In a rather strange turn of developments, Marc Webb cut Shailene Woodley from Amazing Spider-Man 2, with it said the footage would be pushed on to the third movie.

However, that kinda seems highly unlikely given scenes were filmed with Emma Stone and the "Amazing Spider-Man 3" is a couple years off.

Then, earlier today, a rumor surfaced that 26-year-old Canadian actress Sarah Gadon is playing the new Mary Jane.

Now, Sarah Gadon's involvement in the Amazing Spider-Man movies is confirmed as Entertainment Tonight Canada let loose the following tweet via Twitter.

"Huge news for Sarah Gadon - she just confirmed to us that she is joining The Amazing Spider-Man franchise," ET Canada posted along with the following image.

It's still unknown if Sarah Gadon will be playing Mary Jane, but the actress' age is closer to that of 29-year-old Andrew Garfield, with Shailene Woodley being 21 years young.

It's also been said that Woodley will be too busy with other films and sequels to her latest, with Divergent, for Spider-Man.


Sarah Gadon is originally from Toronto, Canada and known for the World Without End TV mini-series, Cosmopolis, voiced Beth and Izzy on Total Drama Island, and will be starring in the new Dracula movie with Luke Evans.

Below you can find some more pics of Sarah Gadon.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings into theaters May 2nd, 2014 directed by Marc Webb starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Colm Feore, and Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn.

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.
