Speaking with MTV News at the Sundance Film Festival, actress Shailene Woodley comments on her role as Mary Jane Watson in next year's anticipated follow-up to The Amazing Spider-Man. While she obviously couldn't reveal many details for her take on Peter Parker's most prominent love interest, she shares her excitement for working with Andrew Garfield (Spider-Man/Peter Parker), Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) and director Marc Webb, and also comments on her being a fan of the legendary Marvel character. "Spider-Man has always been my favorite super hero dude, since I was a little girl. I think there's something really special about flying. When I watched the previous Spider-Man [with] Andrew Garfield, he made me feel invincible," she said. "I think Marc Webb is amazing. I'm so stoked to work with Andrew and Emma [Stone], they're the best of the best." Of course, we can expect to see some sort of love triangle between Peter, Gwen and MJ, and Woodley had this to say when asked about the possibility. "Honestly, I don't know too many details about the film yet. But yeah, we'll see." Filming is expected to begin next month, so expect more news for the film very soon.



The currently untitled sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Sally Field and Shailene Woodley. The film is set to swing into theaters May 2nd, 2014.

God i hope they don't go for the love triangle. Looking forward to seeing her in the movie though.

flying.....
AlexdoxA - 1/18/2013, 4:01 PM
flying?!?! #1 fan
TrueRedBlue - 1/18/2013, 4:02 PM
Obviously by 'flying' she meant being able to swing so gently high and fast in the air. Read between the lines, bro ..
Nick56 - 1/18/2013, 4:04 PM
Of course they are going to do the love triangle because the awkward teen romance wasn't boring enough in the first film. Honestly, nothing about this film has given me any hope so far.

...Obviously

Hated the casting choice, hate the direction they're taking and I hate that Electro's going to kill Gwen, not Green Gobiln. What the [frick] are you doing, Sony? I don't want a [frick]ing love triangle. I don't want MJ yet. I want Green Goblin done justice!
I want this to be good, but I don't support any decision they've made about it.

At least she's not as DISGUSTING as Kirsten Dunst

What you said. Virtually every word.

LMAOOO so fake...

looking forward to the movie. spider-man trilogy by sam raimi was great and the new ones will be too.
GoILL - 1/18/2013, 4:23 PM
First movie really didn't do anything for me but i'm interested in seeing a trailer or some set pics for this one.
Pending - 1/18/2013, 4:24 PM
Seems like she can pull it off, though I'm fine with Gwen getting the boot; couldn't stand how boring and unneeded she was in the first film.
ManofSteel22 - 1/18/2013, 4:27 PM
Bet she's never read a [frick]ing comic in her life!

Trueredblue only sees what he wants to see...


This bitch better act like maryjane unlike emmas gwen who acts like maryjane.

I really want to have faith in this but all signs are pointing to this not going well. I loved Garfield as Peter, Stone as Gwen, and like this girl as MJ (my choice would have been a little more... curvy but hey) but Jaimie Fox as Electro? DAFUQQQ! And if they go for a love triangle or any kin of hom wrecker crap with MJ i will be pissed. I think this should hav been about GG, introduced MJ in a small role, killed of Gwen leaving Peter in dark place and then explore his relationship with MJ (and maybe the symbiote?) In a 3rd

Smh... God I miss Raimi

Anyone else read SpidaTravs post in an accent?
DudeGuyMan - 1/18/2013, 4:37 PM
Electro wont kill Gwen. It's just a sequel people.

TASM > Spidey 2 > Spidey > Spidey 3

@ Shamo

HAH! Been awhile since you've seen Raimi's trilogy hasn't it?
PeterParkerofGotham62 - 1/18/2013, 4:46 PM
I actually have faith in Jamie Foxx ever since I've seen Django but with Woodley I'm not too sure, haven't seen anything that she has acted in.
ToTheManInTheColdSweat - 1/18/2013, 4:49 PM
good for her. remember this quote years from now, when she pulls a mickey rourke on us, boys

I recently watched Raimi's trilogy with my son, and even Spiderman 2, which I felt was the best, doesn't hold up as well as something like Iron Man has. THe part with the train is still a great scene, but the rest of 1 and 2 weren't that great. Kinda cartoony, especially the first movie (particularly when he's designing his costume, "symbol?"), and really to me Amazing Spiderman is to the Raimi movies what Batman Begins was to the Burton movies. Not saying one is better, but the newer version makes the older one look way too goofy for my taste.

Oddly, I appreciated Spiderman 3 more than I used to, but it's still the weakest of the three.
Moakynubs - 1/18/2013, 4:50 PM
I'm not too sure about her, but we'll see. :|
animeex - 1/18/2013, 4:51 PM
MJ still is not hot enough and I love how every single person in a super hero movie just happens to be into that particular hero over the rest. A little more than coincidence when it's all the time and every actor or actress says it.
CavEl - 1/18/2013, 5:01 PM
Dafug is she talking about flying?

Anyway, I never post a comment just to hate...BUT GODDAMN!! She's so fine! But am I the only one who thinks it is hilarious that a 30 year old is playing teenage Spider-Man, but his two girlfriends are both under 25? =D

No, just me?
Shamo - 1/18/2013, 5:07 PM
nah, saw the trilogy a few months back. none of them hold up that well. in comparison to TASM, Spidey 2 had a much better script and fight choreography but thats about it. the directing was subpar. plenty of poorly framed sequences and Franco was terrible.

TASM's cinematography, acting and overall directing blows Raimi's out of the water. so i guess it just comes down to what you prefer. i'm referring to Spidey 2 vs. TASM btw. 1 was just okay and 3 was horrible.

btw, Woodley was good in The Descendants. but physically, she doesn't look too "mary jane'ish" to me. not to say shes not attractive.

Mary Jane is the pregnant chick from that Secret Life show and Electro is black? What planet am I living orn?
MrHulkSmashin - 1/18/2013, 5:30 PM
Aaaaaaand I'm starting to lose faith in the film.
"My number one super hero dude." "I love how he can fly"
TayDee - 1/18/2013, 5:39 PM
Whoever said there was a love triangle between Gwen and MJ is wrong. Peter always preferred Gwen before she died, Mary Jane just use to flirt with Pete a little. Anyways, I hope they don't kill Gwen in this or the next movie, it's just too soon.

@TrueRedBlue - people don't have time for reading between the lines. knee-jerk fanboy rage is all the rage :)
