Peter + Mary Jane finally meet in new Amazing Spidey 2 set video

Anyone thinking the introduction of Mary Jane might just be a bit of window dressing in Marc Webb’s Amazing Spider-Man 2, think again.

Since Webb’s version of the famous web slinger has focused on Peter Parker’s (Andrew Garfield) relationship with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) up to this point, many fans thought the introduction of Mary Jane Watson (Shailene Woodley) in the sequel might just be a setup for part three, with Woodley popping up with a line or two in the background.

But a new set video and some set pics show Woodley and Garfield chatting it up in a New York alley, while Peter Parker seems to be tinkering with a broken-down car. The new Mary Jane is also looking pretty cool, riding by on a motorcycle.

The casting of Woodley and what we've seen of the production could mean Webb is taking an Ultimate approach to the character of Mary Jane, imagining her as less of a super-sexy, popular aspiring actress a la Sam Raimi's trilogy. Instead, she could take on the girl-next-door aspiring journalist persona shown in the Ultimate comic line.

For now, all we can do is guess. Give the video and pics a look and let us know what you think:
