Andrew Garfield
ALL THINGS RELATED

Sparked from a recent conversation he had with producer Matt Tolmach about Mary Jane, or “MJ” as the character is known to fans of the popular comic books, television and movie series, Andrew Garfield tells Entertainment Weekly, “I was kind of joking, but kind of not joking about MJ. And I was like, ‘What if MJ is a dude?’ Why can’t we discover that Peter is exploring his sexuality? It’s hardly even groundbreaking!…So why can’t he be gay? Why can’t he be into boys?” The actor recently completed filming on "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," which is not expected to introduce Peter Parker's (Garfield) well known love interest just yet (the character was not included in 2012's "The Amazing Spider-Man").
