The Kidd here...
While you wonder whether or not Emma Stone's version of Gwen Stacy will come to meet the same fate as in the comics, it appears casting is underway to bring Peter Parker's other notable love interest into the mix for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. Shailene Woodley has received an offer to join the Spidey sequel as Mary Jane Watson, according to Variety.
Woodley put herself on the radar with her superb supporting performance in THE DESCENDANTS. And while she's currently shooting an adaptation of THE SPECTACULAR NOW, the only other project that looks to be occupying space in her calendar is the indie WHITE BIRD. That leaves her wide open to take the role last held by Kirsten Dunst in the Sam Raimi trilogy of Spidey films.
We're still in the dark as to what direction the next chapter in "the untold story" will take... although I'd suggest that in Marc Webb's return, he figures out what the hell they're doing with this Peter's parents story arc. We're moving towards the eventual reveal of Norman Osborn, hence the Green Goblin. It's just a matter of whether or not that's going to be sooner or later.
With what I've heard of Emma Stone's contract situation...
She was only signed for two total films, whereas Andrew Garfield was locked up for three, so take that for what it's worth when figuring out how long Gwen Stacy might last...
...it might be prudent to start introducing and establishing MJ right away.
