When it was announced that Shailene Woodley had been cast in the role of Mary Jane Watson for the movie The Amazing Spider-Man 2, there was mixed reactions from fans all over the world. Some fans felt that Shailene's acting talents would make her perfect for the role, while others felt that she did not look right for Mary Jane.

Shailene went ahead and filmed her scenes as Mary Jane in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, before it was confirmed that her scenes had been cut from the movie and Woodley would no longer play Mary Jane Watson in The Amazing Spider-Man franchise. While there have been rumours about why this happened, the exact reasons have now been confirmed.
 
Director Marc Webb told The LA Times, "Shailene is a brilliant actress, and she did a great couple days of work. But it was very difficult to introduce someone as a competing love interest when so much is on the table with Peter and Gwen."

Meanwhile, producer Matt Tolmach added, "We bit off more than we can chew. We had a superhero opera, and as great as Shailene is, she didn’t really co-exist with the bigger story we were telling. You can’t have Peter thinking about Gwen every moment and then there’s this girl next door who’s suddenly there. We weren’t ready for it."
 
With all that said, it is expected that we will now get to see Mary Jane Watson make her appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man 3, although we will have to wait to discover which actress will now take on the role.
