As reported earlier, the character of Mary Jane Watson (Shailene Woodley) has been cut out of The Amazing Spider – Man 2. The character has been confirmed for the third installment in the franchise. Deadline caught up with director Marc Webb who issued this statement:
“I made a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship. Shailene is an incredibly talented actress and while we only shot a few scenes with Mary Jane, we all love working with her.”

O.K. Woodley’s scenes have been shot and even though a couple of them involved Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) some could be used for the next film, right?

According to The Hollywood Reporter: It is likely that Woodley will not return and that the part will be recast.

The Wrap adds: “Woodley will likely be busy with the sequels to her upcoming sci-fi movie “Divergent” and may not be available, so the role may have to be recast.”
