She looks like she'd make a good Betty, but then again Emma Stone looked good for MJ. You never know.

I wanted her for Mary Jane pre-Woodley, but I'm definitely seeing Felicia Hardy.

I'm sure there are other good actors outthere to portray JJJ maybe this time around he could be a rather serious threat to Peter/spidey compared to the comedic role he had in the Raimi series

Why would that confuse the audience? He was a second tier character at best and bringing back the actor who pretty much is JJ is just common sense. Most people won't think twice about it and everyone else will be "hey it's the same guy lol". People aren't stupid.

I'm definitely seeing Betty Brant with Felicity...




It could be someone else though.

Like someone else mentioned, everyone had Emma Stone pegged as MJ and then they threw us the Gwen curveball and Emma knocked it out of the park.

You never know...

It's hard to argue with her being Betty when you post that image lol. But she still looks a bit too young (you know, despite being almost 30). She just looks like someone they would cast for Felicia.

Why? Because everyone's been replaced! It makes no sense for him to come back. Give someone else a chance to portray a new, fresh take on JJJ!

His character was veeery comicbooky! He wouldn't fit into the new universe that Marc established

I thought that's self-explanatory
People would think there's still a connection to the old series, since JJJ is played by the same actor. That's not really helpful when you're trying to build a new franchise with new story-arcs etc.

It is self explanatory, but I wanted to see if you had a more compelling argument because that one does not hold up. As I said, people are not as stupid as you seem to take them for and JJ was barely a second tier character. A lot of people aren't even going to realize the connection and those who do are just going to lulz because it's the same guy. It's not a big deal to have JJ be the same actor.

When I saw Felicity, the first character that came to mind was Betty. My bet's on her.

It's not a big deal but it would be redundant and would limit the casting potential for this new series.

Let's put it this way: GA would be confused, but the next minute they'd be like "Whatever.."

What? How does recasting JJ limit the potential of anything? It's one, minor character and the guy pulled the role off well and is willing to return. It's not resulting in the detriment of anything other than recasting just to recast regardless of context or performance. And redundancy is hardly the right term for this.

No. People are NOT a bunch of sniveling 5 year olds unaware of what irony is, which you seem to take them for.

It limits the potential of a new actor playing the role and bringing a fresh interpretation and face for the character in a series that needs to distance itself from the Raimi films. When you do that, you also limit the potential for a different JJJ in terms of appearance, voice, tone and performance, regardless of how he's written in the script. Having JK Simmons reprise just because he did well in the role imo would be a very lame and uninspired casting decision.

As everyone else have said, either Betty or Felicia.

I hope she can hold back her accent in the film.

No, she's Peters age. Everyone assumes she's older because she worked at the bugle when Pete was in school. She dropped out of school to work. She's the same age as Peter just about. Read Untold Tales of Spider-Man.

If she was playing Betty Brant, why don't they just tell us? Not exactly the most exciting role IMO. If it was Felicia Hardy on the other hand...

Out of curiosity, are there any female villains that would be worth putting on screen? That would be cool to see Spider-Man fighting a woman instead of the usual male villains. Perhaps Black Cat or silver sable.
