UPDATED: Shailene Woodley's Mary Jane-Watson character won't appear in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Jun. 19, 2013by: Paul Shirey

UPDATE: Well, apparently, it looks like Shailene Woodley is out of the Spider-Man business altogether, as it seems the decision was made by director Marc Webb to keep the focus on Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy's releationship. According to THR, the actress is expected to be recast when they begin filming THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3. I'm sure this will be a blessing to many fans.

"I made a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship," said Webb. "Shailene is an incredibly talented actress, and while we only shot a few scenes with Mary Jane, we all love working with her.”

Original Story:

Wow. Didn't see this one coming. Although, with the continued stack-up of characters filling the screentime of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, it's little wonder that something would have to give. However, I never would've thought that Mary Jane would be the one to take the bullet first. After Sony's announcement that they'd be steamrolling through two more Spidey films on the heels of the sequel, it looks like "big picture" ideas have come into play and seemingly nudged Shailene Woodley's Mary-Jane Watson out of the picture and into the next one. This comes on the heels of Felicity Jones basically admitting to playing the Black Cat in the film, who is another love interest of Peter Parker's in the comics.

The news comes from Entertainment Weekly's latest issue with a cover story on DIVERGENT, the YA adaptation that Woodley is starring in. When asked about her feelings on being pushed into the next film, the actress was ever the professional, saying:

"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."

I think this is probably a smart move. With so many characters filling up the film, it's best to save one of the more integral ones for part 3, especially if SPOILER happens. Mary Jane is such a major part of Spider-Man's life and it would be a shame to have her just shoehorned in with the rest of the massive cast. I know it sounds crazy, but I'm loving the ambition of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN reboot. I didn't care much for the first film, but it seems like they're really going for it, which could be truly great or an epic fail.

 THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, directed by Marc Webb and starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, Chris Cooper, Colm Feore, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Felicity Jones, B.J. Novak, and Shailene Woodley starts spinning its massive web on May 2, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: What do you think? Is this the right move in the grand scheme of things?

Actually, I feel bad they're recasting. I wasn't behind her in the role until I saw the Descendants. She was awesome in that. She might not have been drop dead gorgeous as we nerds have envisioned in our minds, but she was definitely pretty and a believable partner for a dorky Peter Parker.

Good, never felt MJ should show up until after Gwen's ultimate fate anyway. Having his rebound girl already lined up would just cheapen it.

I wonder if someone the studio may have wanted in the part more than Woodley became available for 3+4, and they shipped her out with someone else already essentially cast in the role? It will be interesting to see who eventually takes the part and if they had either auditioned for or were offered the part before Woodley but didn't or couldn't take it at the time.

Not buying it.

If she was so great and they loved working with her so much then why are they going to recast the part when the next sequel is already scheduled for just a couple of years from now? Keeping her in the part would only save time.

Something doesn't add up. You don't go back to the drawing board on such an important decision when you will already be pressed for time with the tight scheduling of AMS 3 and 4. Either she sucked in the part or they didn't like her personally. Nothing else makes

Shailene Woodley being cut from TASM 2 (as well as being recast in the future films) basically just confirms to me that the filmmakers/studio really have no idea what they are doing and this is going to be another hacked-up mess like the 1st one was.

Is there a reason this photo keeps being attached to any story of her as MJ? I realise it's a set pic of her...during this movie's shooting but it like you want us to comment on just how plain she looks. Honestly, not seen her in anything else and if it is this site's intention of wanting us to not be in favour of her as MJ (regardless of her acting ability) - you've got my support.

I'm all for taking the character out of this film.

Gwen Stacy is an important part of Spider-man's past, not to mention her portrayal by Stone was one of the major highlights of the first film. Killing her off, or having her split her screentime with Woodley so early would've really put a damper on the film. I could see Watson being included in the 3rd film, but no need to rush it, since we've already witnessed a good deal of her arc with Raimi's films. The way I could see it going, Stacy dies, either at the end of this film, or the

The way I could see it going, Stacy dies, either at the end of this film, or the beginning of the 3rd, and Parker hunts down Green Goblin for revenge. When the Osbourne dies, then Harry could take up his mantle. The only loss here is Woodley. She is a surprisingly talented actress, and probably would've done a solid job with the part... That being said, they probably could find someone else to take on the role who'll do just as well.

But I've also heard that Shailene is hard to work with so maybe they're firing her and covering it up?

I dunno, seems stupid. I mean I know how important Gwen Stacy is to the Spiderman mythos, but Mary Jane Watson has been the love interest for a the majority of the Spiderman run. It would make sense to introduce the MJ character and develop that relationship instead. I mean, if you need to cut characters, why not cut 1 of the 6 villains you have in the movie already? Or maybe Black Cat? At the very least, why recast Shailene Woodley? She still would have made a great MJ. Marc Webb is an

Thank god, she was horribly miscast for the role. As a long long time spidey fan, I don't care if shes a "bright" actress with a "big future". She does not fit the character. Find another talented actress who actually looks the part. Judging by the horrible casting of possibly the black cat, and MJ, I have to guess Webb has no idea how to match the actress to the iconic appeal/look of the characters and struck dumb luck on Emma Stone.

Ms. Woodley is a good actress, but didn't seem to be a good fit for MJ. Maybe there will be a different Spidey role for her in the future (Betty Brandt perhaps?). As for the new MJ, Olivia Wilde would be awesome. She's feisty, drop dead gorgeous and most importantly can act.

