In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Andrew Garfield reveals that in a discussion with producer Matt Tolmach, the possibility of Mary Jane being male came up.
” “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?””
The issue of EW drops June 11th.
