Mary Jane Will NOT Be In 'Amazing Spider-Man 2'

This comes as shock, considering The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is nearly complete.  But it appears that Shailene Woodley's Mary Jane will not be in the sequel.  And according to some whispers, it's not necessarily because the character doesn't fit, but rather Woodley's poor portrayal of the character and lack of chemistry with Andrew Garfield.

So MJ is being scrapped until the third film -- and the role is likely to be recast.
Shailene Woodley’s role as Mary Jane has been bumped from the second installment of The Amazing Spider-Man (due out in 2014) to the third (due out in 2016). “Of course I’m bummed,” she tells EW in an exclusive statement. “But I am a firm believer in everything happening for a specific reason. MJ only appeared in a few scenes and I wouldn’t trade the experience of working with Andrew and Emma for three days on set for the world. Based on the proposed plot, I completely understand the need for holding off on introducing MJ until the next film.”
And honestly, no offense to Shailene, but I just don't believe she was right for the role of Mary Jane Watson.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters May 2, 2014.
