List Rules Vote up and rerank your favorite casting choices for Mary-Jane Watson!

Mary Jane Watson Parker, the ultimate girl next door, the redheaded supermodel dream girl. She's funny, spunky, and is always ready to party. She also has a heart of gold and has more patience and tolerance for Spidey's madness than anyone else. Needless to say... she's hard to cast.

With Shailene Woodley being cast and then cut from Amazing Spider-Man 2, for pacing reasons, her involvement in the third seems unlikely (but with Fault in our Stars and Divergent, we're not too worried about her). So who do we cast as this dream woman?

It takes more than just being a pretty ginger to fill these designer shoes (can you imagine Lindsey Lohan as MJ?). We need a mix of talent, beauty, intelligence, charm, and heart to really hit the jackpot.

We think these actresses have what it takes to find that fine line between party mode and heart, these are the best actresses to play Mary Jane Watson!

Vibrant, fiesty, and with supermodel good looks, Amber Heard is certainly the head-turner that Mary Jane would have to be.

A gorgeous, natural redhead with a penchant for geekdom (Doctor Who, Guardians of the Galaxy) Karen would make an amazing MJ.

She has a very comic book character look about her, she's a talented actress, and she has a great fan following. A perfect addition to the Marc Webb Spider-Verse.

Emma Stone


Emma Stone is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list Casting Call for Mary Jane Watson

Stone could appear in a world where Norman Osborn was introduced for five minutes and then appears as just a head in a "Futurama"-esque stasis head-tank. Why not let her go back red and keep the Garfield/Stone charm going.
