Shailene Woodley: 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Star?

Shailene Woodley is moving on from Ricky for Spider-Man.

The 20-year-old actress is in talks to star as Mary Jane Watson in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, THR reports.

Mary Jane is the red-headed love interest of Peter Parker/Spider-Man played by Andrew Garfield.

Kirsten Dunst formerly played the role in the Tobey Maguire trilogy.

JJJ Fun Fact: When Shailene accepted her MTV Movie Award earlier this year, Emma Stone and Andrew were the presenters!

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Shailene playing Mary Jane — YAY or NAY?

    NAY. She’s a fine actress, but I don’t think she has the right “look” for Mary Jane Watson. And since this is a comic book movie, it’s all about the look.

  • Tia

    That would be awesome you go girl.

  • midz


    I agree. She’s a great actress but i don’t think she is right for Mary Jane.

  • Kimberly

    WAY TO THE NAY! seriously. I love that girl. but no. and Spiderman is already changing to mary jane in the next movie? Wth. why don’t they take emme again but as a red head LOL would be fine.

  • q

    nooooooooooooo! i want gwen! emma stone! i thought gwen was going to die until the third movie! :(

  • Sade

    huh! What happened to Emma Stone? Shailene Woodley is a fantastic actress. But I’d prefer Emma & I don’t know if. Emma and Andrew are still dating. But if they are, all the more reason to keep her and plus Emma is an awesome actress of course. : ) But hmm we’ll see how this goes?

  • Kella

    HEY TO THE NAY! Sorry, Shay, you’re gorgeous, but you’re just not the Mary Jane Watson that TASM2 needs. Personally, I’m horrified that Emma could only be in the first movie, ’cause she’s a red head and would’ve been an absolute fab MJ, but if she can’t, someone other than Shailene should. Sorry, but it is true :(

    @Sade: don’t worry emma and andrew are still going strong

  • jack

    It should have been Lily Collins. Hotter, more talented and more right. At least we get her in MORTAL INSTRUMENTS soon.

  • Taylor

    Yay! I love Shailene Woodley. She is beautiful, she has an angelic glow. She is so pretty. Although she misses the red hair to me it does not matter because look at everything else they changed in this NEW Spider-Man movie. They made Gwen Stacey his love interest. That was never suppose to happen. Spider-Man was always in love with Mary Jane. So why not Shailene Woodley?

  • Taylor

    @sara: Um…no they aren’t. It was stupid to make Gwen Stacey and Spider-Man together. I don’t care what anyone says they did not have strong chemistry. I seen better chemistry than that. I seriously want Mary Jane and Spider-Man together. That is the way its suppose to be.

  • Sky

    Interesting .. Shailene would have never popped up in my head as a possible choice to play MJ. But, I would definitely watch it so YAY ..

  • sarah

    @Kimberly: lol I totally agree. Emma can just do both!!:D

  • midz


    Its also cause in the comic spiderman accidently kills Gwen Stacey!
