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

My Spidey Sense Is Tingling

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.
