Yesterday it was announced by  ET Canada that Sarah Gadon had joined the cast of Marc Webb’s, The Amazing Spider-Man 2. They confirmed the news, Tweeting “Huge news for @sarahgadon – she just confirmed to us that she is joining The Amazing Spider-Man franchise”

Naturally Internet speculation went a bit mad for a few hours. With Shailene Woodley’s parts as Mary Jane Watson removed from Part 2, the plan was to re-shoot them in the recently announced The Amazing Spider-Man 3, because Webb wanted to concentrate more on Peter Parker’s character in the first sequel. Scheduling conflicts for Woodley has meant that she had to leave the franchise altogether, and the sudden announcement of Gadon had people thinking she had been cast as MJ.

Not so, and The Playlist have reported that Jeff Sneider Tweeted the following response to what people have been saying:

“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.”

This means that Gadon is another name added the the cast of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 whose part is unknown. Sneider did say that Gadon will only appear briefly, so just as a thought, maybe she will be character hinted at in Part 2, and will have a more prominent role in Part 3. Gadon is a fairly well known actress now after roles in films like Cosmopolis, A Dangerous Method and Antiviral, and I can’t imagine her just playing a small cameo role.

The sequel to last year’s critical and box office hit The Amazing Spider-Man, the film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Sarah Gadon, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Chris Cooper and Sally Field.


In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.

The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner, with a previous draft by James Vanderbilt, and based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are the producers.

The latest chapter in the Spider-Man story is set for release in 3D on May 2, 2014.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
