Spider-Man Might Have a New Mary Jane [UPDATED]

Entertainment Tonight Canada may have finally found the scoop to push them ahead of Access Winnipeg. The Northern division of ET--split off to ensure celebrity birthdays will never rest solely in the hands of a single government--has some big news from the world of Spider-Men, reporting that David Cronenberg's Dangerous Method and Cosmopolis star Sarah Gadon has "confirmed to us that she is joining The Amazing Spider-Man franchise." A role hasn't been named, but the internet has quickly jumped to the conclusion that will make Shailene Woodley feel the worst: that Gadon is taking over the role of Mary Jane following Woodley getting cut from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 earlier this week. Though, considering how many villains Marc Web has reportedly been shoehorning into his sequel, it's also just as likely Gadon will belatedly fill the role of Molten Man (as a young woman). Probably one of those things, though.

[Update: She is apparently not Mary Jane. So, Molten Man, then.]
