Well, this is certainly puzzling news. Shailene Woodley, the actress who’s career is set to really take off with Divergent and The Spectacular Now on the way, has reportedly been cut from The Amazing Spider-Man 2. She had already completed her work on the film as Mary Jane Watson, one of Peter Parker’s most well known love interests, but given the proposed plot the director decided to remove MJ from this movie.
Given that the studio has already announced The Amazing Spider-Man 3 AND 4, this move shouldn’t really alarm any people worried if MJ would make an appearance at all in the series. This does however bring up some interesting things with regard to Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy, especially if they are considering finite timelines for certain characters. We’ll just have to see what’s in store when The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters on April 17, 2014.
