Zendaya's role in the Spider-Man: Homecoming franchise has been one of the most talked-about aspects of the series, as many Marvel fans suspected the actress would be taking on the role of Mary Jane Watson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the moment she was cast. Homecoming had a long, drawn out reveal that ended with Zendaya's character being named "MJ" by the end of the film - and Far From Home may take the evolution of "MJ" a step further.
Thanks to her appearance at the Spider-Man: Far From Home premiere, Zendaya is now sparking chatter that her new hairstyle may be the iconic hairstyle of Mary Jane from Spider-Man comics. Scroll below to take a look for yourself, and see what Marvel fans are saying about Zendaya's new red-haired look:

Take a hard look at this, and then wonder: Is Tom Holland surprised to see that hair? And if so, is Zendaya's new hairstyle related to something else?

The other possibility for Zendaya's new look that fans have pointed out, is Disney's upcoming live-action Little Mermaid remake. If she's been on the audition circuit, then this is certainly a version of Ariel that Disney fans seem happy with.
