Sony Reportedly Looking For New Actress To Play 'Mary Jane' In THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3
Despite the fact that director Marc Webb released a statement in which he explained the "creative decision" to remove Shailene Woodley's scenes from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it is now being reported that the actress will not return and that the part of MJ will be recast.
Earlier today, it was revealed that Shailene Woodley's scenes from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 had been cut from the movie. Director Marc Webb would later release a statement in which he revealed that he made this decision in order to focus on the relationship between Peter (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen (Emma Stone). Well, despite saying that "we all love working with her", The Hollywood Reporter has revealed the following in their report on The Descendants actress no longer appearing in the sequel: "It is likely that Woodley will not return and that the part will be recast." However, rather than it being a case of the studio not being happy with her performance as Mary Jane Watson, The Wrap adds: "Woodley will likely be busy with the sequels to her upcoming sci-fi movie "Divergent" and may not be available, so the role may have to be recast."
In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
