Touche.

I think she's a step down from the other girl they had cast to play MJ though.

Latest update:

Sarah Gadon IS in Amazing Spider-Man 2 briefly. She is NOT playing Mary Jane Watson, who will NOT appear until Part THREE.
(Yes, it's the same link from post #142, but apparently it's just been updated.)

Round and round she goes, where she stops, nobody knows...

Remember that Marion Cotillard lied and said she wasn't playing Talia in TDKR in her interviews.

SONY might have told her to deny it because of some of the negative reactions. We won't know for certain until the movie is released.

Who, for all we know, might still. This Divergent could always flop, after all.

But that's because her character's identity was a secret within the film itself. It's not an analogous situation.

That's really kind of paranoid. They'd have to be incredibly inept at PR to replace Woodley with Gadon, release a false story about MJ being cut out altogether, then reveal the next day that Gadon was playing MJ, then try to walk that back by claiming she was playing someone else. That seems like just making things worse for themselves for no reason. It's far, far more likely that, because the news about Gadon's participation in the film came out around the same time as the unrelated news about Woodley's part being cut, someone in the perpetual game of telephone that is the Internet misinterpreted the two news items as being connected, or thought she looked right for the part and jumped to a conclusion.

Gadon herself has now tweeted to confirm that she's playing a different character in the film:
To all those a twitter, I will not be playing MJ in Spider-Man. I have a role in the film, but it is not that one
(same link as above, just updated yet again)

Not sure why she can't find the time for both like what Jennifer Lawrence is doing with X-men and The Hunger Games.
Lionsgate and Fox coordinated shooting schedules, with Fox pushing the shoot for DOFP back a bit, to make sure Jennifer Lawrence could do both. Sony is looking to crank out Spider-Man films at a very fast pace, leaving little wiggle room for coordination with another franchise.
According to what I've heard, Fox didn't push the shooting schedule to accommodate Jennifer and Lionsgate at all. They locked her for a shoot starting in January 2013, because she signed the contract for X-Men before she signed for The Hunger Games, which means her X-Men obligations legally take precedence.

That's why Lionsgate had a very tight schedule, which was the reason why Gary Ross decided to walk away, believing he wouldn't have enough time for pre-production. He's a director who doesn't delegate much and likes to have control over every aspect of the filmmaking. Simon Beaufoy walked away with him, and Lionsgate had to find a new director and a screenwriter. They were initially going to shoot Catching Fire from September to January. But then in November X-Men: DOFP got pushed back because of the change of director and Jennifer was free again until May, which gave Lionsgate more breathing room and more time for filming - so after Jennifer's break for the awards season, she and the rest of cast and crew went back to continue filming and do some reshoots in Hawaii.

Re: "Amazing Spider-man 2" discussion

^^^
It was reported that Fox initially wanted to start production on Days of Future Past in fall 2012, but pushed it back to January 2013 to accomodate Lawrence's schedule on Catching Fire. There's this from IFC, for example:

Fans are going to have to wait half a year longer to see the planned "X-Men: First Class" sequel, and it’s all the fault of those darn "Hunger Games."

At least, that’s the case according to The Hollywood Reporter. The outlet is reporting that 20th Century Fox has changed their planned shooting start date for the “X-Men” sequel to accommodate Jennifer Lawrence's filming schedule on “The Hunger Games” sequel, "Catching Fire."

If Fox had wanted to, they could have made Lawrence film the untitled “X-Men” sequel first. She signed a sequel clause in her contract before she came on board “The Hunger Games,” so technically Fox had first dibs. The plan originally was to have the follow-up to “X-Men: First Class” start lensing in the fall, but now Lionsgate is planning for “Catching Fire” to go in front of the camera in August or September. Instead of having a fuss about it, Fox has opted to start shooting “X-Men” in January 2013.

First official look at Electro, facing off Spidey in an Entertainment Weekly cover. I think the make-up and visuals look great and will probably look even better in motion.

Immediately under is a pic of Peter and Harry.

Andrew Garfield on Spider-Man's sexuality: 'Why can't he be gay?'

Andrew Garfield has loved Spider-Man since he was a little kid. He can speak eloquently and at length about how open the Spider-verse is for interpretation. Recently, he says, he had a philosophical discussion with producer Matt Tolmach about Mary Jane or “MJ” to fans. “I was kind of joking, but kind of not joking about MJ,” he tells EW. “And I was like, ‘What if MJ is a dude?’ Why can’t we discover that Peter is exploring his sexuality? It’s hardly even groundbreaking!…So why can’t he be gay? Why can’t he be into boys?”
SONY won't be pleased when they hear this!

New rumor: This is why they dropped Shailene Woodley!

(No. Seriously. Please don't let that rumor start. I hate rumors.)

I love that look for Electro. It's actually pretty similar to the Ultimate version.

Maybe that's what Marc meant by divering from canon




-Aside from Webb saying it honors cannon and diverges from it in parts, he also says there are many beautiful, earth-shattering and thrilling moments in the movie that he just wants the audience to experience for themselves and he's confident in what they have




More from the EW issue

-Andrew said the script brought tears to his eyes because it has the perfect balance of Peter's heart and Spidey's jokes and trickster quality and he feels like if the flick fails it will truly be all on him

-Marc Webb is happy to be done with the origin story and is excited to bring something to the audience they've truly never seen before.

-Avi says they changed the costume because honestly, they listened to the fans. The iPad version of the magazine explains all of the changes and says that Peter can change what music he's listening to in costume through his web shooters

-They decided to take MJ out because there was just too much story and they wanted to give it room to breathe

-They do talk about one scene where Peter and Gwen are having a bit of an argument because he has to go do his hero thing and she wants to come with him so after having a witty back and forth, he finally just webs her to a car and goes to handle his business



Easily the best live action costume of Spidey yet.

I'm a bit conflicted on this issue. On one hand the decision turned out perfectly. On the other i'm dissapointed that fans had the final word.
The Spider-man movies in the past have reeked of studio and fan interference since the first movie
