Even more names thrown into the Mary Jane Watson pile, one of them a Glee alum

Oct. 1, 2010by: Paul Tassi

Spider-Man continues to search for his leading lady, and the studio is practically digging through every young actress in LA to find her. Previously, Emma Stone and Mia Wasikowska among others were mentioned as possible leads, and now even more names have been thrown into contention.

The "big" one of the bunch I suppose would be Glee's Dianna Agron (seen here), but she may not be available due to the fact she's starring in an inexplicably popular TV show (though she did screen test last night according to Deadline). Along with her on the shortlist are Georgina Haig of WASTED ON THE YOUNG and Dominique McElligot who showed up briefly in MOON as Sam Rockwell's daughter.

I've been pulling for Emma Stone from the get-go, but she seems like almost the too-obvious choice for the role. Judging by the fact the studio and director Marc Webb picked someone like Andrew Garfield over someone like Logan Lerman, I wouldn't be surprised if it went to someone we wouldn't really expect in the role like Wasikowska or McElligot.

Now, how about announcing our villain(s) perhaps?

Extra Tidbit: In some parallel universe where up is down and black is white, Lindsay Lohan just landed this role.

If this girl and her agents have any sense in their heads, then she'll definitely clear some room in her schedule for shooting. Whether the movie is good is obviously up for debate, but I have no doubt it'll be successful, and she'd be an idiot to pass up the opportunity. However, personally, I like some of the other names more.

As a reader who grew up with Mary Jane in Spidey, I'd like to see her. But they've already gone that route with Kirsten Dunst, where she was portrayed terribly.

I guess what I'm saying is, whether it's MJ, Gwen Stacy, Betty Brant, or Deb Whitman for fuck's sake, does it really matter who Spidey's damsel in distress will be? It'll probably be a nothing role anyways.

Dominique McElligot is actually Sam Rockwell's wife on Moon, not his daughter. Also I agree that having only Gwen Stacey as the love interest would be the best move, as she was technically the first love.

Hahaha, I love the extra tidbit. Regarding the new Spider-Man, I personally think they will throw in a love triangle between Peter Parker and MJ & Gwen Stacy.

Why Mary Jane Watson?

Gwen Stacy was the love of Peter's life far earlier and even was paralleled in the Spidey movies. Mary Jane was a no body for ages.

No Mary-Jane

For fucks sake, I really hope the female lead ISN'T Mary Jane but Gwen Stacey or any other number of other girls Pete was tappin' before MJ came along...

Uggh. Agron is super cute and all, but man, on Glee she projects all the charisma and personality of this keyboard I'm typing on. Figured we were talking Lea Michelle from the title . . .

emma stone is just too plain. MJ is supposed to be a knockout model. emma stone is better as the every-girl.
