Spoiler: Details on the Mary Jane scenes cut from The Amazing Spider-man 2

04.30.2014

We have known for quite a while that Shailene Woodley's role as Mary Jane Watson had been cut by director Marc Webb from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. Without revealing any plot elements at the time, Webb explained that he wanted to keep the Gwen Stacy/Peter Parker dynamic as the central focus of the superhero sequel. In recent months, we have all discussed the overload of villains and characters added to the movie and the question became whether cutting Woodley was due to bad casting or truly a changed direction for the film.

With the movie finally hitting audiences this weekend, Webb has shared some details as to what the scenes shot with Woodley entailed and how they fit into the overall film. There are obviously spoilers in these interview excerpts, so scroll past the Emma Stone/Shailene Woodley set photo at your own risk.

Speaking with Movies.com, Webb shared that Mary Jane was always going to appear in just a single scene and he provides a breakdown of it.

“There was one little scene at the beginning where she is next door and it took place right around the montage where he comes back and there was another little moment between Gwen and MJ. But it just tipped over. The relationship between them [Peter and Gwen] is so sacred and so powerful, that it just didn’t feel right. And it sucks because Shailene is such a f**king great actress and so cool and magical but it was just about having this obligation to this romance that I thought was sacred. It was just one of those things.”

Webb goes on to praise Woodley's performance but remains unsure if her commitment to the DIVERGENT sequels will prevent her from appearing in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3 or beyond. From those who have seen THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, the fate of Gwen and Peter's relationship is pretty solid and the next question is whether a relationship with Mary Jane or the already introduced Felicia Hardy (aka Black Cat) in the sequel will be next up.

“Oh absolutely. The question, of course, is can Peter ever love again? And that will be something that we have to address.”

The casting of Woodley garnered a lot of backlash from fans who didn't think she was pretty enough to play MJ or follow the gorgeous Emma Stone as the next love for Spider-man. To those folks I say take a look at the image below and tell me you don't think Shailene Woodley is hot enough to play Mary Jane.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 opens this Friday, May 2nd.

Typical fanboy mindset...

...the actress who plays MJ has to be a supermodel in order to meet the expectations of the ridiculous comics, simply because a horny comic writer decided one day that Mary Jane needed to be the hottest woman on earth in order to make it up to Peter Parker for losing his love and so the juvenile teens who read those comics have something to jerk off to and so they'll keep buying afore-mentioned comics. So juvenile. What the hell do looks have to do with why MJ? I'm pretty sure she's important

So juvenile. What the hell do looks have to do with why MJ? I'm pretty sure she's important to Peter for a few more reasons than just her looks. The fanboys that got into an uproar over Woodley are not people I'd EVER want to meet in real life. Disgusting.

Nope, a single photo does not make her hot enough. But she is waaaaaay better than Dunst.

I'm a fan of hers despite thinking that the Divergent movie looked like absolute crap. I hope she gets the role once more and owns it.

I didn’t know Shailene Woodley before the MJ news...and the behind the scene photos this site kept putting up of her in character didn't do anything for me - there was one particular one that simply screamed Plain Jane. I then saw Divergent last week...forgetting all about Woodley’s MJ role and it kept bugging me...where had I seen her before. Came home and Googled it...and well...total recall. I didn't think she looked anything other than "cute" in Divergent...and that was only some of the

That said, yes, she looks very hot in the photo above but then she does have a ton of makeup on.

Peter Parker

would not look at what's on the outside to choose his girlfriends, right? Why would MJ have to be "hotter" than Gwen? Grow up, people.

I think she'll make a good Mary Jane. Hopefully she'll have the time to do both Amazing Spider Man and Divergent.

Whoever thinks she is not hot enough to play MJ is an idiot, plain and simple. Hopefully she'll be able to play the role in Spiderman 3.

SPOILER ALERT



SPOILER ALERT....stay away.











The scene at the end of AS 2 when Parker stands at the grave after suffering his loss is very well done. One would think he'd never love again...right?

I don't see what my girlfriend has to do with this. That's awesome you're so desperate that you go there though. Sorry to offend anyone who's in love with Woodley but thats just my humble opinion. And for what it's worth (and I'm sure I'll get trashed for this) I think Dunst has more sex appeal than Woodley as well.
