|Woodley will not be caught in Spidey's web|
Well, Spidey fans, it looks like a pumpkin-bomb has been thrown into our web, because director Marc Webb and Sony Pictures have decided that Mary Jane Watson will not be appearing in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but will be making her first appearance in the third installment (which has already been greenlit for 2016, along with a fourth for 2018).
"I made a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship," Webb said of his choice to put off introducing another love interest at this time.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, actress Shailene Woodley was only on set for a few days and had only filmed a limited number of scenes -- none of which will appear on the big screen. It is also believed that the role will be recast for the next installments of the franchise.
