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