“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” dominated box offices across the country this weekend, and was packed with characters from the comics. But there was one very conspicuous absence: Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson.
Woodley was cast as Peter Parker’s red-headed flame opposite Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, but the character never got to see the big screen. Fans hoped that they might at least get a glimpse of Woodley as Watson in deleted scenes when it’s released on Blu-Ray.
MTV News decided to get to the bottom of the issue once and for all, along with whether or not the studio would hold on to Woodley’s scenes or release them to the public.
“I think we’ll just keep that, it’s so brief,” Webb said. “It was just a couple of days, and we really wanted to focus on the Gwen Stacy storyline.”
Sorry, Shailene fans! But Webb did open up a little about some other, non-Mary Jane scenes that might be included.
“There’s a few scenes that’ll be on the DVD,” Webb explained, “but they’re not massive, earth-shattering scenes that change the story.”
Hopefully, someday, we’ll get to see Woodley’s Mary Jane in a Super-Special Edition of “Amazing Spider-Man 2.” But it’s not this day, Spider-Fans.
