Shailene Woodley cut from Amazing-Spiderman 2

Jun 20 2013, 2:14am CDT | by

Shailene Woodley has been dropped from 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'.

The actress had been tapped to play the web-slinging superhero's eventual love interest Mary-Jane Watson in the action sequel, but despite filming numerous scenes, the star's role has been cut entirely from the film in order to concentrate on Spider-Man's earlier relationship with Gwen Stacy.

In the original 2012 film, Spider-Man's alter-ego Peter Parker, played by Andrew Garfield, is seen romancing Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy and director Marc Webb wants to explore that relationship further, resulting in the tough decision to not introduce Mary-Jane Watson in his sequel after all.

He said in a statement: ''I made a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship. Shailene is an incredibly talented actress and while we only shot a few scenes with Mary Jane, we all love working with her.''

Mary-Jane will now be introduced in the third 'Amazing Spider-Man' flick - which was recently confirmed for release in 2016 - however, Deadline.com ponders whether the role may be recast by the time the movie is filmed due to Woodley's burgeoning film career.

The actress is earning critical acclaim for her role in new independent film 'The Spectacular Now' and is also set to star in her own franchise, young adult book adaptation, 2014's 'Divergent', which has already been confirmed for a sequel.

Woodley was expected to be one of three major new cast members in the 'Spider-Man' sequel along with Dane DeHaan as Parker's friend Harry Osborn and Jamie Foxx as villain Electro.

The film is due in cinemas next summer.

Divergent DVD Review: Shailene Woodley Wows Us!

Aug 5 2014 4:36pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

Divergent arrives on DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download after its triumphant, $400 million gross, run in theaters. Veronica Roth’s blockbuster book could not have tapped a better director in Neil Burger and casting Shailene Woodley as our heroine, Tris. Roth’s story follows a dystopian world where the citizens of Chicago live behind a walled landscape and live their life in peace by being placed in one of five virtue-based factions. Woodley’s T ...

Earlier this year, Summit Entertainment launched a new franchise with Divergent.  The adaptation of the first novel in author Veronica Roth’s trilogy bore some resemblance to another post-apocalyptic franchise, but director Neil Burger ensured that his futuristic sci-fi thriller would stand alone.  He began by assembling an excellent cast led by Shailene Woodley, opted for a colorful visual approach heavy in luminosity, and took care in pleasing passionate fans of Roth’s source ...

Divergent

Apr 4 2014 9:37am CDT | Source: movie gazette

From the start of this film, with voice over from Tris (Shailene Woodley) setting out the scene as we pan over a broken and largely abandoned cityscape (Chicago, 100 years after the war) the visuals are stunning and an integral part of the story. I’m not usually a fan of narration, but it works here to bring us up to speed, otherwise people who haven’t read the book would be floundering in a sea of oddities. (Side no ...
