Shailene Woodley Considering Not Returning As Mary Jane In “Amazing Spider-Man 3”

April 1, 20140 Comments

After filming only 3 quick scenes as Mary Jane Watson in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Shailene Woodley was cut from the movie. Director Marc Webb said that this was to make the story flow better, and M.J. would return in a future movie. Or not…

With the success of Divergent, it appears that the actress is more committed to that franchise and its sequels than Spider-Man. In the interview below with Total Film, the actress doesn’t seem too thrilled with being in two big franchises. Poor girl.

Hardcore fans weren’t happy with her casting in the first place declaring she wasn’t “hot” enough to play the role. I could see why she wouldn’t return due to the negative reactions and her scenes being cut. After Gwen, Peter needs Mary Jane in the sequels. Hopefully this leads to a more “faithful” casting with an actress who seems more passionate about the part.
