Seemingly confirming the rumors that Mary Jane Watson role is very small in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, Shailene Woodley was caught sporting her new blonde look while lefting her Soho Hotel in New York in March, 13th.

Shailene was recently cast to star Veronica Roth's DIVERGENT. In this story, people are divvied up into factions with strict rules of conduct and characteristics, such as the selfless people of the Abnegation faction or the brave and violent Dauntless. When you turn 16, you have to take an aptitude test -- sort of like the SATs but with electrodes! -- to find out which faction suits you best. It's a big deal to go from one faction to another, so when our heroine Tris tests for the Dauntless and leaves her family in Abnegation behind, it's wrenching and, as it turns out, dangerous.

Here's what wikipedia has to say about the character that the new Mary Jane is playing:

Beatrice is the main character and narrator of Divergent. She is described as being short, youthful looking and moderately attractive, with wide, blue eyes and blonde hair that falls to the small of her back; she soon trims her hair to her jawline. Tris is 16 years old and is the younger child of Andrew and Natalie Prior. She has an older brother named Caleb Prior.
Tris comes from Abnegation, which is the selfless and giving faction. When she is sixteen, she decides to leave that faction, and join the brave, daring Dauntless. Tris has to get through the initiation process before becoming a real Dauntless, and if she fails, she will be factionless. So, she fights, shoots, throws knives, and must fight her way out of her worst fears imaginable, and if she does, she will be a Dauntless forever.
While training, Tris gets three tattoos: three ravens above her collar bone, representing the three family members that she left behind; the Abnegation symbol on one shoulder; and the Dauntless symbol on the other. Tris is stubborn and tough. Thin and weak at first, she becomes muscular during training as a Dauntless initiate. During her third initiation stage she learned she only has seven fears: getting eaten alive by crows, being drowned while standing in a glass tank, drowning in the ocean, being burned alive by Peter, being kidnapped, intimacy (with Tobias), and being forced to shoot her family. She and Tobias (Four) Eaton soon fall in love but decide to keep their love life secret, but reveal their relationship by kissing when Tris finds out that she has become a member of Dauntless.



Regardless how much screen time Shailene Woodley will have in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, it's certain that she will be an integral character in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3, for reasons most of us comic book fans know. The fact that she has just a small part in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 makes us question ourselves again though, which Mary Jane Watson is Shailene Woodley playing in this new take on one of the most prominent female characters in comics?



Regardless if Marc Webb is going for the girl next door, smoking hot supermodel or both, I'm sure that Shailene Woodley is up to the task.

In “The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2,” for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past. The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner, with a previous draft by James Vanderbilt, and based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are the producers. The latest chapter in the Spider-Man story is set for release in 3D on May 2, 2014.

Out of all the good set pictures taken of Shailene, you guys still are focusing on the bad ones. Try and be a celebrity for a day and see how many pictures of you, taken by fans and paparazzi, turns out to make you look good.
Ever paused a movie, video, etc. and started bursting out laughing because of how stupid someone looks in the middle of talking, smiling, laughing, or whatever. This is basically a paused moment, where you see the ugly parts of a beautiful thing.

I'm glad it was a short role, that's how MJ needs to be introduced at first.

You guys are ridiculous. Not that I want to defend her or anything, but the morale here is terrible. Every single day it's constant berating. It's not even funny, it's pretty disgusting. All this and she's not even bad looking. And why does her looks and what you may find appealing all that important? And so much talk about a girl and some you guys call yourselves men? But then again I suppose if it's not this it's complaining and being cynical about every little thing posted here. Children have more maturity than what is seen here. Of all the sites I frequent, this one definitely has the worst community. I love the site for the information posted, but you guys really kill it. Nice going.

