New Details On Shailene Woodley's Role As 'Mary Jane' In AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Sequel

It appears as if The Descendants actress has finalised a deal to play 'Mary Jane Watson' in Marc Webb's sequel to The Amazing Spider, with one reliable source claiming that she will only have a very small part in the film before becoming an "integral lead" in the third instalment of the new franchise.


Earlier today, it was revealed that Shailene Woodley had signed up for the lead role in Lionsgate's adaptation of Veronica Roth's Divergent (a similar type of young adult novel to The Hunger Games apparently). That understandably led to speculation that she wouldn't have time to ply 'Mary Jane Watson' in The Amazing Spider-Man sequel. Well, not so, according to The Hollywood Reporter. According to the site, Woodley has already "booked the coveted role" which, "is proving to be only a very small part in Amazing Spider-Man 2 but blossoms into an integral lead for the planned third movie as the studio seeks to build to the classic "Death of Gwen Stacy" story. Perhaps we'll only see the actress for the iconic, "Face It Tiger. You Just Hit The Jackpot!" scene! What do you guys think about this? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!
