UPDATE: Sarah Gadon Is Mary Jane? Actress Confirms Joining THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Franchise

<font color=red>UPDATE:</font> Sarah Gadon Is Mary Jane? Actress Confirms Joining THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Franchise

Despite earlier rumors being debunked that the Canadian actress was Sony's new Mary Jane Watson, Sarah Gadon has confirmed herself that she is in fact joining The Amazing Spider-Man franchise.

Following word that actress Shailene Woodley had been cut from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and would instead appear in the third installment, rumors surfaced earlier today that Canadian actress Sarah Gadon would replace Woodley as Mary Jane Watson. While reliable sources supposedly debunked that rumor, Gadon has proclaimed the rumor to true to a certain extent. The Cosmopolis star has informed Entertainment Tonight Canada that she is in fact joining the Marc Webb-directed Sony/Marvel franchise, but she doesn't reveal who she's playing. What do you think?

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.

She's playing Girl Number 3 because there's no one she's playing anyone big or memorable in this cluster[frick] of a movie.
DrDoom - 6/20/2013, 6:13 PM
oh noez fanboy backlash incoming
Reasonnnn - 6/20/2013, 6:15 PM
She's a good actress, a David Cronenberg regular as of late and now she just got her breakout role.
LEVITIKUZ - 6/20/2013, 6:17 PM
Why not cast Eddie Brock or cast JK as Jonah or cast Mysterio while your at it?
TheDIsSilent - 6/20/2013, 6:19 PM
It doesn't say that she's MJ, just that she joined. With that said, she's probably MJ and that means Sony gave in and canned a perfectly good actress for you [frick]tards.

Congratu[frick]ulations, guys.
LucasMend - 6/20/2013, 6:24 PM
She really beautiful and kind of hot. Would be great if she is indeed MJ. Wonder how she looks with red hair.
BabyGroot - 6/20/2013, 6:25 PM
Just [frick]ed up in so many ways for Sony to replace Woodley like that. I can only hope that Gadon acts as good as she looks.
LEVITIKUZ - 6/20/2013, 6:26 PM
Hey TheDIsSilent, I was the one of the few that defended Woodley. Was she my first pick? No but at the same time I didn't care for TASM2 and I feel everyone deserves at least one shot and we should say no to her yet.

Fanboys don't even give someone a shot before they criticize. Smh.

I feel bad for Woodley because its HIGHLY likely she knows what was said on this site. Hundreds of people work on a movie and your telling me none know ComicBookMovie.com or check it? Doubt it especially since Josh interviewed Webb and Emma says she checks it.

A damn shame but at the same time a negative could be a positive.

She will be in her own movie series and not be a part of this cluster[frick] series.
LEVITIKUZ - 6/20/2013, 6:27 PM
I'm here nail. What are we high fiving about because I doubt the Mets won today.

Ocelot - 6/20/2013, 6:28 PM

I cant believe this shit. LMAO at Webb's statement yesterday "creative decisions" he sure looks like a dick now if it turns out that she's in fact playing Mary Jane.
whoa123 - 6/20/2013, 6:29 PM
I feel bad for Woodley
MercenaryR56 - 6/20/2013, 6:30 PM
It seems as if you guys missed the news. This casting is not for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. It's for the third movie and beyond. Mary-Jane will not be in the second movie any longer. Also the recasting was due to scheduling conflicts with Woodley's upcoming franchise Divergent. So you can all calm the **** down.
LEVITIKUZ - 6/20/2013, 6:34 PM

If Jennifer Lawrencecan do Hunger Games & X-Men, also if The Rock can do about I don't know it seems like 10 films a year I see him in, and if RDJ can do Iron Man, Sherlock, and other projects, why can't Woodley do TASM and her other series? Calling bullshit.
YeezusWept - 6/20/2013, 6:36 PM
She reminds me of a young Portia de Rossi.
frova - 6/20/2013, 6:37 PM
Anyone else think they're going to do reshoots for ASM2 with this new actress? I know they said they took Woodley's scenes out, but this casting news is so sudden (within 24 hours) so maybe they're doing last minute reshoots at the end of filming with her. Maybe MJ will be in the film after all (still seems too congested regardless)
Spideyguy94 - 6/20/2013, 6:37 PM
@LEVI Dude if you somehow like TASM 2 I will be shocked. You clearly want to despise the movie.
frova - 6/20/2013, 6:38 PM
maybe not within 24 hours, but you get the point
LEVITIKUZ - 6/20/2013, 6:39 PM

