Michael B. Jordan Says Spider-Man Shouldn't Be Gay and Mary Jane Watson Shouldn't Be a Man

Posted: July 13th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Michael B. Jordan Says Spider-Man ShouldnSubmit Comment
Michael B Jordan (Chronicle) is currently promoting his new movie, "The Fruitvale Station," and is answering a bunch of questions about rumors that he'll soon be joining a comic book film.

The first rumor is that Jordan will play Johnny Storm/Human Torch in the "Fantastic Four" reboot that will be directed by "Chronicle" director Josh Trank. "Everybody knows that me and Josh are really good friends," said the actor. "I'm a comic book guy. So if the opportunity came about, if he came to me and said, 'Hey Michael, I want you to do this,' I wouldn't even think twice about it."

Jordan was also asked for his thought on Andrew Garfield wanting Spider-Man to become gay and have Jordan play a male version of Mary Jane Watson. "No thoughts on that," the actor replied awkwardly. "I think a lot of times with comic books, if you have a character you grew up with that gets recast, sometimes people feel a certain way about it. If it's specific to race or other characteristics that can't change and would be detrimental to the character, then I feel like they shouldn't be changed."

You hear that Garfield, no means no. Be gay on your own time and leave the superhero alone.

Aaaaanyway, has anyone compared Slashfilms comment handling of the previous Gay Spiderman story series to this website?

http://www.slashfilm.com/andrew-garfield-suggests-gay-spider-man-wants-michael-b-jordan-for-mj/


Just look at that sh*t. Fully threaded comments using Disqus, image posting, rating/ranking system...kind of makes this place look as modern as a Soviet outhouse.

Competition, Alex. Maybe you should try it.

I don't think he really cares if Spider-Man is gay or not....I think he was just trying to make it clear that he has no interest in f*cking Andrew Garfield.

I'm so sick and tired of these constant changes due to political correctness. Spider-Man souldn't be gay and Johnny Storm shouldn't be black!

If they have such a terrible itch for it, can't someone create new characters that meet the demands of current political climate and LEAVE THE CLASSICS ALONE?! For f*ck's sake.

Whoa...this guy actually sounds like an intelligent human being. My God...people in Hollywood are evolving!

On a side note, Garfield is a damn idiot. He is approaching his superhero role, like Cavill I'm sure, with an overabundance of Shakespearean tragedy. Like first he makes him emo and frankly kind of boring and now he wants to change the dynamics of the character EVEN MORE! Garfield, please, you already screwed up the superhero. Don't make it worse for yourself by putting a giant target on your back to the millions of fans who like the original Spider-Man and not the screwed, over-dramatic sociopath you have crafted for us.

cress writes:
on July 13th, 2013 at 10:15:18 PM

I never understood how the prosecution can claim he was "on the hunt", looking to kill this kid. It's was such a horsesh*t trial. This has nothing to do with race. There are kids his age, white/black/latino who are aggressive f*cking hoodlums who are looking to get into sh*t. The guy defended himself. Martin was on top of him when Zimmerman shot him. It screams self-defense to me.

minkowski writes:
on July 13th, 2013 at 10:21:14 PM

@Cress: yeah I know, everything screamed self-defense, and the prosecution had to come up with this silly story that George ran the kid down with gun drawn, like you're going to attack a guy with a gun.

Casey Anthony was guilty as hell. No way you don't report your kid missing for a month and then lie about it and not have something to do with her disappearance, but the idiot prosecutor failed to prove his case.

OJ's another sc*mbag who got to walk, and all because of a racist lawyer who used Mark Fuhrman's ten year old use of the word "n*gger" as a way to manipulate a nearly all black jury who probably thought OJ was innocent no matter the evidence.

But hey, they got it right here, which is rare, as you said Bando.

Well, at least he has some sense in his head, unlike Garfield apparently. Although Garfield was probably just saying that to get the attention, anyway.

Too bad this guy still thinks making Human Torch black is no biggie.
minkowski writes:
on July 13th, 2013 at 11:28:17 PM

@Bando: you're talking about the one he had in Florida, right? Ever see his new girlfriend? They say she looked a lot like the one he butchered.
minkowski writes:
on July 13th, 2013 at 11:33:39 PM

@Pornfly: As a man, I readily admit I would bang Casey Anthony, even knowing what I know.

Now I hang my head in shame.
minkowski writes:
on July 13th, 2013 at 11:35:57 PM

@Cress: I said Li not Lee. I did that on purpose since so many of the other names were two letters. Seemed to make more sense than the seemingly Westernized Lee, but I understand had they used Li rather than Lee the reader would have read and said it like LIE instead.

Anyway. Boring night.
