    Didn't know it was possible to be jealous of the wind, but here we are.

    And you wanna know the best part about this whole thing?

    It turns out this red 'do is actually an homage to Mary Jane Watson aka MJ, the famous Marvel Comics character who debuted in The Amazing Spider-Man #42 in 1966.

    Zendaya posted a pic of her redheaded self, along with the caption "Face it, Tiger," a phrase that MJ said when first meeting Peter Parker, her future boyfriend/husband, in the Spider-Man comics.

    @Zendaya YOU USED THE CAPTION IVE NEVER LOVED YOU MORE

    @Zendaya MARY JANE MARY JANE MARY JANE MARY JANE MARY JANE MARY JANE MARY JANE MARY JANE MARY JANE MARY JANE MARY JANE MARY JANE MARY JANE MARY JANE

    @Zendaya You truly are the perfect MJ. I’ve been wanting to see you with red hair and now you dyed it red you look so amazing with it 😍

    Even though Zendaya's character is named Michelle, she did reveal that her nickname is MJ at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming.

    So folks are hoping this reference is confirmation that Zendaya is, in fact, the one and only MJ, Peter Parker/Spider-Man's love interest.
