Mary Jane Watson DROPPED From Spider-Man Reboot?!

We feel like every day, we're hearing something different!

There's been quite a bit of speculation surrounding the reboot of Spider-Man, specifically regarding whether or not Mary Jane Watson or Gwen Stacy will be the primary love interest for the web slinger in the new flick.

The biggest surprise came with the casting of Emma Stone, whom everyone assumed would take on KiKi's role before it was revealed that she would be Gwen!

However, sources are reporting now that the Mary Jane character has been completely dropped from the reboot - mainly because the writer, James Vanderbilt, and director Marc Webb couldn't figure out a way to successfully incorporate a love-triangle into the script, and eventually became weary of the idea after how poorly a similar plot line was received in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3!

The same source is also confirming The Lizard as the reboot's main villain!

Inneresting!

And we'd say that eliminating Mary Jane is probably a smart move! They've already covered all of that ground in the first films, so we think the more original this one is, the better!

What do U think?? Are U happy with the direction the new Spider-Man is taking??

    Real Spiderman fans know Gwen Stacy was Peter Parker's first love, and Mary Jane came by later.

    Gwen was her love interest until a tragic event in the comics, genius.

    Gwen was Peter's love interest in the comics until tragic events. It's not that shocking.

    This is honestly one of the best things they could do. Gwen Stacy's death is one of the most important events in Peter Parker's/Spider-Man's character history. Not to mention huge in comic book history in general. It never made sense to me that in the Sam Raimi movies he didn't start out with Gwen and went straight to MJ. Unfortunately I could also see them not killing her off because it might upset fans but I really believe it would help the movie in terms of a better understanding of Peter Parker to have him experience such a loss and feel directly responsible. Even more so than Uncle Ben's death.
