Zendaya channels Kirsten Dunst's Mary Jane from Spider-Man, shares photo of new look: 'Time for a change'
Zendaya shared a new picture of her latest look and wrote: “It was time for a change”. Check out the picture here.
Actor-singer Zendaya gave her fans a glimpse of her new look with a fresh hairdo, a day ahead of the release of her new film Spider-Man: No Way Home in the US. Taking to Instagram on Thursday, Zendaya shared a selfie, sporting an auburn-coloured long bob hairstyle.
In the mirror selfie clicked what appears to be in a bathroom, Zendaya channels Spider-Man's Mary Jane aka MJ’s iconic red hair. The look appears to be inspired by what was originally seen on Kirsten Dunst in Tobey Maguire-led Spider-Man movies. Zendaya's shoulder-length hair was parted in the middle. In the photo, she wore a floral ensemble. Alongside the selfie, she captioned it, "It was time for a change."
Kirsten Dunst had also sported the auburn-hair look when she played the role of Mary Jane in Spider-Man films between 2002 and 2007 opposite Tobey Maguire. MJ has red hair in the Spider-Man comic books.
Zendaya features in Spider-Man: No Way Home alongside actor Tom Holland who plays Spider-man/Peter Parker. Zendaya and Tom, who are dating in real-life, are featuring together for a Spider-Man movie for the third time. Earlier they starred together in Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home.
The Hindustan Times review of Spider-Man: No Way Home read, "No Way Home picks up immediately after the events of 2019’s Far From Home, with a freshly outed Peter Parker, after Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio broadcasted Spider-Man’s real identity to the entire world. A bewildering media frenzy follows, involving Peter and his loved ones being engulfed by criminal investigations and public trials. Spider-Man becomes a divisive celebrity figure with adoring fans and detractors who resent him. In short, he becomes ‘the most popular person in the world’. Odd, considering I don't remember MCU Spidey being presented as a particularly well-known, world-renowned figure. He was just another hero in a world bursting with them."
