By Alexa on Oct 10, 2012 News The Amazing Spider-Man Sequel // 0 Comments

Peter Parker, you two-timing devil. EW has confirmed that Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) has been offered the role of Mary Jane Watson in the upcoming sequel to last summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man. If the deal goes through, Woodley would join Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and director Marc Webb on the film, starting production in early 2013. (Variety first broke the story.)

The news could scarcely come at a better time for Woodley; ABC Family just decided to end her series The Secret Life of the American Teenager after its upcoming fifth season.

Played by Kirsten Dunst in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy, the red-headed Mary Jane (or MJ) was introduced in the comics as a romantic rival of Parker’s other love interest, Gwen Stacy, and ultimately becomes the love of Peter’s life (and, for a time, his wife). The fact that MJ is appearing in the sequel suggests that this Spidey franchise reboot could be aiming to recreate the ultimate end of Gwen Stacy’s story in the Spider-Man comic book canon. Commence fanboy freak-out.

MJ isn’t the only Spidey character standby set to appear in The Amazing Spider-Man 2either.The filmmakers are also reportedly on the hunt for an actor to play Parker’s bestie-turned-nemesis Harry Osborn, played by James Franco in the Raimi films. But fans may have to wait for the debut of Harry’s nefarious father, Norman Osborn (a.k.a. The Green Goblin): Currently, one of the possible contenders for the main villain is Electro, a character hinted at in the post-credits sequence of The Amazing Spider-Man.

The sequel is set for a May 2, 2014 release date.
