The Spider-Man reboot movie, The Amazing Spider-Man, is currently filming and yet there has been a casting call for this movie. While there are no specifics as to who this female character is, the job description suggests it might be Mary Jane.


No Caption Provided

"SuperHeroHype has learned that a casting call has gone out for that very part under the film's  secret title, "Fiona's Tale." The exact description calls for an, "actress to portray beautiful red-headed teenage girl for featured background...(18+ only)". Interested candidates are encouraged to apply at FTextras@gmail.com ."

 
 "Fiona's Tale"?
Two things come to mind, three if we count the fact that I am wondering how they got "Fiona's Tale" out of "The Amazing Spider-Man". It seems like this is a casting call for Mary Jane but why suddenly decide to add a second love interest for a movie that is already underway? Why does the casting call say "for featured background" if MJ is pretty much a center-stage-type of character?

SuperHeroHype suggest that this could be a cast to tease the idea of having MJ in future Spider-Man movies, then again it was recently reported that a sequel to the Amazing Spider-Man is already in the works, there is a possibility that this casting call is for "Fiona's Tale 2". Another thing that pops to mind is MJ's first appearance. For a long time, in the comics, Mary Jane was teased to the readers. She was hidden among panels only to reveal the red-headed beauty in the famous "Face it tiger. You just hit the jackpot" scene. Could the movie's creators be thinking of doing the same thing for this first movie?

What do you think? Let the speculation begin!

Seems logical. There's no way Gwen Stacy survives this first film, in my opinion.

Interesting to say the least.

Though I prefer Gwen, with the monumental disappointment that was Emma Stone's casting, I'm very glad MJ is in this film.

@rorie: I thought Emma Stone signed a 3-movie contract...

I think it makes sense. Gwen's gotta die and they have to fill in the backstory for MJ, so why not do it in one film?

It would be awsome if MJ made a cameo at the end of the film. The best would be if she came over to Peters house and cracked the famous line "face it tiger, you just hit the jackpot". Would be a bit corny but i would definitely have a nerdgasm  :D

Hope this turns out to be true.

I can imagine Emma Stone playing both MJ and Gwen, her dyed red hair for MJ, and her natural blond hair for Gwen.
