Elektro Rumored For Amazing Spider-Man 2; Mary Jane and Harry Osborn To Appear



Shailene Woodley (The Descendants, The Secret Life of the American Teenager) is said to be in talks to play Mary Jane Watson in the "Amazing Spider-Man 2." 

In addition, Sony is also looking for an actor to play Harry Osborn and it is rumored that Elektro will be a villain as well.

The post-credit scene did reveal some sort of lightning with a mysterious figure; however, that really could have been anyone.

We actually think Morbius The Living Vampire will play a role in the "Amazing Spider-Man 2," as Morbius is getting a big push in the Marvel comic books, which have been mirroring the movies more so than ever as of late.

The news comes from Variety who states that Mary Jane will be a love interest of Peter Parker, and we also know that Emma Stone is in talks to reprise as Gwen Stacey, so perhaps some sort of love triangle could be involved. The other option is if they follow the comic book route of Gwen's demise.

Variety also states Elektro is just being thought about by Sony as production doesn't actually start until early next year.

The Amazing Spider-Man sequel swings into theaters on May 2, 2014 with Marc Webb as the director and starring Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, Spider-Man.
