Not to mention the huge number of redheads who haven't been in movies yet -- Lana Lang, Poison Ivy.
Both of these characters have appeared in live action movies and both with red hair.
Yeah the "Face it, Tiger..." bit is what I think of when I think of MJ where she's shown to be a stunning, red-haired, beauty.
Again, this is not to malign the looks of the young woman who got the part -she's perfectly attractive- but she's not jaw-droppingly "jackpot" gorgeous like the iconic panel from Spider-man.
Remains to be seen though, I'm not ready to write off the actress or the movie yet, it's just a little oddity in the casting is all. How it comes across on screen will matter, much, much more.
