Mary Jane? Ariel from The Little Mermaid? Face it, Tiger... Zendaya just hit the jackpot!
In case you haven't heard: It's Zendaya SZN, baby.
Fresh off the success of her critically acclaimed performance in HBO's new teen drama show Euphoria, Zendaya has arrived in London to promote her new film Spider-Man: Far From Home, alongside cast mates Tom Holland, Jacob Batalon and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Of course, in Spider-Man: Homecoming (and FFH), Zendaya plays Michelle who has the initials MJ. Her MJ isn't Mary Jane Watson, the famous redhead, but that didn't stop her from paying homage to the character. After years of fan edits and Photoshopped pictures of Zendaya with red hair, she's finally gone and given the people everything they've ever wanted... she has literally dyed her hair RED.
Tweeting some pics from the photo call in front of Tower Bridge in London, Zendaya used one of Mary Jane's iconic lines from the Marvel comic series - sending everyone spiralling into a big ol' mess.
The full quote, in case you don't know, is: "Face it, Tiger... you just hit the jackpot!" which is said by MJ to Peter Parker when she meets him for the first time in Amazing Spider-Man #42.

But why is everyone losing it? Zendaya lewks flawless with any hair colour and hair style! What's new!? Well, there's several reasons why people are freaking out...
The first one is that fans are now convinced that this hair colour and the quote combined could be a hint to the fact that MJ and Peter Parker are finally about to hook up in Spider-Man: Far From Home. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT!
The second one is that the hair colour (while likely unintentional) literally demonstrates how perfect she would be as Ariel in a live action remake of The Little Mermaid. In case you aren't aware, Zendaya has been rumoured to play the role for a while and people are very into the idea.
