No Mary Jane??
Mary Jane, perhaps the most famous Spider-Man girlfriend, was set to make her first appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with actress Shailene Woodley. However, it is said that Mary Jane won’t make an appearance at all until the 3rd Spider-Man movie.
According to sources, Shailene Woodley disclosed in an interview in the print edition of the latest Entertainment Weekly that her debut as the character has been postponed until the third entry in the series, despite already filming scenes for next year’s sequel.
“Of course I’m bummed,” Woodley is quoted on the site. “But I’m a firm believer in everything happening for a specific reason… based on the proposed plot, I completely understand holding off on introducing (Mary Jane) until the next film.”
However, it also seems like that Woodley will be replace by other actress to be MJ. Director Marc Webb states that he “made a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship. … Shailene is an incredibly talented actress and while we only shot a few scenes with Mary Jane, we all love working with her.”
While it’s confirmed that MJ will be introduced in The Amazing Spider-Man 3, it’s also state that it’s likely that Woodly will not return, and the part will be recast…
Just what the hell is going on here? Did she get into an argument with the director or something?
Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set for release on May 2, 2014, with the third and forth Spidey films recently scheduled for June 10, 2016 and May 4, 2018.
