Mary Jane will not fight for Peter's affections in the Spider-Man reboot

11.05.2010by:

You can stop wondering which actress will be playing Mary Jane since she will not be in the SPIDER-MAN reboot.

Yesterday when the news came that Martin Sheen and Sally Field were to play Peter's uncle and aunt there was also a little something else in those details.

The Wrap reports that James Vanderbilt's (ZODIAC, THE LOSERS) screenplay doesn't include the red headed temptress. There were rumors early on that Mary Jane and Gwen Stacy would be competing for the love of Peter Parker, but it looks like that won't be happening. The filmmakers decided that one love interest was enough for this Spider-Man.

At one point we all thought that Emma Stone would be taking on the role of MJ until news came out that the actress would go back to her blonde roots to play Stacy.

So we have our hero, villain, love interest, and caring aunt and uncle. Now all we need is a J. Jonah Jameson.

Extra Tidbit: I quite enjoyed the Marvel Zombies series. I also liked all of the figures and busts that came out of it. For example, this awesome shit.

As long as they are going to do the "Death Of Gwen Stacy" storyline and bring her in with the second one I'm okay with this.

They could recast the whole movie with shitty actors, i dont care. As long as we get J.K. Simmons and some Bruce Campbell, im content.

Perhaps J.K., but no Raimi means no Campbell.

I thought those comics were pretty good as well. I love how they ended up having the whole source of the infection being Ash William's fault.

Hoping for the best, but still not feeling this. I love that they're going the Stacy route. However, I feel like we've been robbed of the story of her demise down the road because of them having the GreenGoblin drop MJ off of that bridge in Raimi's first film. I feel like they will avoid the Green Goblin entirely in this new franchise.

You know, as much as people like to crap on the idea of this reboot happening... I'm all for it. As a long time comic book reader, the two Spidey films we got (I don't count 3... sorry) were OK... but something always felt off about them.

I never really liked Toby as Spider-Man... I could just never really find him believable... almost as if he was to much of a dork... even after he was bitten he still stayed an uber dork.

Spidey 2 was the best of the bunch, but again... the whole not

Spidey 2 was the best of the bunch, but again... the whole not really wanting to be Spider-Man thing got old pretty quick and the Doc Ock "not a bad guy... just controlled by his arms" stuff was pretty bad... and don't get me started on how awful Dunst was... ugh.

I have no issues with another guy wanting to take a spin with Spider-Man... maybe we'll get better movies.. using Gwen as Peters first love is already a step in the right direction.

Maybe they could have just went the Spider-Man 4 route... but then you'd have people complaining about recasts.

I wish the movie wouldn't retell his origin but in regards to Super Hero films we're always going to get that. We'll get it in Zach Snyder's Superman, too.

Part of me hopes they just recast JK Simmons... he IS J.J.

Speaking of Marvel Zombies, they should make a movie about it. That should be fun. As for the new Spider-Man movie, I'll wait for some stills and trailers.

I don't know who

could over-write JK Simmons as Jameson. Looking back, he was probably my favorite part of those movies. "Crap. Crap. Mega-crap. Their crap." lulz.

On the subject of J. Jonah Jameson, I'll be honest. I really can't see anyone other than JK Simmons playing him. He was perfect.

Blah

"Kids these days aren't into spiderman much" I heard that exact same thing back in 2001. If anything, the trilogy made new fans and Spidey is even bigger now. The thing is, fans of the first three films are turned off by this reboot. THAT is a factor, not the popularity of a very cool character.

Going to do ok

This movie is going to do ok at the box office, but won't set any records. Kids these days aren't into spiderman much anymore, they should make a new animated series and get kids into it again since it seems like its geared to younger audience

Hell Yeah

Keeps getting better. I'm actually excited now. Mary Jane didn't enter the comics for a good seven years. Bring on Das Oldschoolen.

Hell yeah on the marvel zombies. That would make for a much better movie. Zombie super heroes vs living super heroes. Would definately be interesting instead of this crappy remix.

That's like having the next superman reboot without lois lane, I was hoping to see another cute redhead give it a try since I never really cared for Dunst as MJ.

This is great news. I've had enough MJ for a long time. Let's give a different character a shot.

I like Emma Stone, I like Martin Sheen

I'm pretty neutral towards this reboot, but I really hope they bring back J.K. Simmons as Jameson. He *owned* that character!

That is a smart idea.

If they want the reboot to distance itself from the first movie, this is a good way to do it. Aside from it being more comic accurate, it takes the focus away from SMG's poor perfomance of MJ. I am glad to hear this.

Not to be a picky nerd or anything, but last time I checked Peter Parker lives with his aunt and uncle, not his grandparents. If you are going to write a news story, get the facts straight.

I'm okay with putting MJ on the shelf for awhile--as long as they bring her back. Give Gwen a chance to shine--but to me, MJ will always be the best love-interest / supporting character.
