There's a lot of naivety about Hollywood going on in this thread...

This is an unusual move...and likely for multiple reasons...but it has happened before. The first film's mixed results in terms of its final cut and Sony's hiring of Orci and Kurtzman to "punch up" this script don't bode well for the shape this one is currently in.

Marc Webb currently works for Sony. His 'vision' is limited by what Sony gives and allows. To put it bluntly, he's someone they can 'control.'

Don't be naive to think that he has complete or even majority 'say' over the production, and that he's truly looking out for you, the fans...

Sony masters this franchise when and how they want.

Don't think Gabon will be in ASM2 but I wouldn't be surprised if her name is being thrown around Sony for ASM3 which MJ would likely appear . I also doubt she's the only actress they're looking at. Other than that , yeah, I doubt that anyone will be cast as MJ for ASM 2 because she's not gonna be in it. However, I wouldn't be surprisd if Webb and Crew are already looking at actresses for the part and throwing names around given that they're gonna have to hit the ground running for ASM 3 shortly after ASM 2's release.

By the looks of it, they're going to be choosing an unknown. An unknown in the sense of an actor who has not been in the public eye at-all.

This girl, Sarah Gadon, does not look a great deal more like Mary Jane than Woodely. But she is definitely an upgrade in my opinion.






She has more of a classic beauty look to her which could work better for the character.


For anyone interested here is the article discussing why she might take over in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

I don't get the idea that Sony would toss out Woodley because of Divergent. The Host and Beautiful Creatures show that these young adult novel adaptations are not a sure thing and Fox didn't get rid of Jennifer Lawrence after she booked The Hunger Games. Which was more of a sure thing than Divergent. Wouldn't they want an actress like that in their film?

Exactly.

Jennifer Lawrence is managing just fine with Catching Fire and X-Men while doing smaller movies on the side. No reason Woodley can't do the same.

This quote from another poster on another board sums things up

Quote:
Not sure why she can't find the time for both like what Jennifer Lawrence is doing with X-men and The Hunger Games.
Quote:
Lionsgate and Fox coordinated shooting schedules, with Fox pushing the shoot for DOFP back a bit, to make sure Jennifer Lawrence could do both. Sony is looking to crank out Spider-Man films at a very fast pace, leaving little wiggle room for coordination with another franchise.

it looks to be more of a schedule thing, not that they don't want shailene. divergent is a trilogy, so it might be hard for her to shoot that and tasm3 and 4 in the next 4 years, plus all of the other projects she's been getting. they can make it work, of course, but that's the reason why it might not.

Just wanted to say, I think Peter should at least get to meet Mary Jane, even if it's just the one scene. Actors come back for reshoots all the time and I doubt it would take long to have Andrew do one scene with this actress so that Peter has at least met her. To make it like, Liz Banks as Betty Brant for instance, just very brief. Thoughts?

I'm all for small scenes with Mary Jane being an introduction to her. Making it less jarring for her appearance in future movies.

Jennifer Lawrence was well on her way to becoming one of the biggest stars on the planet. You do anything you can to accommodate that, and try and keep her in your franchise.

Sony will be pumping these films out for 2016 and 2018. Very little time for any sort of schedule conflict and Shailene isn't that big a star (yet) that they would move their release dates around in order to ensure she's a part of the movie.

Fox would be willing to postpone shooting for Jennifer, but Sony won't be budging from that date if they can help it, and they'll not risk having to recast either.

Realistically, it would have benefited all involved, particularly Summit/Lionsgate to work around any Spiderman commitments Shailene had, as her exposure in ASM2/3/4 could have boosted Divergent, which is no guaranteed success, as others have said.

I highly doubt Summit would be willing to negotiate and move the schedule around, for the simple reason that that novel franchises are very hard work, take a lot of time and are normally churned out very quickly. Look at Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Twilight and other popular ones. They are normally released every year if they can make it, if not, every other year.

Anyways can people not just get over Shailene now? She isnt going to be Mary Jane anymore it seems.

Visually, Sarah Gadon is a better fit:

I think we should get rid of this thread and call it Sarah Gadon IS Mary Jane.
