Super Hero Hype brings us the following:
Some of the first images to come from the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 set were of actress Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, and now it appears that footage won't be seen in the upcoming sequel. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly (thanks to SHH user 'fuflipflops'), Woodley confirmed that her character will be cut out of the second movie and won't appear until the third film in the series.
"Of course I'm bummed," said the actress. "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."
"I made a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship," said director Marc Webb in a statement. "Shailene is an incredibly talented actress and while we only shot a few scenes with Mary Jane, we all love working with her.”The Amazing Spider-man 2 will hit theaters on 02 May 2014.
