Last summer the decision to cut Mary Jane Watson out of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was made, even though Shailene Woodley had already shot a couple of scenes. MTV’s Josh Horowitz caught up with Woodley over the weekend at the Sundance Film Festival and asked for a status on her return as Mary Jane in The Amazing Spider-Man 3.
Woodley explained that her commitment to the Divergent movie franchise will likely prevent her from being able to play MJ:
“I don’t know anything, but seeing as how they picked up the next two ‘Divergent’ films, I don’t know how I would keep my sanity with two big action films in one year,” she said. “But anything can happen.”
The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will hits theaters on June 10th, 2016 and production on that movie is rumored to begin later this year.
