    He didn't say. If MJ is only being introduced in the third film it would be odd to cast the part now. If Gadon is playing MJ and they've cast her now that might indicate, contrary to prior indications, that they're going to introduce MJ in the second film, with Gadon replacing Woodley in reshoots. Weird things going on with this film.

    Yeah, it is kinda weird that they'd say they weren't going to introduce MJ, and then go and possibly recast her.
    Not to much though. There's a pretty good chance Divergence is going to be at least fairly popular, and she's the lead in that rather than the supporting role she would have played in ASM2.

    Sarah Gadon is actually 26 and older than Shailene Woodley who is 21. Woodley is the one the looks like a teenager to me.

    Yeah, they need to be casting those closer to 30 to play these teenagers...

    Touche.

    I think she's a step down from the other girl they had cast to play MJ though.

    Remember that Marion Cotillard lied and said she wasn't playing Talia in TDKR in her interviews.

    SONY might have told her to deny it because of some of the negative reactions. We won't know for certain until the movie is released.

    Who, for all we know, might still. This Divergent could always flop, after all.

    But that's because her character's identity was a secret within the film itself. It's not an analogous situation.


    That's really kind of paranoid. They'd have to be incredibly inept at PR to replace Woodley with Gadon, release a false story about MJ being cut out altogether, then reveal the next day that Gadon was playing MJ, then try to walk that back by claiming she was playing someone else. That seems like just making things worse for themselves for no reason. It's far, far more likely that, because the news about Gadon's participation in the film came out around the same time as the unrelated news about Woodley's part being cut, someone in the perpetual game of telephone that is the Internet misinterpreted the two news items as being connected, or thought she looked right for the part and jumped to a conclusion.

    Gadon herself has now tweeted to confirm that she's playing a different character in the film:

    According to what I've heard, Fox didn't push the shooting schedule to accommodate Jennifer and Lionsgate at all. They locked her for a shoot starting in January 2013, because she signed the contract for X-Men before she signed for The Hunger Games, which means her X-Men obligations legally take precedence.

    That's why Lionsgate had a very tight schedule, which was the reason why Gary Ross decided to walk away, believing he wouldn't have enough time for pre-production. He's a director who doesn't delegate much and likes to have control over every aspect of the filmmaking. Simon Beaufoy walked away with him, and Lionsgate had to find a new director and a screenwriter. They were initially going to shoot Catching Fire from September to January. But then in November X-Men: DOFP got pushed back because of the change of director and Jennifer was free again until May, which gave Lionsgate more breathing room and more time for filming - so after Jennifer's break for the awards season, she and the rest of cast and crew went back to continue filming and do some reshoots in Hawaii.

    It was reported that Fox initially wanted to start production on Days of Future Past in fall 2012, but pushed it back to January 2013 to accomodate Lawrence's schedule on Catching Fire. There's this from IFC, for example:

    First official look at Electro, facing off Spidey in an Entertainment Weekly cover. I think the make-up and visuals look great and will probably look even better in motion.

    Andrew Garfield on Spider-Man's sexuality: 'Why can't he be gay?'
