Garfield told Entertainment Weekly he recently pondered, "What if MJ [Mary Jane] was a dude?"
"Why can’t we discover that Peter is exploring his sexuality? It’s hardly even groundbreaking! … So why can’t he be gay? Why can’t he be into boys?” the British actor asked.
Garfield suggested Jordan, of "The Wire," as a possible male version of Mary Jane.
"He’s so charismatic and talented. It’d be even better -- we’d have interracial bisexuality!” Garfield said.
"Amazing Spider-Man 2" director Marc Webb said he's aware of Garfield's thoughts on the relationship twist.
“Michael B. Jordan, I know," he said. “Uh, are you kidding?”
