That’s right – an actress is currently confirmed to be in talks with Sony to play Mary Jane Watson in the Amazing Spider-Man sequel! Find out who inside!
So you may be wondering why Mary Jane Watson is needed in the Amazing Spider-Man sequel. Peter Parker already has a love interest, right? Well, an actress is being eyed up for the role and that a number of implications for what will happen in the sequel.
For a start it could indicate the movie will be truer to the comics, at least in terms of Peter Parker’s love life. In the comics, and spoiler alert here, Gwen Stacy is killed by the Green Goblin and it seems the inclusion of the Mary Jane Watson character into the sequel could mean a similar fate for Gwen in the movie. To further add fuel to this particular fire, Emma Stone has already said in an interview that she thinks her character ought to be killed off, so that’s her fate pretty much set in stone.
So to quit speculating, the actress in talks for the Mary Jane Watson role is none other than The Descendants star Shailene Woodley.
The latest webslinger outing will hit the cinema screens May 2nd 2014.
