Interactive Wednesday: Gwen or Mary Jane?Posted: May 4, 2011
Let’s start with this:
Guys, I’m so excited for this movie. I was not at first. In my eyes Spider-Man 2 is perfect and Spider-Man 3 is best forgotten (to avoid RAGE) and basically, I was over Spidey’s origin story and frankly, tired of the Hollywood/American idealization of youth and the rush to make movies just to keep making money and tie-in toys for McDonalds that are never marketed to girls despite the fact that Spider-Man is the favourite hero of all the females in my house.

The most amazing thing about this website is that I have nothing to do with it. But I can’t not support the people behind this:
SO, for the purposes of my poll, Evan gets to be MJ. Here’s her long look:
The floof on the dress behind her sort of adds to the dramatic flair but even without that, sorry Emma, this dress is far superior. But that’s just my opinion —
