Spider-Man Reboot Update: No Mary Jane Watson, Hello Gwen Stacy!

Rumors are abound in several movie news sites that Peter Parker's main squeeze and once future wife Mary Jane Watson may not be in Marc Webb's Spider-Man reboot. Instead, website The Wrap reports that the webslinger's other love interest, Gwen Stacy, will be the only female lead focused on in the new movie. This is not new news, considering that there already was a rumor before that Ms. Watson won't be appearing, and actress Emma Stone was cast as Ms. Stacy, thereby confirming MJ's no show in the new flick and no romantic tensions for Peter to worry about.

Personally, I think it's great that Gwen will be the focus of Peter's affections this time, since the character was so underused in Spider-Man 3 and wasn't given the fair treatment the character deserves. She's just as important a love interest as Mary Jane was to Peter, and I think it will fit right well, especially with the reboot being set back in High School and reintroducing Parker (played by Andrew Garfield) back in his developmental years. It's still all rumors at this point, but for more on the story, check out the source article at Screen Rant!

The Spider-Man reboot will debut with a new web of intrigue on July 3, 2012!