It's the perfect opportunity to recast MJ, since Shailene Woodley looks like she could be Andrew Garfield's fraternal twin sister. Seriously, just look at their faces side by side. They look uncannily like siblings.

Does not bode well.

Isn't this a decision that should have been made in pre-production? Doing this now when they've got to be nearly done with filming just seems irresponsible and lazy. I really would've loved to see her as Mary Jane...she's definitely a step-up from Kirsten Dunst. Side note: If Felicity Jones really is Black Cat, I lose all hope for this movie.

I like her as an actress and would have loved to see her as MJ. I hope the change was a logical decision on Webb''s part. Perhaps it could be argued that my taste in women is tamed when comparing it to the "majority", but I find her attractive.

She's a talented actress with a bright future ahead of her, so hopefully the studio caving in to fanboy demands doesn't take too much of a toll on her. This movie is looking like a disaster

I'm glad, because she never looked like MJ to me (neither did Dunst, but at least she was closer). As for this movie, I didn't like Webb's first one, and this is just sounding like more of the same.

Why is that I don't feel that sense of unbearable anticipation with Marc Webb's Spidey movies? I remember when Raimi was working on the first Spider-Man, there was this amazing trailer involving the twin towers. I mean, that trailer was about 2 minutes long, and it was such an amazing narrative to sell audiences. It had everything you needed in order to TEASE you for next summer's big attraction.

Then comes Spider-Man 2, like holy, does anyone remember that Dock Ock teaser poster? I must've stared at it on my computer screen for days when that was released. There really isn't a feel for effort in Marc Webb's Spider-Man, like I didn't hate TASM at all, but you all have to admit that the feeling wasn't 'there'. Raimi was obviously a Die Hard Spider-Man fan beforehand, and setting SM3 aside (which is a whole different debate) I'm just not as excited for this specific take on Spidey. Who knows right? Maybe I'm wrong, I only like to be critical on something after I've seen it, so maybe TASM2 will knock it out of the ballpark. But so far, the score in TASM wasn't even decent, and I struggled to share the same emotions I had with the characters in Raimi's franchise. I'm also not saying Marc Webb is a bad director, but it's still beyond me why Columbia gave Spidey to the director of 500 Days of Summer. Spidey needs to be taken on by an experienced action director, and one that is able to express a solid narrative while at it.

Shitty news. And I strongly disagree with those who say she should be recast.

After a disappointing reboot, Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane was the ONLY thing of interest for me in the sequel. I like her as an actress, think shes definitely hot enough to play the character (in a girl next door type of way, not the Todd Macfarlane supermodel version), and was curious how this character would be depicted in the new series. Supermodels look boring compared to Shailene Woodley, shes hot and has character.

The Spectacular Now starring her is my most anticipated movie

Supermodels look boring compared to Shailene Woodley, shes hot and has character.

The Spectacular Now starring her is my most anticipated movie of the summer so at least theres that. Smashed was one of the best movies of last year and Mary Elizabeth Winstead got snubbed at the oscars (there werent five performances better than that last year) as well as losing the Independent Spirit Awards to Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook (a HOLLYWOOD movie pretending to be indie).

So, until shes back into the picture or something of comparable interest happens with this series, Im done reading about it. Also, I find it amusing that theyre giving news on not only this but The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and 4. Nothing against joblo since I love this site but weve reached new heights of hearing way too much about movies before theyre released.

Is it just me, or the screenwriters have been winging it since Day 1? I remember like two years ago the story was originally going to delve into Peter's parents and how they factored into his becoming Spider-Man. There was even that "untold story" tag in the trailers and posters. Lo and behold they dropped that in favor of a retread of the whole origin story. Now they said MJ was going to be in it, but she's not anymore??? These guys need to make up their minds!

This movie just sounds like a mess. First we heard it would be Electro and Rhino. Then, the Osborns and Mary Jane got cast. Then rumors of Vulture, and now Black Cat? Will this movie just be 5 minutes of each character getting up from a chair, introducing themselves and then sitting down?

Plus, yeah, they needed to recast this...

Cost

I wonder how much it cost to pay her, provide her trailer, feed her at the craft service table, shoot all the scenes she was in, and pay the editor to cut her scenes together before cutting them out altogether. Ahh Hollywood efficiency.

FYI, it's much cheaper to make these type of decisions when you're only paying a writer to push the DELETE button.

"Basically admitting" -- umm... no?

Felicity Jones very clearly stumbled through an answer to a random, blindsiding question. She COULD be Felicia/Black Cat in the end, as a small cameo, but that interview is far from her "basically admitting" anything. My guess (and I'm rehashing a previous post) is that she's a much smaller character, and not knowing the Spider-Man mythology all that well, she couldn't give an educated answer. I said Betty Brant before, I'll say it again. Betty Brant.

This is good news. I really like the Gwen and Peter chemistry.

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone playing off each other was the best part of The Amazing Spider-Man for me. You can't fake chemistry that good.

They need to use this time to recast. This is a major miscast in my opinion

Due to the large amount of characters, Peter Parker/Spider-Man has also been cut from film and will reappear in a cameo role in The Amazing Spiderman 3

I wonder if this had anything to do with the internet backlash from set photos. If MJ gets recast, then we'll really know.

Well, that must be a bummer for her, but I guess given the expanding roster it's a good thing that they're cutting characters from the movie. It seems like a rather drastic change/one that might require major rewrites.

I still think they could of casted better for the role. At least her storyline won't be forced or quickly rushed.

Nothing gets me going more than hot girls being disappointed.
