Mary Jane and Harry Osborn Are Being Cast For The Amazing Spider-Man Sequel


If you were one of those fans happy Mary Jane Watson was left out of the Spider-Man reboot, I’m sorry, she’s back. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is looking to cast both Mary Jane and Harry Osborn. One actress is already up for the role plus, we’ve got some rumors on who the villain might be! 

So it seems Gwen Stacy might have some competition for Peter Parker’s heart in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Variety is reporting not only will Mary Jane be in the film but actress Shailene Woodley is already being considered for the role. You may know her from The O.C. or The Secret Life of the American Teenager. No word yet on who might play Harry.

Whoever does land the role will join Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone for what is sure to be a drama-filled sequel. Meanwhile, a rumor is floating around that the villain will be Electro, an electrical engineer who got superpowers after being struck by lightning.

Marc Webb (I laugh every time) is back to direct and the film is slated for May 2, 2014. What do you think of Mary Jane and Harry being included in the film and what are your thoughts on Woodley for the role? Personally I think she’s a bit young.

    I was a little sad that Emma Stone wasn’t Mary Jane just because she makes such a cute red head.

    Webb hates Mary Jane Watson and given the way he wrote Gwen and Aunt May in the first movie, this is going to be fun (can’t wait for the slut shaming jokes!) *eyeroll*

    Yeah, I’ve been trying to keep an open mind because we have so little to go on, but so little to go on includes all of Marc Webb’s interview comments about how Gwen is so much smarter and her love is truer than MJ’s, and the flatness of Gwen on screen which even Emma Stone’s immense talent couldn’t quite salvage… my hopes are not high.
