Late last month, we reported that Marc Webb and Andrew Garfield would return for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. With Emma Stone still expected to return as Gwen Stacy, the superhero sequel may also include love interest Mary Jane Watson.
The Descendants star Shailene Woodley is reportedly in talks to take on the role. Watson was the main female character in Sam Raimi Spider-Man series, with Kirsten Dunst (Bachelorette) portraying her.
Woodley is the studio's top choice, according to Variety. Columbia Pictures is also in the process of casting the role of Harry Osborn, portrayed by James Franco (Pineapple Express) in the Raimi franchise.
While there is no official word on who the villain is going to be, rumors have been circulating that Electro may be in the mix. What do you think of Woodley as Mary Jane? Let us know in the comments section!
