Meanwhile, it shouldn’t be a surprise if fans can’t help but speculate a real-life love affair between the current “Spider-Man” co-stars—considering that previous “Spider-Man” onscreen partners Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst, and Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone both became romantically involved off screen.
The fact that Zendaya’s character in the film, Michelle, was revealed to bear the nickname MJ (Peter Parker’s original love interest in the comic book lore) only made rumor mongrels even more excited. Khristian Ibarrola/JB
