Early talks does not translate into done deal, but the situation remains the same: at the moment, Shailene Woodley appears to be the front-runner for Mary Jane Watson in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”
Judging purely on responses I’ve seen online, Woodley’s possible casting hasn’t been universally embraced. Some feel she’s too young for the part, while others think she doesn’t have the super-model appeal that Ms. Watson is so known for in the comics. Others are very happy with the potential choice — yours truly included — with movies like “The Descendants” proving that she has what it takes to stand shoulder to shoulder with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone on an acting level if nothing else.
But let’s hear what you think. Are you a fan of Woodley as Watson? Vote in our poll below and explain yourselves in the comments section!
