No Mary Jane for Spider-Man Reboot
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony/Columbia’s SPIDER-MAN reboot will NOT feature Mary Jane Watson as Peter Parker’s (Andrew Garfield) love interest.
It also claims that the film will focus more on the early comic’s high school setting than the first Sam Raimi-Tobey Maguire SPIDER-MAN film.
A number of actresses are auditioning for director Marc Webb to play the thus far nameless female lead, including Teresa Palmer (THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE), Emma Roberts (flown in from the SCREAM 4 set), Imogen Poots (FRIGHT NIGHT remake), Ophelia Lovibond (NOWHERE BOY), and Lilly Collins (PRIEST). Mary Elizabeth Winstead (SCOTT PILGRIM Vs. THE WORLD) may also have been under consideration.
