Spider-man fanatics, here is a fresh casting news for you! IGN confirmed that there will be no Mary Jane on the Spider-man reboot.
Hot on the sticky heels of yesterday’s Uncle Ben and Aunt May casting news comes word that Mary Jane Watson — longtime love interest of Peter Parker – will not be in the Spider-Man reboot at all.
According to The Wrap “an individual familiar with the project has told The Wrap that Mary Jane Watson will not appear in the film after all, as the character is not currently featured in James Vanderbilt’s screenplay, and apparently never was.”
We’d previously heard that both MJ (played, of course, by Kirsten Dunst in the Sam Raimi trilogy of Spidey films) and Peter’s other famous girlfriend, Gwen Stacy, would be in the new movie. Emma Stone has since been cast as Stacy.
“Evidently, there had been some discussions about Emma Stone playing red-haired MJ, but once she was cast as Gwen Stacy, the filmmakers decided to trust their instincts and stick with one love interest,” adds the site.
So they’re going with their original script and not rewriting on the fly? What a novel idea.
Production begins on the film in December.
So what do you think about this development?
