Micro-News: DIVERGENT Stills, New AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Co-Producer, Jack Ryder And More

Shailiene Woodly may be out of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 but she's starring in her own budding franchise, Divergent. A Castle alum joins Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Jack Ryder's almost cameo in Man of Steel and Arrow Season 2 talk.

Earlier today, it was revealed that Mary Jane Watson will not be introduced in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and there's even a few unconfirmed rumors that Sony is looking to recast the role moving forward. This all depends on whether Divergent is a hit and if it spawns a sequel. Looking at the stills below [via EW], do you think Divergent will be the next Hunger Games as some sites claim?

Haynes - "I think there's going to be a point where Roy's going to have to figure out what's going to be next. Is he hopefully becoming Oliver's sidekick? I have a feeling that Oliver's going to need a little bit of help [with what's coming next] and isn't going to want to take that on by himself."

Glen Woodburn (Chad Krowchuk), the blogger Lois Lane (Amy Adams) turns to when Perry (Laurence Fishburne) won't publish her initial story on Superman (Henry Cavill) was originally meant to be Jack Ryder a.k.a. The Creeper. When that hit a wall, Goyer briefly entertained and then dismissed using Batman girlfriend Vicki Vale. This was reported earlier in the larger Empire podcast post but it may have been missed as there was no transcript.

David S. Goyer - "It's an All The President's Men reference for sure. I wanted that character to be Jack Ryder but DC comics wouldn't let us do it. I don't remember the issue that stopped it from happening, I think it was a rights thing, but we only found out three weeks before production started so we had to think quick. I wasn't going to go for Vicki Vale, but I was desperate to come up with a new character that would work. In the end, this is how it happened, and we got to have fun with the Wikileaks thing too."

According to Dave 'The Animal' Bautista, filming on James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy starts Monday. The director has previously revealed that pre-shoots have already begun in England.
