This news shouldn’t come as surprising to fans of The Amazing Spider-Man, but it’s great to hear some sort of confirmation. A few weeks ago news broke that actress Shailene Woodley was in talks to play Mary Jane Watson in the sequel to the movie, with Electro appearing as the main villain. Well, it was reported last night that Woodley had landed the lead role in a new young adult Hunger Games-style movie Divergent, and while talking about that The Hollywood Reporter revealed a small tidbit about her part in the rest of the Spidey trilogy…
“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.”
This should give us some sort of confirmation that we’ll definitely see Green Goblin in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and it will be interesting to see how the story plays out now. I guess it was fairly obvious that Mary Jane wouldn’t be the main love interest in the sequel, and I’m glad I was right because I did not want a love triangle going on.
