UPDATE: Sarah Gadon is NOT playing Mary Jane in The Amazing Spider-Man!
UPDATE: This came in over the weekend from Jeff Sneider via Twitter: "100% CONFIRMED: Sarah Gadon IS in Amazing Spider-Man 2 briefly. She is NOT playing Mary Jane Watson, who will NOT appear until Part THREE." Gadon also addressed the rumor on Twitter as well: "To all those a twitter, I will not be playing MJ in Spider-Man. I have a role in the film, but it is not that one :)" If Felicity Jones is supposedly Black Cat, and Gadon definitely isn't filling in as MJ then who could she be??? Time to offer up some possibilities....
Reports started buzzing a little while ago that Shailene Woodley had already been replaced with COSMOPOLIS actress Sarah Gadon. We were a little hesitant to post because there were many denials of the story. Then ET comes out saying that they spoke with Gadon who confirmed that she was in fact in the movie.
HOWEVER we do not have a full quote, nor do we know if this is the role she is locked down for. The confirmation from Gadon via ET just happened to come right after all these rumors were going around. In fact, it's not terribly specific at all:
Director Marc Webb stated that the few scenes with MJ were cut out to put more focus on the relationship between Peter and Gwen Stacy. But does it have anything to do with the look of Woodley versus Gadon? Mary Jane was an actress and model as well so did they want less of a tomboy? Or did have to do with Woodley's schedule for DIVERGENT which is set up to be a franchise? When an official confirmation comes through we will update.
As Mary Jane says upon first meeting Peter: "Face it, Tiger... you just hit the jackpot!"
