There have been reports that Shailene Woodley will not be able to play Mary Jane Watson in any Amazing Spiderman movies because of her commitments to the Divergent movies. I decide to take it upon myself to pick some of what I consider top contenders.
Here are my picks:
The girl can handle a franchise. Although she was a supporting character in the Twilight series, her appearance in such a huge franchise shows she can handle the pressure. She was part of the very impressive CBGB file and was cast as a lead in the ABC pilot Americana in 2012. Greene also has a role in Zach Braff's comedy Wish I Was Here. Although she has not broken out completely yet people in the industry have shown their trust in her, so maybe we should as well.
A girl who can do Suburgatory and Shameless seems like a seriously good choice. Shameless has its comedic parts (it is entering the comedy award categories), but Levy's role showed her ability to take on serious roles. Personally from watching the show I think she would make a great Mary Jane. Her other credits include Evil Dead and a couple movies on their way this year.
Oh Alex how I miss you. As a big Nikita fan of course I think Lyndsy Fonseca is on my list. Yeah she can handle any action scenes the role calls for, but there is more to Fonseca than that. Her role on Nikita showed serious depth to her skills. Out of all the characters she grew the most, hitting rock bottom several times. The girl can take on this role no questions asked. All I am worried about is taking on a role of this magnitude.
Lydia Martin would make a great MJ. I think she looks the part and since Lydia took a more serious role on the show Roden has shown her acting chops. The girl has talent and definitely can make it on the big screen. Teen Wolf is doing very well now, so this is her chance to start branching out.
I was not a fan of this girl originally. Something about her character on That Awkward Moment irritated me. Then I saw Need for Speed. She was incredible opposite Aaron Paul. Her character was probably the most ridiculous, but she showed
As a Doctor Who fan I will trying to get Gillan cast in most things, but this role could actually be a great fit. She has show her attitude on Doctor Who and her physical ability on Marvel's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy. I think she would make a great Mary Jane Watson.
So here are my picks? Let me know what you think!
