The Wrap is reporting that, contrary to previous reports, the Mary Jane Watson character will not appear in Marc Webb’s Untitled Spider-Man Reboot.
Last month we reported that actress Emma Stone was playing Mary Jane Watson, then a few days later it was revealed that Emma Stone was actually playing Gwen Stacy. There was speculation that both Mary Jane Watson and Gwen Stacy would appear in the remake, although now it seems James Vanderbilt’s screenplay never included the Mary Jane Watson character at all. There was apparently talk of bringing Mary Jane into the project, although they ended up sticking with Gwen Stacy as the lead female character.
We reported yesterday that Martin Sheen will play Uncle Ben and Sally Field is in talks to portray Aunt May. However,Sally Field’s deal is still in the very early stages.
Untitled Spider-Man Reboot comes to theaters July 3rd, 2012
