Shailene Woodley 'Could Be Re-Cast In Spider-Man 3'
Actress' role in future movies uncertain after she is edited out of part two...
The role of Mary Jane Watson could be re-cast in The Amazing Spider-Man 3, it has been reported.
The actress filmed a brief appearance in the second instalment of the Marvel superhero saga, which is currently in production - but it has now emerged that she will not be making the final cut.
Director Marc Webb said he wanted to "streamline" the story and concentrate on Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy's relationship. Mary Jane will be a love interest in the future movies.
And The Wrap reports that Woodley's commitments for TV sci-fi show Divergent mean that she is unlikely to be available to return for the next movie.
She said: "Of course I'm bummed. But I am a firm believer in everything happening for a specific reason... Based on the proposed plot, I completely understand the need for holding off on introducing [Mary Jane] until the next film."
The next two movies in the series were confirmed recently too.
