Fans were thrilled to no end when Zendaya’s character, Michelle, told Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and the rest of their friends to call her “MJ” during the latter part of “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”

Many believe it’s a nod to MJ Watson, one of Peter’s great loves. But Marvel president Kevin Feige and Sony producer Amy Pascal said Michelle is not Mary Jane Watson.

“We never even looked at it as a big reveal necessarily, but more of just a fun homage to his past adventures and his past love. She never was Mary Jane Watson,” Feige told IGN. “She was always this new high school character, Michelle, who we know there’s an ‘M’ in Michelle and an ‘M’ in Mary. So we’re so clever and we thought, ‘Wouldn't it be neat if her initials were MJ?’”

Even though it was a cool reference to the red-headed lady love of Peter, Feige said Michelle’s announcement that she’s “MJ” is not a big reveal.

“She is not going to end as being Mary Jane Watson,” Pascal added.

However, Feige said it’s not impossible for Michelle to become Peter’s next love interest. “Is she going to date Peter? Are they going to fall in love? She seems to be intrigued with him. There's a nice chemistry there. Who knows what will happen in the future films?” he teased.

Meanwhile, Spider-Man is going to be pretty big in the next Marvel movies, more specifically “Avengers: Infinity War.”

“I think it might feel bigger a little bit because of ‘Homecoming’ and because of what people know from it, but it’s about on par with [Civil War],” Feige told Fandango about Spidey’s role in the film.

When asked who else will join Spider-Man in “Infinity War,” Feige decided to play coy. “There’s a pretty big crew already in those movies, but you might keep an eye out,” he said.

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” was released on July 7 while “Avengers: Infinity War” will hit the big screen on May 4, 2018.
