Another reason to like Andrew Garfield

From an interview for Entertainment Weekly

Andrew Garfield has loved Spider-Man since he was a little kid. He can speak eloquently and at length about how open the Spider-verse is for interpretation. Recently, he says, he had a philosophical discussion with producer Matt Tolmach about Mary Jane or “MJ” to fans. “I was kind of joking, but kind of not joking about MJ,” he tells EW. “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?”

Garfield even has an actor in mind: “I’ve been obsessed with Michael B. Jordan since The Wire. He’s so charismatic and talented. It’d be even better—we’d have interracial bisexuality!” The star has clearly suggested a sexually flexible Spidey to his director, Marc Webb, as well. When EW later mentions the idea to Webb, the director says, “Michael B. Jordan, I know.” Oh, so he’s heard this too? “Uh, are you kidding?

I love that he even has a boyfriend picked out! :)

Wasn't Michael B. Jordan rumored to be Johnny Storm in the FF4 reboot? I'm not much for shipping Johnny and Peter, but I could get behind this.

You can never go wrong with Peter and Johnny, although your mileage can vary since I used to think Matt was Peter`s "best pal" back on the 90s.

Like Garfield, not so much this new Spider-Man rebooted franchise.
