It is being reported that Shailene Woodley ("The Descendants", television's "The Secret Life Of The American Teenager") has landed the role of Peter Parker's central love interest, Mary Jane, in the upcoming sequel "The Amazing Spider-Man 2".
Here is what THR had to say about Mary Jane's role in the second and, then later, third installment in the franchise:
But 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.
Andrew Garfield is set to reprise his role as the titular character and Emma Stone is expected to return as the aforementioned Gwen Stacy.
