Fans of the Spider-Man franchise were intrigued to see how Marc Webb would deal with the inclusion of Mary Jane Watson to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 line-up, even if they were disappointed at Shailene Woodley being cast in the role. Unfortunately, fans will have to wait even longer before seeing Mary Jane Watson in The Amazing Spider-Man franchise.
It has been reported by the guys over at EW (via CBM) that Shailene Woodley's Mary Jane Watson has now been cut from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, as it id not the right time to introduce the character. Shailene had already filmed scenes for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 but they will now be scrapped, or even recycled for The Amazing Spider-Man 3.
Woodley spoke of the decision to leave out Mary ane, saying, "Of course I’m bummed. But I am a firm believer in everything happening for a specific reason…Based on the proposed plot, I completely understand the need for holding off on introducing [Mary Jane] until the next film."
We will now have to wait until 2016 to see Mary Jane Watson introduced to The Amazing Spider-Man franchise, when The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is released on June 10, 2016. In the meantime, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will open on May 2, 2014.
