Marc Webb is currently deep in pre-production for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 but the busy director took time to host a Q&A session with fans via Target's Twitter page (as part of a promo event for the DVD release of the first movie) and addressed some major talking points surrounding the sequel. Click on the tweets to link over to Twitter.
First off, Webb confirms Shailene Woodley, who had been previously in talks for the role, will play Mary Jane Watson in the sequel.
Webb also addressed costume tweaks we might see in the sequel.
In total, Webb answered twelve questions during the chat before dashing off to a meeting with his writers.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is slated to swing (pun intended) into theaters on May 2, 2014.
Are you excited to hear that Woodley has been confirmed as Watson? What do you think of the brief notes on Spidey's costume changes?

It might just be the picture, but I can't help but feel that she looks almost nothing like mary jane....hopefully her performance makes up for it.
I think GWEN Emma Stone's character better keep a watch-out for her boyfriend/Garfield PETER PARKER/SPIDERMAN. Smile. I think the young lady/Shailene Woodley fits the character/MARY JANE Watson well.
Zero need to change the costume unless it's like Ironman style where it is beefed up or something new. But great news for her, I loved her in Descendants. I can't believe I have to wait until 2014 though!
Sorry what I meant to say is that Mark had do some improvement on the costume because it is really horrible!
Mark out to do something about the new costume. Its really horrible!
Good...I was pretty disappointed when she WASN'T cast as Lindy in "Beastly" (Why change one of the most important characters?!) and this is also a good role for her.
Sounds promising probably will be better than the 2nd one
i meant 1st one
I really liked her in "The Descendants" and I think she will do a good job with the role.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
