Twitter Reacts to Zendaya's New Movie Role

Twitter Reacts to Zendaya's New Movie Role

In March, it was announced that Zendaya would be joining the cast of "Spider-Man: Homecoming," a movie set during Peter Parker's time in high school.

More recently, it was revealed that the Disney channel star will be fulfilling the role of the superhero's well-known love interest – Mary Jane Watson.

While many people have rejoiced that a woman of color is playing Mary Jane, others feel Marvel should keep Mary Jane as the traditional red-headed character.
