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.
