    Spiderman's girlfriend is Mary Jane or Gwen Stacy?
    Why different names?

    Did Spiderman manage to get married in the story books?

    Though MJ appeared first (by a few issues) in the 1960s comic book, it was originally planned that Gwen would eventually become Peter Parker's long-term love interest (arguably his version of Lois Lane versus Lana Lang). Thus, Peter gradually developed an aversion to Mary Jane's supposed "superficial" personality and swung over to "nicer" Gwen.

    But MJ unexpectedly became more popular with the fans, so Gwen was finally killed off in 1973 by the Green Goblin.

    Mary Jane underwent a personality change after Gwen's death, as well as the "sadness" of the latter drawing her and Peter together again -- first in friendship and then romance.

    However, the ever fickle fans now became disturbed by the exit of Gwen, so under pressure from them as well Stan Lee's angst (the character was slightly based on his wife), Marvel intermittently brought her back in various ways. There was even an alternate universe version of Gwen Stacy that became a superhero.

    He married Mary Jane at some point, but that was undone by a revision of the timeline. (Have no idea how those comic book geeks keep track of all the retcon slash retconn revisions over the decades, that happen via whatever means.)

    The current Spider-man by Tom Holland is lousy story, I watched until fell sleep.
    I prefer the Spiderman by Tobey Maguire.
    The MJ acted by Kirsten Dunst is the most beautiful Spiderman's lover.
    Sad to see that the story of new Spiderman has rotten.

    This "No way home" story about multiverse, 2 spidermen and other old rivals came to this universe,
    and the story is just bullshit and funny.
    This is the worst spiderman movie I ever watched.
    Why not Dr Strange open gate for Superman, Batman, Captain America to come in?
    What's the bullshit?

    Mr. Bean is infinitely superior.

    I think it would be sad if you have the same heroes today as you did when you were 5.

    Previous Batman, Superman, Spiderman are great hero.
    But today they have become clowns in the circus.

    Hmm. Easy to guess what might have contributed to that pining, though the video just seems bizarre to me.

    Kirsten Dunst: "Turning Japanese" (HD)

    The merger between Warner Bros and Discovery will supposedly shake up things significantly at DC, including more time spent on underused characters like Superman. They could even go multiple variants of the latter debuting over the same time frame -- including a Black Superman.

    Might actually work, since the "go Woke, go broke" prediction usually applies when a social justice revision callously, completely wipes out the original version of an _X_ that generations are familiar with. For instance, in the comics they apparently have a gay or bisexual Superman, but he's the son of the first Superman.

    That's the way to do it. Rather than the usual, heavy-handed, exploitive, "look what self-righteous, pretentious sycophants we are with respect to the latest cultural Marxist oppression-conspiracy trends". You know, that kind of haughty, sphincter-hood romp into revisionist hell.

    Why X-men has ended?
    I like X-men.
    Without Wolverine, the story still can continue.
    Did Jane die eventually?

    All X-Men related films under development at 21st Century Fox were cancelled by the Walt Disney Company after the latter acquired rights to the franchise. Like Spider-Man, any future X-Men movies will now be made by Marvel Studios as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Nothing is apparently planned apart from the release of an animated series in 2023.

    She died twice -- in both the original timeline and the changed one, of the 21st Century Fox franchise. Disney now classifies all those movies as "Marvel Legacy" films. IOW, Marvel Studios will reboot the X-Men series if/when they ever put them back on the big screen.

    The current/latest Batman is the product of what company?
    I watched the Batman, the riddler was jailed, and he talked to a myterious guy next door, seems that there will be continued series in Batman, right?

    Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Justice League, etc belong to the DC Comics brand, ultimately owned by the Warner Bros-Discovery merger.

    Spider-Man, X-Men, Captain America, Avengers, etc belong to the Marvel Comics brand, ultimately owned by the Walt Disney Company.

    "The Batman" is the first installment of a rebooted trilogy of Batman movies. Presumably that project will survive the recent merger and Discovery's overhaul of the whole DC universe of characters.
