The sequel to Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spiderman” is trying to finalize their cast before beginning production on a tentative February start date. Andrew Garfield is reprising his role as the web-throwing superhero as well as Emma Stone returning to play Gwen Stacey. Shailene Woodley, most commonly known for her strong performance in Alexander Payne’s “The Descendants”, where she played George Clooney’s daughter, looks like she will snag the role of Mary Jane Watson. That leaves the main focus on a very important role to fill, that of Harry Obsorn.
The character in the film is said to be dark and edgy, edging towards the path comic book fans know he eventually goes down. Actors currently in the mix for the role include “Chronicle’s” Dane DeHaan, “Melancholia’s” Brady Corbet and “Tetro’s” Alden Ehrenreich.
Given the tight production timeline, one can anticipate this role will be filled fairly quickly. We’ll keep you posted as the story develops.
