Sony Pictures has decided to cut the character of Mary Jane Watson (Shailene Woodley) from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, just after announcing the release dates for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and 4 (June 10th, 2016 and May 4th, 2018 respectively). Woodley (of The Descendants) was set to star as Spidey’s other love interest MJ in the sequel. Talking recently with EW, she reveals you’re gonna have to wait a little while to see her performance.
“Of course I’m bummed,” confessed Woodley in an EW interview. “But I’m a firm believer in everything happening for a specific reason….based on the proposed plot, I completely understand holding off on introducing [Mary Jane] until the next film.”
But will it be Shailene playing Mary Jane or will we see someone else take the role? There are already many rumours surfacing that she will be replaced – due to her busy schedule. Could this also mean that the proposed plot where Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy gets killed could be true? If Marc Webb (hehe!) follows the comic book story line we might just say good-bye to Stacy too.
