Sarah Gadon Joins 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' Isn't Playing Mary Jane Watson

Welcome to the big time Sarah Gadon. Granted, she kinda already has after bagging the female lead for Universal's "Dracula," but the actress who has recently been cutting her teeth on Cronenberg father/son films ("A Dangerous Method," "Cosmopolis," "Antiviral") is now spinning an even bigger web.

Sarah Gadon

Update: Jeff Sneider tweets: "100% CONFIRMED: Sarah Gadon IS in Amazing Spider-Man 2 briefly. She is NOT playing Mary Jane Watson, who will NOT appear until Part THREE." So there you go -- start your speculation engine....

Welcome to the big time Sarah Gadon. Granted, she kinda already arrived after bagging the female lead for Universal's "Dracula," but the actress who has recently been cutting her teeth on Cronenberg father/son films ("A Dangerous Method," "Cosmopolis," "Antiviral") is now spinning an even bigger web.

ETCanada tweeted last night that Gadon "confirmed to us that she is joining The Amazing Spider-Man franchise," but they didn't have any details on her role. Of course this lead everyone to believe that Gadon has picked up the role of Mary Jane Watson, recently left vacant by Shailene Woodley, who had her scenes cut from "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" due to the apparent streamlining/removal of her story to focus on Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy. Of course, it later emerged that the role of MJ in "The Amazing Spider-Man 3," and probably the recently announced "The Amazing Spider-Man 4," was going to be recast -- so is Gadon the new choice? That's what many folks are guessing....

We'll find out soon enough, but it seems weird that they would be casting MJ for the third movie -- which isn't due until 2016 -- when the second movie hasn't come out yet. Particularly when it has been made clear the character won't be appearing in part two. Could we be seeing yet another new character being tacked on to the growing "The Amazing Spider-Man 2"? That seems a more likely scenario. Either way, speculate below. [via JoBlo]
