Sony wants Mary Jane Watson to appear in The Amazing Spider-man 2

Oct. 10, 2012by: Alex Maidy

It took Sam Raimi three movies before he brought in the love triangle of Peter Parker, Mary Jane Watson, and Gwen Stacy. Director Marc Webb is not holding back and will bring in the dueling love interests for Peter Parker in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2.

Variety is reporting that Sony already has an actress in mind for the redhead bombshell: THE DESCENDANTS' Shailene Woodley. Casting is also underway for Harry Osborn, previously played by James Franco, as well as the villain who is rumored to be Electro.

The mysterious post-credits sequence with Curt Connors and the shadowy man asking all the questions led many to wonder if that was Norman Osborn or someone else. We may get to find out in the upcoming sequel.

Woodley is a cute girl and looks like a high schooler which would play into the teenage reboot universe of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. Not sure how I feel about Emma Stone's Gwen being that much closer to her impending doom, but I can't argue with the casting. Woodley doesn't quite have the buxom cartoonish nature we often see Mary Jane drawn with these days, but she does fit the girl next door mentality that she was originally created with in mind.

What do you think of Mary Jane, Harry Osborn, and Electro gracing THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2?

Thanks again, Alex!

Thanks for once again not using spoiler tags in your stories. I haven't seen TASM, but I'm glad you spoiled the after credits scene for me in some way. You've already spoiled Breaking Bad for me, so why not move to movies for me? Seriously, learn how to use a fucking spoiler tag or just stop writing altogether since clearly the concept of spoiling things for readers is something you obviously don't have a grasp on.

Normally I would say it's your own fault for coming here, however in re-reading the article, I actually agree with you on this one. There is absolutely no reason to have included the paragraph containing the spoiler. It doesn't have anything to do with the headlining story, and you could cut it out completely and it wouldn't change a thing.

How about for MJ...

Bella Thorne from the latest batch of Disney Channel shows. Natural redhead, not horrible looking...

Bella Thorne is a great suggestion! She's just too young to pair with Andrew Garfield.

Sounds like a reboot to the reboot if ya keep bringing in the same characters from the original trilogy. I hate how Hollywood thinks we are stupid & feel to have the same shit in every comic movie over & over. I mean damn just give up the rights to Marvel already because now ya just back to square one again. Right when i was just starting to forgive you for making the reboot decent.

Bad casting for MJ

She should be a complete stunner and also a natural redhead if possible. That chick looks about 12.

I really liked the latest incarnation. I really wish they changed the cannon just a bit by having Peter bitten by a ton of spiders when he walked into the spider sweat shop, especially considering how ridiculously easy it was to get into that super secret off limits room. Seriously, I wouldn't be shocked if one of the sequels was a courtroom drama where there's a class action lawsuit of 800 spider men who wondered into that room and got bit.

She isn't good looking enough IMO.
MJ is supposed to be a super model, the dynamic of her relationship with Peter is dependant on it. Also, Gwen can't be better looking than MJ.
They would better off using someone like Deborah Ann Woll.
As for how they bring her in. Have Gwen and Peter broken up to start AS2 and have Aunt Mae hint towards Peter meeting her friends niece. Spidey saves the day, Gwen and Peter get back together, only for MJ to be introduced at the very end with her classic

(Aunt Mae wouldn't know about them getting back together at this point)

I really would like to see Shailene Woodley as MJ, I think she could be a great foil to Emma Stone. Maaaaybe the second film is too soon to bring her in, but if there's MJ in controlled doses, I'm down for it.

still need to recast Peter Parker

Mary Jane is a welcome addition, but they still need to recast Peter Parker,., Andrew Garfield is way too old, and looks too old for the part.. The whole reboot was a mistake, and they look like they don't know what they are doing.. Electro is cool in the old comics, but way too generic...

The problem with the first film is they repeated the origin story which Raimi did so well the first time. I thought the sequel would be better by coming into its own, but by adding Mary Jane and Harry Osbourne it'll just make this feel too similar to Raimi's films again.

Oh boy...

Here we go again, Sony.

I say they should wait. Let Gwen and Peter sort things out before MJ is brought in to make things crazy for them.

Not sure I'm getting the same vibe as Spiderman 3 when sony completely interfered and forced raimi into including venom. This seems like a logical next step for the story introduced in the amazing spiderman. I'm just hoping that they work on developing Gwen and Peter's relationship even more, because the chemistry those two have is absolutely perfect. Plus I'm just not quite ready to say goodbye to Gwen Stacy (and Emma Stone, for that matter) just yet. And please, spare us pointless scenes of

I recently caught spiderman 3 on TV the other day, I hadnt see the movie since watching it in theaters, and I was suprised how good it was cause I just remember myself thinking it was shit. Yeah there were shitty scenes still but I enjoyed it awhole lot more then "the amazing spiderman." I'll still probably catch the next spider flick cause I love the character but I dont have high hopes. Electro seems like a villian Raimi would have done it spades, I hope they do something interesting with him
