Shailene Woodley is in full “Amazing Spider-Man 2” mode. Just a day after the first look at the movie’s Spider-Man suit was revealed, set photos have surfaced that show Woodley sporting her red Mary Jane Watson hair.
This is a recent change for Woodley, who as recently as early February was seen as a brunette. But just as her costar Emma Stone went back to her natural blonde for the part of Gwen Stacey, Woodley has switched up her look for the sake of Sony Pictures’ Marvel comic books movie.
When MTV News caught up with Woodley at the Sundance Film Festival, she admitted that she’s been a lifelong fan of the “Spider-Man” comics. No wonder she had no problem changing up her hair for the part of MJ!
“Spider-Man’s always been my favorite superhero since I was a little girl,” she said. “I always thought there was something special about flying. When I watched the previous ‘Spider-Man’ with Andrew Garfield, he made me feel invincible. I also cried when Uncle Ben died. I knew it was coming, and I still cried! I think Marc Webb is amazing. I’m so stoked to work with Andrew and Emma. They’re the best of the best.”
“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” features the return of Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Emma Stone as his love interest Gwen Stacy. Joining them are Dane DeHaan as Parker’s friend Harry Osborn, Paul Giamatti as Rhino and Jamie Foxx as the movie’s villain, Electro. The movie is slated to hit theaters May 2, 2014.
