Rumor: Has Mary Jane Already Been Recast?


SarahG“Crazy Town Banana Pants!”

We heavily emphasize the ‘just a rumor’ thing. Don noticed this earlier, and so far it’s an unconfirmed rumor. Movieweb.com cites a “source close to the production” (again, as do most rumors!) that Canadian actress Sarah Gadon has been cast as Mary Jane for ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3.’ From the site:

Sarah Gadon is a Canadian actress who studied at the University of Toronto. Also a dancer, she made her TV debut in 1998 with a role on La Femme Nikita. She made her feature film debut with the little seen teen comedy Fast Food High in 2003. She most recently appeared in last year’s thriller Antiviral, and starred in Cosmopolis opposite Robert Pattinson. She next appears in Dracula with Luke Evans and Dominic Cooper, which mixes the fact of Vlad the Impaler with the fiction of the blood-sucking Count.

The 26-year-old actress was reportedly cast before the news of Mary Jane’s departure from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was revealed earlier this week, and since the sequel to Divergent has yet to be announced, it looks like the role was re-cast due to some of the concerns surrounding the character, as rumored.

The article does go on at length to discuss Shailene Woodley and possible scheduling conflicts that could have arisen over the sequel to her ‘Divergent,’ which is aimed at being a franchise. But for now, take this with a grain of salt. Sometimes rumors like these get out there early and turn out to just be wishful thinking. For more pictures of the very pretty Ms. Gadon, click here!

We’ll keep Spidey fans updated if this is later confirmed or debunked.  Because it’s Spider-Man Crawl Space and it’s… what we do.

UPDATE:

On June 21st Sarah Gadon confirmed on her Twitter account that while she has signed onto the Spider-Man franchise with a small role she is not playing Mary Jane. This was updated by yours truly on the Crawl Space’s Facebook page but not on the main page due to the site’s outage during the move to the new internet host.

–George!

    Yep. We posted that to the Crawl Space FB page when the site was down but I forgot about it when the site came back up. Thanks for that!

    Ik this is a spiderman site and important a spiderman site/marvel fan but man of steel kicked ass compared to any marvel movie including the overrated avengers and yes the avengers had plenty of flaws as well and as far as this new actress she's hot but shailene wasn't a bad looking girl

    I'm happy to see that the character is involved in the franchise once more, but disappointed at all the comments about the original actress over her appearance. Shame on you guys- a blossoming MJ was what was required and the original actress certainly fit the bill. I've seen her in much more attractive shots. And besides, it should all come down to the acting- Kirsten was attractive, but her acting was seriously off the mark.

    Quick FYI! I can't post updates to the main page while the issues with the site and the current transfer to the new host. But Sara Gadon has confirmed via Twitter that she is not playing Mary Jane. She has signed on to the franchise in another role which has not been announced. Until we can post to the main page again remember to check in with the Crawl Space's FB page! :) https://www.facebook.com/SpiderManCrawlspace?fref=ts

    Lawrence is an Academy award winning actress who is already tied up in another franchise. Actually - two franchises, including one where she is currently playing another Marvel character. They're not getting Jennifer Lawrence. And Shailene Woodley does not look like a man.

    Wait...these movies are supposed be about Peter in his teenager. The one actress that actual looks like a teenager is drop for an actress that could play Peter's sexy aunt? Sigh...I feel another Man of Steel coming and that isn't a good thing for me.

    YES YES YES! I'm sorry but that last actress for MJ did NOT look like the character she was suppose to portray. I hope this recast rumour is true
