I'm not so sure, I didn't expect it.
What do you think about Shailene Woodley being Mary Jane Watson?
She doesn't necessarily strike me as Mary Jane, but she's a good actrees, I have faith.
Anyone mind listing off stuff she's been in? I've never even heard of her.
Same here. If she's been in something i've seen I don't remember her.
The two biggest things she's been in are the movie The Descendants, and a terrible TV show called The Secret Life of the American Teenager. She was great in The Descendants, and she's good in American Teenager, she's not the problem for the show, it's terrible writing.
Seen her in a few episodes of the secret life of an american teenager show she was in..GOOD LORD SHE WAS AWFUL. So bad. I cried at how bad she was. She's far too young to compare to Andrew Garfield and is not nearly as feisty as MJ should be. Awful casting, etc.
I was surprised to hear that she would (most probably) play MJ in the sequel. Not the bad kind of surprise but I didn't even account for her in my list of actresses who were capable of portraying Spidy's girl. Is she good or bad? I have no idea. I have yet to see her acting talents. I do have high hopes for the sequel though seeing as I really enjoyed the first one. :)
Mary Jane Watson is gone from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, despite the fact that actress Shailene Woodley was cast in the role and filmed multiple scenes for Sony’s superhero sequel. Director Marc Webb explained that MJ from the film “to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship.” According to a new interview, Woodley is more than satisfied by that logic.
“She was only going to be in four scenes,” she tells Empire. “I think it’s really incredibly smart that she’s not in it, looking back at it now, because they’re introducing so many characters and MJ is such a vital character that it makes sense to hold off for future movies to introduce her.”
Rumor has it that Woodley won’t play Mary Jane at all now, with the role recast in a future Spider-Man movie. Even if we never see her take on the character, Woodley at least got to speak Mary Jane’s famous line, “Face it, tiger, you just hit the jackpot.”
“I did say it,” she laughed.
Opening May 4, 2014, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, Colm Feore and Sally Field. Webb, Garfield, Foxx and DeHaan will appear today at Sony’s Hall H Presentation at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
