Marvel has now revealed that Peter Parker and Mary Jane will be getting back together following the tragic event of One More Day, which happened just a few days ago, including the introduction of the child we caught a glimpse of. (I can only assume it’s Mayday Parker.)

Many fans weren’t too thrilled about the ending of the relationship between Peter Parker and Mary Jane, where they sacrificed their great love in a deal with the devil to save Aunt May. Although considering it’s the ultimate sacrifice, people still weren’t thrilled with the idea. Mary Jane has been a reoccurring character in the comics, but it has been made clear that their relationship didn’t work out but would remain distant friends. It has even been hinted that Mary Jane remembers their marriage but it hasn’t been confirmed.


In an interview with writer Dan Slott talked about how Spider-Man will always have to be responsible.

“Spider-Man, when you get down to it, is a character about responsibility. And the second he’s a father and a husband—he has a responsibility to share his powers with the world, but suddenly he has two people that are his whole world. That changes everything, the complete dynamic of what it means to have great power and great responsibility,” says Slott. “You need to be there for your daughter, you need there for your wife—in a way that he hasn’t had to be there for anyone else. And that drastically changes what it means to be Spider-Man.”

Now I wonder if the reintroduction of Spider-Man’s relationship with Mary Jane might be to reintroduce the story to the new generation of fans, who have only seen the Amazing Spider-Man films where Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy is his love interest. This could then be a reintroduction for the future MCU version of Spider-Man films. What do you think?
