A casting call for “London Calling,” the secret identity for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, reveals that they’re looking for a stand-in for Mary Jane Watson actress Shailene Woodley, and that the gig will last from February to July.
The movie is largely being shot in London, where it will reportedly take place. Gwen Stacy, Peter Parker’s love interest from the first film, lived briefly in the city following her father’s death in the comic book source material.
Comic Book Movie found the entry at On Location Vacations, which culls official information from various studio sources and organizations with whom they do business. They’re rarely wrong, and this story isn’t remarkable enough to think someone would have made it up.
The full casting call is below. The as-yet-untitled sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man will be released May 2, 2014.
