Possible spoilers below for the Amazing Spider-Man sequel.

It was reported that Shailene Woodley was in talks to play Mary Jane in the "Amazing Spider-Man 2" - she seems to have got the part - we now have some information on her role in the movie.

With the announcement that Woodley is also closing a deal for another movie, Divergent, it comes out that her Mary Jane role will just play a small part in the "Amazing Spider-Man 2."

Why is that?

Because apparently Woodley has signed on for two Spider-Man movies, with her role in the third Spidey film to be expanded upon as the "Death of Gwen Stacy" storyline from the comic books will be featured (via THR).

Now really, the death of Gwen isn't that surprising - at least to comic fans - but what's interesting is that in the comic books the Green Goblin killed Gwen Stacy.

Will Sony go the same route? Or provide a new villain?

It's speculated that the post-credit scene to the Amazing Spider-Man featured Elektro or even Morbius the Living Vampire, will one of them be responsible for Gwen's death?

Or will the third Amazing Spider-Man film feature an all-new Norman Osborn?

The "Amazing Spider-Man 2" swings into theaters May 2nd, 2014 directed by Marc Webb starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Shailene Woodley.
