“Of course I’m bummed. But I am a firm believer in everything happening for a specific reason,” the actress shared. “Based on the proposed plot, I completely understand the need for holding off on introducing [Mary Jane] until the next film.”

pretty disappointing. i would hate if that happened to me, prepping for it all to have them just say “No, later” -__-

I wonder if she’ll portray her in the next film.

I think the director decided to drop her scenes because the Black Cat is suppose to be in the movie. We all know she is one of Peter ‘s /Spiderman ‘s love interest. Imagining having Gwen, MJ, and Felicia Hardy all on screen at the same time. The movie would be cluttered with characters. I think the director decided to focus mainly on Gwen and Peter and provide closure to their relationship in this movie before the character moves on to MJ. I really like Shailene ‘s acting and I feel bad for her.

So all those scenes she filmed are just not going to be used?

I feel so bad for her, she filmed all of those scenes and now she isn’t even going to be in the movie…

WHAT?!?! THAT IS SOOOOO NOT FAIR! I just hope she at least gets to be MJ in the Amazing Spider-Man 3…..

it makes no sense to cut her out her scenes they are at the end of the movie she was going to star in Amazing Spider-man 3 as peter’s love interest
