Shailene Woodley comments on being cut from 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' (video) caught up with Shailene Woodley at Comic-Con and asked for her thoughts on being cut from The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Woodley echoed what director Marc Webb said — she was cut purely for story reasons. There are a lot of new characters being introduced in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and they felt that introducing an important character like Mary Jane Watson should be saved for the third movie. Woodley went on to praise The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and said it was one of the best scripts she’s ever read. She doesn’t directly mention if she’ll be returning as Mary Jane in The Amazing Spider-Man 3, but I get the sense that she will not. Check out the video above and let me know what you think in the comments.
