Well, this ties up one loose end in the Amazing Spider-Man Mary Jane hullabaloo. Sarah Gadon has just tweeted:
To all those a twitter, I will not be playing MJ in Spider-Man. I have a role in the film, bit it is not that one

So let’s take it for now that Mary Jane Watson won’t appear in the next film at all but will first surface in the third instalment.
I still find it hard to believe that Shailene Woodley will be coming back, not after everything I read and heard, but it would sure be nice if she does. She’s great.
Something in me just can shake the notion that Sony are going to go after Jennifer Lawrence, and hard. Might be years until we know, though – Amazing Spider-Man 3 isn’t due out until 2016.
