So I think it's safe to say that Mary-Jane has been one of the most popular and one of the most beloved comic book love interests in comics history. Mary-Jane is that kind of character who stands by her super-powered man no matter the situation. Her spunky attitude and party girl behavior has always made her stand out from the crowd and into the spotlight. First as a friend to Peter Parker, and later lover and wife, she was always loyal and stood up for what she believed in. Mary-Jane is that kind of girl not likely to shy away from a challenge, having the independence and spontaneity to take on any situation thrown her way, just to come out stronger, one of her qualities we can't help but to love. The redheaded bombshell known for being a drop dead gorgeous model and actress really makes her that triple threat of being tough, talented, and beautiful.

With a stand alone Spider-Man coming out in 2017 I think it's safe to say we are looking forward to maybe seeing Mary-Jane on the screen yet again along side Tom Holland sometime in the near future! With Tom Holland being 19, I think best to assume that we would need a younger actress to take the iconic role of MJ. So here are my top picks of actresses under 20 I would love to see tackle the role of the fiery redhead!

Peyton List

Olivia Holt

Bella Thorne

Chloe Grace Moretz

Kiernan Shipka
