It’s official… MJ knows Peter Parker is actually Spider-Man, as a new promo video has been released for the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home.
In a short promo scene released for Sony‘s highly anticipated Marvel movie, Zendaya’s MJ was shown to already know the identity of the famous neighborhood web-slinger actually being her fellow classmate and potential love interest Peter Parker.
Check out the video below:

In the clip, Ned Leeds walks in on Zendaya’s MJ and Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in his black stealth suit already shown in previous trailers. While Peter claims that he was the one who told MJ his secret, MJ retorts by saying she was the one who figured it out.
While this joint Sony and Disney incarnation of one of Peter Parker’s two most prominent love interests deviates from the source material, Zendaya’s MJ has proven popular with fans for her sassiness and dry humor. However, a reveal as big as this being promoted prior to the movie’s release has never boded well for previous movies including Doomsday in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
In the movie, Peter Parker takes a break from his heroics to go on a European vacation with his classmates, only to be drafted by former S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury to combat a series of mysterious elemental attacks with the aide of apparent dimensional breacher Mysterio. The movie is also reported to introduce the comic-book multiverse to the MCU with the Earth the movies have focused on for the past 11-years being designated Earth-616, a nod to the mainstream reality in Marvel Comics.
