Shailene Woodley might be Mary Jane in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is moving ahead at… well, an amazing pace really, and Variety recently revealed that the Mary Jane character is set to appear and also speculated on possible villains.

Shailene Woodley is apparently the top choice to play the role of Peter Parker’s infamous crush after Kirsten Dunst defined the character in the original trilogy. At the young age of 20, Woodley is already a veteran after trucking away in TV roles since 2001. Her big break came last year in The Descendants, where she was genuinely great as George Clooney’s aggressive teenage daughter.

The other rumour circulating is that the villain chosen for this sequel is Electro, known from the comics as a bank robber with a power over electricity. This new series seems to be forging its own mythology, so we can’t really go on the back story of Electro as an indication of where this sequel will go, but hopefully returning director Marc Webb can make this instalment a bit more interesting than his dull, workmanlike first film.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits cinemas May 2014.