I admit, as much as I dislike all the news on this film I MAY see it. I nearly saw TASM but Lil bro didn't want to go. I like Jamie Foxx so I may see it but so far there isn't much I like about it.
LEVITIKUZ - 6/20/2013, 6:40 PM
If I do like it, I will admit it and eat crow.
MercenaryR56 - 6/20/2013, 6:40 PM

It's all about when they film, sometimes things work out better than others. Having to work around two franchises with Woodley could have been extremely stressful and hard to do, especially when it's a vital character like MJ. Now there are cases like Lawrence where it works out (barely). Part of that working out could be attributed to the fact that both of her franchises are different studios, both of which have different release windows. It all comes down to scheduling, and it's perfectly believable that is the reason, or at least plays a role in the decision.
frova - 6/20/2013, 6:42 PM
I think they'll all be great but I think (regardless of box office success) Cap 2 will be the best of the three April/May 2014 cbm releases.

1. Cap 2
3. ASM2

Can't say anything about GOTG yet because we haven't seen any set pics or know the entire cast (Rocket + Groot please?)
Invictor - 6/20/2013, 6:42 PM
Well, if you look back on Cavill's history of auditioning for films, he could have been Edward Cullen and in Superman Returns. But they turned him down, but now look at him, he played in Man of [frick]ing Steel. Good things come to the people that wait. Everything happens for a reason.
BabyGroot - 6/20/2013, 6:45 PM
i agree with Marauder
Invictor - 6/20/2013, 6:46 PM
But Webb, next time you decide to do a movie, make up your damn mind of who's going to play who, it can really hurt someone if you don't, especially when you filmed about one or two scenes with them in the film.
frova - 6/20/2013, 6:46 PM
I agree with frova
Ocelot - 6/20/2013, 6:47 PM

Divergent comes out next year and they're currently filming it. The Amazing Spider 3 has already got a date secured for 2016, so they'll most likely film between late 2014 and 2015. Woodley's got no upcoming movies schuduled for 2016, so why isn't she coming back for the third film, why recast and not just keep her on for the third film.
Spideyguy94 - 6/20/2013, 6:56 PM
@LEVI At the very least wait until the trailer to judge it, you're being too quick to criticise. Every comic book fan should hope its great and does well.
Abary - 6/20/2013, 6:59 PM

Today is messed up.
TheHawkWithin - 6/20/2013, 7:03 PM
Congrats to all of you virgin fanboys that bitched and moaned and criticized every detail about Woodley's body.
ElBicho - 6/20/2013, 7:05 PM
I've googled and googled and she doesn't have hammer thumbs and she can act, so she's no Megan Fox and a big step up from Not-Giving-Me-Woodley.
LEVITIKUZ - 6/20/2013, 7:05 PM
Yea she said that in a interview MrMartinMarvel. She could be a member here. I could be Emma Stobe, you could be Emma, Gusto could be Emma.

The world may never know.

DrDoom - 6/20/2013, 7:09 PM
What if I told you I was Emma Stone all along
SnapperCarr - 6/20/2013, 7:11 PM
I feel really bad for Woodley. She seems like a really nice person. Maybe she can be part of a comic book movie franchise sometime else.
JDUKE25 - 6/20/2013, 7:11 PM
I'm here @NAIL!!!

LEVITIKUZ - 6/20/2013, 7:13 PM

Emma ain't Canadian. Maybe Doom is this Sarah chick? So that was your plan all along. Get all the other fanboys to talk shit about Woodley to make Sony drop her and get you as MJ. After all Doom's word is law so why would these fanboys ignore you?

You nearly got away with it.

AshleyWilliams - 6/20/2013, 7:14 PM
I want a little of me in Emma.

SnapperCarr - 6/20/2013, 7:25 PM
@MrMartinMarvel Here's the article with Emma saying she visits CBM:
