Shailene Woodley Cut From 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - No Mary Jane Watson

Shailene Woodley had shot several scenes for Spider-Man 2 and then the director said she would not be needed any longer as he didn't want Mary Jane Watson in the second film. Marc Webb said he wanted to focus on Emma Stone's character so just cut Shailene out completely. Even though he says she will be back for the third installment. I wonder if that is true or not and wonder whether Shailene did something that got her booted from the movie. When you are paying someone whether they work or not, you usually want to have them in the movie, especially considering it is Mary Jane. Shailene says that she understands and is looking forward to the third installment where her character will be introduced. Probably.

I read that they're planning to re-cast the role for the third and fourth movies.

Any recent blinds that could be about this?

Whatever, she's doesn't need that. She's Tris in fucking Divergent. Can't wait!

Maybe she wasn't working out, or they wanted to go in a different direction? I don't know, it seems strange.

I hope they recast for 3. Love Emma Stone; will sacrifice her to boot Andrew. He's a pompous bitch Spider-man.

I wonder which part was cast first. If she was cast as Mary Jane and filmed scenes before taking the starring role in Divergent, this may have created a conflict for Spider-Man producers.
These are two huge franchises, I can imagine they won't want film goers to see Mary Jane as Tris.

It doesn't always have to mean something bad -- sometimes the director just wants to go in a different direction. For example, Kevin Costner's scenes in The Big Chill were totally cut out, and his big break ended up not happening at all (in that film).

rumors has it they took her out because fanboys thought she wasnt hot enough to be MJ

Liz L said...

Does it have something to do with her (Amy Jergens) and Andrew getting close and Emma getting pissed off?

Sherry said...

Well if Shailene isn't hot enough those fan boys need to have their heads examined.

It's probably more of what Bubbles said. They people all the time who end up on the editing room floor as they say.

I thought a blind from a couple days ago discussed a tweener getting booted from a big gig because of a shiny new coke addiction.

If you've read the comics and/or know the Gwen Stacy storyline, it's pretty obvious why MJ was cut from the film. (disclaimer: i am a huge nerd girl and a big Gwen Stacy fan. i can't stand mary jane).

She is getting heavy. Losing her looks.

If fans complained about she is not hot enough, they had to be really pissed off at K.Dunst on that movies.
I write this having only see this girl in the pic upside, maybe she is an uruk hai in every other place.

Ahh, show biz.

@therealDragon fanboys thought this girl wasn't hot enough but approved of Kristen Dunst

littlejenny said...

fuck yeah! me either!!!!

littlejenny said...

if that's true, then I'm super confused. she is WAYYYYY better looking than emma stone! in fact, emma stone isn't even close to good looking. she's beat, too thin and has that lisp. no.

WBotW said...

I actually agree that she isn't physically attractive enough for the role. My first reaction when I saw her was 'whaaaaaaaa?!?!?'

MadLyb said...

Isn't she a dick, though? If the blinds about her are true and not completely made up, that is.

Flora Goforth said...

I doubt she is making enough for them to worry about her sitting this one out.

LittleRobinBird said...

Didn't Emma Stone tweeted an anagram for "Andrew and Shailene sitting on a tree"? Maybe something happened between them and she was booted.
