Yesterday Columbia Pictures made the very wise decision to release an official image of the new Spider-Man costume, and today it seems clear that decision was made because the production has now taken to the streets of New York City in view of all sorts of other cameras. While we'll primarily stick to showing you the official studio-released images since most set photos do a movie no justice, we couldn't resist revealing these first images of the new Mary Jane Watson, played by up-and-comer Shailene Woodley.
Sporting a leather jacket, red hair and a very natural look, it's hard to tell what kind of Mary Jane Woodley will be playing. Early in the comics Mary Jane acted as sort of the girl-next-door type, and Woodley -- with her unassuming charm and comforting demeanor -- could definitely slide into that part with ease, acting as an opposite to Gwen Stacy's (Emma Stone) smart, polished, quick-witted personality.
Also in the comics, there was a time when Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) was juggling feelings for three women, with the other being Black Cat. Seeing as Felicity Jones' role still hasn't been identified, we're thinking she'll be playing that character, appealing to Peter in that he can relate to someone with a secret identity.
With production out in the wide open air of New York City, we expect to have a few of these questions answered soon enough. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters on May 4, 2014. Check out more set photos over at JustJared.
