Spider-Man: Far From Home actor Zendaya has fueled comparisons of her character Michelle/MJ to another famous "MJ" in Spider-Man's comic book life - Mary Jane "MJ" Watson - by posting pictures of herself with bright red hair along with the caption "Face it Tiger..." on Twitter.

The photos come from a press event for Spider-Man: Far From Home, adding to speculation that her character will have a more direct connection to the MJ of comic books in the upcoming film. And of course, the caption "Face it Tiger..." references Mary Jane's famous catchphrase "Face it Tiger, you just hit the jackpot," from her first comic book appearance.
Though Zendaya's character goes by Michelle throughout Spider-Man: Homecoming, by the film's end she reveals that her nickname is MJ.
It's not for certain she'll sport those bright red locks in the film - however the official Far From Home Twitter account sure seems to be hinting at it, retweeting the photos from Zendaya's personal account with the message "36 hours later and we 're still not over this hair."
