Actress Shailene Woodley, best known for her work on ABC Family’s Secret Life of the American Teenager and her breakout role in The Descendants, is in talks to join the cast of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Woodley would join the cast as Mary Jane Watson. She’s been offered the role that was played in the Sam Raimi trilogy by Kirsten Dundst.
Columbia just closed deals with Marc Webb to return to the director’s chair after this summer’s web-head reboot grossed $752 million worldwide. The studio also closed deals with Garfield to reprise the title role and Emma Stone to return as Gwen Stacy.
The stage is now set for an angst-filled love triangle.
