Hi people of the internet, time for me talk about another news in the world of film relating to upcoming superhero films and this one involves actress Shailene Woodley (the lady who was supposed to be Mary Jane Watson in Amazing Spider-Man 2). The following info comes from ComicBookMovie:
“Despite saying that “anything can happen”, Shailene Woodley seems confident that her commitments to Divergent and the fact that she’s heard nothing from the studio means that she won’t be returning as ‘Mary Jane Watson’ in The Amazing Spider-Man 3.
For those of you unable to watch the video, the actress says: “Andrew kills it. I don’t know anything, but seeing as how they picked up the next two Divergent films, I don’t know how I’d keep my sanity with two big action films in one year. But, anything can happen, so…”“
Well this is kind of surprising. So let’s look at the at the facts that’s come before this point. Miss Woodley shot scenes for Amazing Spidey 2, then gets cut from the film and we’re told by Marc Webb it was due to the filmmakers wanting to make the film more about Peter and Gwen and were reassured that she’ll show up in the next Spidey film. That’s what we were told a little while ago. Now apparently Woodley’s not heard nothing back from the studio. This sounds question. Now this could mean one of two things:
- Either she may not come back at all and will be replaced.
- Or it may just be that the people over at Sony and the filmmakers will eventually get back to her later on in the year and get her back into production.
To be honest I’ve heard Woodley’s a good actress and don’t doubt that, however I was never keen on the idea of her being Mary Jane, no offence to her but as MJ I didn’t get that vibe from her and I feel like we’d need someone to compete with the insanely gorgeous Emma Stone. Because after all it is a competition of looks and personality in the comics and that needs to be reflected in the films too.
So what do you think of this news? Discuss below! 😀
