SPOILERS: Why were Shailene Woodley's scenes cut from The Amazing Spider-Man 2?

06.26.2013

Before I begin, let's get this out of the way-- these are rumors despite the fact that they are part of the actual story of Spider-Man/Peter Parker.

Again, this is part of the storyline that the majority of you already know and were prepared for. These have to do with the speculation on why Shailene Woodley's scenes were cut from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. I may have already said too much...

So here's the deal: I'm going to drop this image below if you scroll past it you will see spoilers. I have warned you.

Hollywoodlife.com has learned exclusively from a source as to a possible reasons why Woodley was cut:

Emma Stone’s character dies in the next film and that really would take a bunch out of the film if Spider-Man all the sudden starts dating a new girl so close to an important characters death. They were noticing this occurring as they filmed Shailene’s scenes. They want to make the death of Gwen Stacy really mean something and then it will leave room for Shailene to shine in the third film.

After sorting everything out, you could have probably already guessed that. Why downplay such a huge event like the death of Gwen Stacy? Not to mention the fact that they already have a smorgasbord of characters in the sequel. Nice to know that Woodley isn't going anywhere, or at least I hope.

Okay, first off...I hadn't ever noticed Shailene before I found out she was MJ in ASM2...and then, I don't think I've ever seen her photo until this site kept putting up that god awful plain Jane behind the scenes photo of her whenever there was a related report on her playing MJ. That photo above explains why others said she was cute. Still, the power of make up and lighting, eh?

As for this story, I'm still more than annoyed how Peter brushed off Captain Stacy's dying wish so quickly

As for this story, I'm still more than annoyed how Peter brushed off Captain Stacy's dying wish so quickly with that very disrespectful line about "those are the best kind" in reference to don't make promises you can't keep. At least let the first film end with Peter trying to honour a dead man's wish ... a man who had just saved him moments before dying. Going back on the promise could have been saved for part 2 after Peter had tried to honour it. I really liked the depressing ending where Gwen had realised why Peter had been staying away from her...not even showing up at the funeral...and it was f'd up in that closing scene...where they thought they were trying to be cute (note, Raimi's Spider-Man got this spot on when Peter walks away from MJ at the end of the first movie). Glad they're going to handle Gwen's death more respectfully.

So does this mean Woodley is still Mary Jane? Or has she been officially cut as previously reported?

Doesn't matter why her scenes were cut. Shailene Woodley should never play Andrew Garfield's love interest in any film, unless the goal of the film is to portray incest.

It's his weird ass roundabout way of saying Garfield and Woodley look similar enough to be brother and sister.

early death?

from the way they worded that it looks like the original script has Qwen Stacy die by the half-way mark, leaving the second half of the film to develop Mary Jane. So now without MJ, the second half will mostly be Peter out for revenge/justice

also, i hope they solve his uncles murder already. dragging that out is one of the worst things both franchises have done

I'm all kinds of confused

Someone just give me a straight answer. A simple yes or no will suffice.

Is Woodley still on as MJ or not?

Wait, didn't they say they were going to recast the role for pt. 3? Maybe I missed something?

Each article about this film is getting crazier and crazier. So far this film just seems like one BIG clusterfuck.

But yeah they should make Gwen's death have a big impact and have it actually mean something. I have no problem waiting for Mary Jane to appear in Amazing Spider Man 3.

So was The Hollywood Reporter wrong in saying that MJ would be recast? Or were they just making the assumption that since MJ was bumped to TASM3 that the part was up for grabs? Presumably Woodley was cast in the first place as the result of an amazing screen-test or incredible chemistry with Garfield. Looks like it might be time for a comment from Sony or Mark Webb regarding Woodley's involvement?

Makes enough sense, I guess. I know lots of people were a little peeved that Peter immediately broke the promise he made to Gwen's dying father though.

Not shocking at all...

In fact, the day the news came out about her moving to the third film that's exactly what I said made the most sense...and of course I received plenty of negative marks. Shocking.

Do you have any other MFC Profiles you post with because I can't find any comments from you on the previous articles regarding her character or casting. There don't appear to be any on the article about her moving to the third film. Was this a prediction you made on a different movie website and were the negative marks given by other readers? Did any of that even happen???

Well...

I still think that Sarah Gadon is playing Black Cat.

She's more like the character than Felicity Jones is.

I still dont understand why you guys posted that Sarah Gadon was taking over for Woodley on Amazing Spider Man 2 when the article you posted the day before clearly stated Woodley was locked on and pushed for part 3 instead for better of the characters. ? It's been like 4 stories for nothing
