AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 (2014): Sarah Gadon cast, Shailene Woodley Exits

Sarah Gadon

Sarah Gadon cast in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The casting of Sarah Gadon in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) raises a question while the exiting of Shailene Woodley raises another. With Shailene Woodley is no longer appearing in The Amazing Spiderman 2 and supposedly not in The Amazing Spiderman 3 as well, Sarah Gadon has been cast in the film in a as yet unspecified role.

The Twitter announcement of Sarah Gadon casting in The Amazing Spider-Man film series:

Huge news for @sarahgadon – she just confirmed to us that she is joining The Amazing Spider-Man franchise

— ET Canada (@ETCanada) June 21, 2013

On the confirmation that Sarah Gadon is playing Mary Jane:

Jeff Sneider had already shot down stories of Gadon playing Mary Jane by this point, and as he pointed out after the actress was confirmed for the franchise, Gadon could well have signed on for an entirely different role. For her part, Gadon has yet to comment publicly on the story.

I hope Shailene Woodley is still playing Mary Jane but who knows what is currently going on behind the scenes of The Amazing Spider-Man 2-4.

On Sarah Gadon:

Her first feature film was Fast Food High (2003) where she portrayed Zoe. She portrayed Margaret in the dark comedy Siblings, Priscilla in Charlie Bartlett (2007) and Laura in Leslie, My Name is Evil (2009). Her short film work includes Haley in Burgeon and Fade (2007), Julia in Grange Avenue (2008) and Gabrielle in Spoliation (2008). Burgeon and Fade won the Special Jury Award at the WorldFest Houston Festival for original dramatic short film.

She stars in the short indie film, The Origin of Teddy Bears as Madison.

She was also cast in the David Cronenberg film A Dangerous Method where she plays Emma Jung, Carl Jung’s wife. She has appeared twice as a guest star on Murdoch Mysteries as Dr. Ogden’s sister, Ruby.

She starred in Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis, alongside Robert Pattinson, as his on-screen wife of 22 days, Elise Shifirin. She is cast in the TV adaptation of Ken Follett’s global bestseller World Without End as an eight-hour event series.

She featured in Brandon Cronenberg’s debut feature, Antiviral as Hannah Geist, a mega-star in a sci-fi world where fans pay to be infected with the diseases of the rich and famous.

Her next venture is a Canadian short film, Yellow Fish alongside J. Adam Brown.

On May 23, 2012 in Cannes, Birks presented the Birks Canadian Diamond award to Gadon and Emily Hampshire during Telefilm Canada’s inaugural Tribute To Canadian Talent press event and reception.

Her forthcoming projects include Denis Villeneuve’s An Enemy, based on the José Saramago book, The Double.