@Rob2814
Completely agreed. It's a never ending cycle.
B4TM4N - 3/14/2013, 2:05 PM
Gud Dam! gurl is ah-ug-ley. Given, she maybe able to act. But still.....Guuud dam. Which dick casted her as MJ.
B4TM4N - 3/14/2013, 2:43 PM
Ding Dong! The Witch is DONE. Which old Witch? The Wicked Witch! Sorry sorry! my bad I thought this was wizard of oz.
JDUKE25 - 3/14/2013, 3:12 PM
@Rob you sure showed him lmao

@Rob2814

First of, f uck you!! Kunt!! Second, shoving fingers up your ass hole still make you a virgin so stop kidding yourself. As for me being a virgin, ask your mum she will tell you otherwise. She screams like a mule by the way. If she's dead then I'm sorry I shouldn't have f ucked so hard. Third Halo, X box,are you f ucking kidding. It's PS and MGS all the way. Fourth.....there's nothing wrong with mountain dew. F ucking Insect commenting on my comment like that. Read between the lines next time. My comment was posted as a joke. Dick head!!!

@Rob2814

Oh and Fifth.. Your right about one thing. I couldn't score anyone as hot as Shailene... So I scored YOUR MUM instead.
Jaspion - 3/14/2013, 6:00 PM
Was she stung by a bee in the face?
jimdotbeep - 3/14/2013, 7:02 PM
I really hope this is some kind of red herring like when Chistoper Nolan tricked the press into thinking that Joseph Gordon Levitt wasn't playing Robin.

I know there will be cries of Sexism but Us Comic book Fans have always wanted the movies to match up with the sorce material. The Fact of the Matter is that Mary-Jane Watson was the super hot girl that was in Peter Parker's High School class that he had no reason to believe would give him the time of day. None of us can go back in time and make Stan Lee end up with an average looking woman. If it bugs you that much Read Green Lantern. His love interest (Carrol Ferris) is pretty plain looking and is his employer to top it off.
IronSpider691 - 3/14/2013, 7:28 PM
Damn, when they said small role they meant it.
CoulsonLives - 3/14/2013, 7:49 PM
@Rob totally agree!
SoulAlone - 3/15/2013, 12:04 AM
She isn't an unattractive person, but this felt like an opportunity to fix one of the only issues I had with Raimi's version: Kirsten Dundst ain't no covergirl. But that's their point I guess...again. MJ'll be the "girl next door/smalltown girl with big dreams." *shrug*
CaptainAmerica31 - 3/15/2013, 8:20 AM
Why isn't this on main? It seems like main worthy news because it would put an end to this whole " movie is cramped" and " love triangle" people keep complaining about
drummerboy - 3/15/2013, 5:18 PM
If you want producers, directors and related 'suits' to value fanboy opinion, you might want to shift our credibility to the more positive side by not coming off as a bunch of sexist crybabies! Sure, we're all entitled to our opinions, but no one is going to care about said opinions if the perception about posters here and sites like SHH (ie: fanboys) is that we are immature, fickle and impossible to please.... So why try?! This is not directed at everyone here....but if the shoe fits??!! Shailene is MJ for now...deal with it, give the girl a chance, and allow her to keep some of her dignity and self respect! Just my two cents, and 'much respect ' to all the positive peeps out there!!

@B4TM4N: I know I should laugh, but that was hilarious.

i think Shaline Woodley will do a fine job
NoJobBOB - 3/16/2013, 3:00 PM
I expected more from MJ as far as her character goes. I didn't know she would already be done filming this early.

Oh well.

Still ready for this movie.
BaneNascent - 3/16/2013, 7:21 PM
The woodley defenders are busting me up! She doesn't meet expectation for the character (A lot of us are disappointed). But her part is small. Maybe we'll get a Katie Holmes/Terrence Howard style swap out for the third one. They can do these things, they've done them before.
theowl - 3/17/2013, 3:24 AM
Its always the same haha.. people will complain about Shailene now.. but when they first get to see a trailer or something official then everybody wil change thier opinion. Just like the joker in The Dark knight
