    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    Sounds like the Sinister Six to me.

    No, someone would blink and move if there were two scheduled for release on the same weekend.

    According to a report in Entertainment Weekly the brief introduction of Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson is being scrapped from The Amazing Spider-Man 2. She'll now be introduced in The Amazing Spider-Man 3.

    Now The Hollywood Reporter is saying the part will likely be recast.

    ^That would make for an interesting story if true.

    Wow. Maybe the reaction to down to earth Mary Jane was too strong.

    Shame. I dug the realistic approach

    Now we'll probably get a bombshell actress to appease fans

    The reason the rumor of shailene being recast is she's going to be in her version of "the hunger games" called "Divergent"

    She's getting cut from ASM 2 because it might be too crowded or just doesn't fit the story

    If she can't squeeze in ASM 3 then she'll be recast

    We might never even see her scenes and a new MJ will be in ASM 3 and no one will know about Shailenes MJ

    If Divergent becomes a big hit, she might not have time to do ASM3 too.

    Not sure why she can't find the time for both like what Jennifer Lawrence is doing with X-men and The Hunger Games.

    Lionsgate and Fox coordinated shooting schedules, with Fox pushing the shoot for DOFP back a bit, to make sure Jennifer Lawrence could do both. Sony is looking to crank out Spider-Man films at a very fast pace, leaving little wiggle room for coordination with another franchise.

    Of course that may just be a convenient excuse for any recasting. Who knows.

    Given how crowded the film already is, this might not be a bad thing, though obviously it sucks from Shailene's POV (especially if she is re-cast for part 3).

    Jeff Sneider of The Wrap previously said he's been told there's no truth in that rumor. Wonder if she's playing a different part or if Sneider's information is wrong.

    Told by who exactly? Anyway, I posted the article as uncertain news as it should be right now. Now we play the waiting game on how they handle MJ.
