According to The Hollywood Reporter, Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) will be playing Mary Jane Watson in the franchise's next installment. Woodley has a pretty booked schedule but "the Mary Jane role is proving to be only a very small part in Amazing Spider-Man 2 but blossoms into an integral lead for the planned third movie as the studio seeks to build to the classic 'Death of Gwen Stacy' story."
Meanwhile, ComingSoon.net is also reporting that "Andrew Garfield is confirmed to return for the May 2, 2014 release and Emma Stone is a near-certainty as well."
