-wise to release this as a Summer movie.

I mean, bitching about seeing people alive who you already knew weren't going to be dead seems like a really minor thing to bitch about. I'm sure there will be plenty of real deaths *coughcoughCapcough* in Endgame to keep your bloodlust satisfied.

I'd have been okay with her had she looked like this and oh yeah, had MJ's personality too. She not only doesn't look the part, she doesn't act it either.

Oh no doubt. In fact a lot of the problem with these movies is that the writers have no idea how actual teenagers act and just filled the movie with stereotypes. No one has a character that isn't stock.

Just release the trailer a week into Endgame's run. This film could have no trailers before release and it would still make a shedload of money

It is pointless me repeating myself again but it is just fucking retarded having a trailer for a film with so much riding on it - Cap's tears, IM's apparent imminent death and then before that film is even released have trailer for a film set after it full of clowns making bad jokes all happy and smiling...

It bothers you. It doesn't bother me. Agree to disagree.

People love to complain just to complain. Even without this trailer dropping it was still announced just like the guardians just like black panther and Just like Doctor Strange sequels. So of course none of them were going to stay dusted

To be honest I don't consider Michelle to be MCU's Mary Jane. Her being called MJ is just a little nod but for me she's her own thing, like Ned Leeds. I enjoyed Michelle a lot because I accepted that. I don't expect Michelle to have the carpe diem attitude of Mary Jane. I don't expect her to hang out with Harry Osborn and then dump him. I don't expect her not to meet Parker until he's on the university (obviously). I don't expect her to be his third girlfriend after Betty Brant and Gwen. I don't expect her to be an actress. I don't expect her to be anything like Mary Janes and I don't need her to be. Maybe I wouldn't be surprised if she has a similar background-her father abandoning her family, etc-, but that's it.

I don't consider her to be the MCU's Mary Jane either because clearly she is not. The problem is that if you're gonna have Spider-Man, you kinda have to have Mary Jane too. It would have been totally fine had she been introduced in a later movie but giving this new character the nickname MJ is just going to confuse people if/when the real deal shows up.

I didn't even notice in the first movie that she was called MJ. But that's the problem lol, those characters aren't MJ, or Flash, or Aunt May... They gave them those names but completely changed the characters. I'm afraid of what they'll do to J. Jonah Jameson if he ever appears.

It's not enough to have a cool hero and a cool villain if the rest of the characters all suck. It's a shame because Tom Holland gave us the best portrayal of Spider-Man yet, he deserves better.
