What is this world coming to! No Mary Jane for Spiderman!? I mean thats like taking the peanut butter out of PB and J! But all seriousness we have our Spiderman for director Marc Webb‘s upcoming Spidey reboot — in actor Andrew Garfield but now casting for Peter Parkers/Spidey love interest has begun and reports say that’s its not for the character of lovable red-head Mary Jane!
If your a fan of the comics – like I’m obviously not – then you’ll naturally search google for the next in line to the Peter Parker chamber throne and by my books its Gwen Stacey. The character which first appeared in the films by the third (which was significantly the last, and the worst), predominately appeared in the comics and was originally Parker’s first love — even before the character of Mary Jane. Gwen was played by Bryce Dallas in Sam Raimi‘s Spiderman 3 — whether its Stacey or a completely new character we won’t know for some time.
As for casting rumors, fingers a pointing towards Mary Elizabeth Winstead who recently stared in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, is one of the first known aspirants for the unkown role who has official dropped out of the running, with other rumored candidates including actress’ Lily Collins, Ophelia Lovibond, Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots and Emma Roberts. Which can be seen in a spectrum below (thanks to Screen Rant):
