UPDATED: make-up and Emo Parker! Catch a glimpse of Shailene Woodley in her Mary-Jane Watson hair for The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Pics, Tweets, and snippets of news and teases have been rolling in from the production of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 and today is no different. Actress Shailene Woodley (THE DESCENDANTS) has been spotted on the New York set, rocking some long, red locks that look fitting enough for her character, Mary-Jane Watson, the longest-running love interest for Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Mary-Jane's appearance in the film could mean any number of things as the continuity of the newly rebooted series, directed by Marc Webb, has taken quite a few "Walking Dead" liberties in adapting the source material.
Woodley is an attractive young lady, no doubt, although many have savaged these pics already as her not being "hot enough." Based on the pics, it seems like she was caught walking to the set or just around town, and probably yet to visit the hair and make-up truck, so it's a little early to start going Rex Reed on the girl. I think she's an interesting choice and will reserve my judgment until she's been properly presented to us.
Take a gander:
I'm much more optimistic for this sequel. I didn't much care for the first one, but now that it's out of the way and with things so out of the ordinary in terms of story, I'm interested to see where they're going to go with this. The new Spidey suit is definitely a step in the right direction, in my opinion, so it's a start.
What do you guys think of Woodley as MJ?
UPDATE: Well, I think it's pretty clear that the lovely Shailene hadn't made it to make-up yet when the above shots were taken as these are much more becoming of the actress, who shot some scenes with Andrew Garfield today. Take a look and see if your mind is swayed. Personally, I think there's been some really harsh commentary with the above pics, but hey, that's the way the Internet goes.
I'm more concerned with Emo Peter Parker's pants than I am with Shailene's make-up...
