Shailene Woodley Isn’t Mary Jane Watson Anymore
“Ohmygod that helmet looks retarded. You’re fired.”
Sony made a big deal out of casting Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and even filmed scenes with her in New York. But then the Internet was all like, “Wait, I’m supposed to want to pee in that butt more than Emma Stone’s? Surely you jest,” and here we are. THR reports:
“I made a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship,” said Webb. “Shailene is an incredibly talented actress, and while we only shot a few scenes with Mary Jane, we all love working with her.”
The plan now is for Watson, one of Peter Parker/Spider-Man’s iconic love interests, to be introduced in the third movie.
It is likely that Woodley will not return and that the part will be recast.
And by “streamline” Marc Webb means the movie now includes Vulture, Hammerhead, Shocker, Silvermane, Chameleon, Michael Morbius, Boba Fett, Lex Luthor and Tobey Maguire with PTSD. (His superpower is he thinks Spider-Man banged his wife Natalie Portman while he was overseas. You don’t fuck with that.)
