There have been many rumors about the female lead in the new Spiderman reboot, but we finally have a definitive answer. The Wrap reports that we will not be seeing Mary Jane’s delicious red tresses in the upcoming movie to be filmed, but merely Gwen Stacy played by the lovely Emma Stone. Originally there was an idea thrown around that both Mary Jane and Gen Stacy would be in this movie, creating a love triangle for Peter Parker, but the idea has been scrapped. That’s probably a good thing. Spidey has more important things to think about than stupid ol’ girls. This is what The Wrap had to say:
Meanwhile, an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap 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.
This rides along with the news that Sally Fields is in talks to play Aunt May in the reboot, though that is not anything definite yet. So as we keep getting more and more news about how the movie will be shaping up, how is everyone feeling about it? Excited, pissed off, ambivalent? Let us know in the comments.
