Shailene Woodley's Mary Jane Cut Out of 'Amazing Spider-Man 2'

Shailene Woodley‘s role as Mary Jane Watson in the highly anticipated sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has been dropped to the cutting room floor, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The 21-year-old actress spent a week filming scenes in New York City for the upcoming superhero flick, but now her role won’t be introduced until the series’ third film.

“Of course I’m bummed. But I am a firm believer in everything happening for a specific reason… Based on the proposed plot, I completely understand the need for holding off on introducing [Mary Jane] until the next film,” Shailene told the mag.

“I made a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship,” director Marc Webb added (via THR). “Shailene is an incredibly talented actress and while we only shot a few scenes with Mary Jane, we all love working with her.”

It is being speculated that the role of Mary Jane will be recast for the third film.

ARE YOU BUMMED that Shailene Woodley won’t be in The Amazing Spider-Man 2?

    GREAT NOW that Snake looking girl(Emma Stone) can be happy !

  • Duh.

    Not really. They need to keep the story between Peter and Gwen alive as those who read the comics know what’s going to happen to her.

  • Gucci

    No. More Gwen a Peter for a while :)

  • Tragic

    I hope they recast

  • Madison

    I hope that Shailene will come back to play MJ in the next movie.

  • omg

  • jaelyn

    haters gonna hate.

    Good. They need to recast that role anyway. Mary Jane was a smokin’ hot, bodacious, redheaded model-actress. Surely, there is a capable actress that can fit that role. No disrespect to Kirsten and Shailene, but come on.
    I vote Shay Mitchell. Dye her hair red, and she could totally make Peter get over Gwen–after she dies.

    @saira: Or Amanda Seyfried ? she’d be awsome but i don’t think they’ll recast LOL

  • Maris

    I know it’s horrible to say this but I’m really happy she’s not gonna be in it, and I agree, they should recast MJ or I might just drop it altogether once Emma is out

  • Melissa

    They need to recast MJ or I don’t think I’ll want to see any of the movies past the 2nd.

  • honeychile

    The should cast Amanda Bynes as Mary Jane because all the other girls on earth are UGLY!

  • Sophia

    I think they realized that the movie wasn’t going anywhere with Shailene’s character and that there’s no more time to re-film with someone else, so the only option is cut her part. Plus, that also that gives them more material for the next movies. And it so obvious that they’re re-casting. When a director is happy with his actors there’s no reason to cut their part, the natural thing would be fighting for the characters.

  • Nikki

    Hey, at least she’s in the next film! If having Mary-Jane enter into the second film didn’t make sense, then they needed to cut it.

  • Hamlet

    Actors have had their scenes cut all the time, #13. This is nothing new.

  • Duh.

    @saira: Shay Mitchell? Seriously? SHE DOESN’T”T HAVE THE LOOK FOR MARY JANE. Also, she’s not being recasted. Her scenes will be in the third installment not the second.

    way to go on playing the Garfield-Stone relationship card.
