Mary Jane may be re-cast for ‘The Amazing-Spiderman 3′ due to Shailene Woodley’s hectic ‘Divergent’ schedule

We already knew that Shailene Woodley’s scenes as MJ in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have been cut, and the director has said they plan to introduce her character in the third film. However, The Wrap is reporting that they have been told the role may have to be re-cast due to Shailene’s busy scedule for shooting the upcoming Divergent sequels. That’s what happens when you land the lead in a huge franchise! However, nothing is confirmed, and the scheduling may be worked out so she can stay on-board Spider-Man.

“Director Marc Webb has decided to streamline the story and introduce Mary Jane in “The Amazing Spider-Man 3.” However, an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap that Woodley will likely be busy with the sequels to her upcoming sci-fi movie “Divergent” and may not be available, so the role may have to be recast.”


Do you want Shailene to stay on board as Mary-Jane?

    well we can’t say anything for sure until we see how divergent performs at the box office but wouldn’t be a smart idea to make sure her schedules align before casting her as MJ?

    I’m thinking they filmed the Spiderman MJ scenes before Divergent began filming.

    Nooooooooooooooooo. God she’s an awful actress and she’s being cast in all of these iconic roles and I think that it’s an awful idea.

  • zara

    she was cast in divergent first.

    I want to see Shai as MJ so bad… But if she’s too busy I understand.

    Calm down. She has a right to an opinion. There is no need for foul language, expressing your opinion in a civilized manner would have done the job.

    Hopefully the Divergent movies don’t sway to much from the books. Don’t expect it to be as good but still excited to watch it.

    Also, not a very flattering picture of Ms Woods.

    In all honestly I think a lot of people judge her on The Secret Life of the American Teenager, but when you really look at that show it was the writing that was so bad, not Shailene. She proved herself in The Descendants in my opinion and I’m really looking forward to her in Divergent (she is exactly as I pictured Tris.)
