Red(Head) Alert! Zendaya is Now A Ginger Goddess … Find Out Why



Zendaya is now a redhead!

The 22-year-old actress showed up in London for the photo-call for her new flick Spider-Man: Far From Home sporting ginger locks. She debuted the new look alongside her costars, including Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal (pictured below) pairing the look with a stylish, gold-detailed blazer and glamorous, high-neck blouse.

Of course fans went crazy speculating that the new color was an unofficial confirmation that she would play Ariel in Disney’s live-action adaptation of “The Little Mermaid.” The rumors of her potential role in the movie have been swirling since last August.

However, the actress quickly took to Twitter to clarify that the new style was an homage to MJ, or Mary-Jane Watson, one of the leading love interests in Marvel’s Spider-Man comics who had distinctive red hair.


Zendaya’s character in the Marvel Universe films is also nicknamed MJ, but … they aren’t the same character. Zendaya’s character’s name is Michelle, but fans will recall from the end scene in Spiderman:Homecoming that she tells Peter Parker to call her MJ.

She also posted a photo on Instagram with the caption “Face it Tiger …” a phrase MJ said to Parker in the comic books.
