Shailene Woodley may be ascending to her first big-screen blockbuster.

The Secret Life of the American Teenager star, who earned critical raves for her turn as George Clooney's daughter in The Descendants last year, is in talks to join The Amazing Spider-Man sequel as none other than Peter Parker love interest Mary Jane Watson, E! News has confirmed.

Sounds like a prime opportunity for Woodley, 20, especially considering the upcoming fifth season of Secret Life will be its last, as announced by ABC Family just today.

Sure, she'd probably have to dye her hair red—but that's a small price to pay for the chance to kiss Andrew Garfield, right?

Not to mention star in a major superhero franchise. Priorities!

A veteran TV actress of more than 10 years now, scoring roles on everything from The O.C. to Cold Case in addition to her starring role on Secret Life, The Descendants marked Woodley's feature film debut.

And Clooney knows potential when he sees it.

"I want to adopt Shailene," the Oscar winner joked earlier this year. "Because she's 20 and smart, and I figure she has a big career ahead and can support me. So, I'm looking to adopt very successful people."
