According to THR The Descendants co-star Shailene Woodley has landed the role of Mary Jane in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. There's still no official word from Sony Pictures on the matter, but there's a little bit of information on the character's role in the sequel,
The Mary Jane role 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.
So don't expect Mary Jane to play a big part in the story until the third film roles around. Marc Webb will be back to direct the sequel, and Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone will be back to reprise their roles. The script for the sequel comes from Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner and James Vanderbilt.
I enjoyed the first film, and I'm looking forward to seeing the story continue! Who would you like to see as the villain in the next movie?
