It looks like Peter Parker will have to find another redhead to playfully call him "tiger."
Shailene Woodley's role as one of Spider-Man's greatest love interests, Mary Jane Watson, has been cut from the upcoming "The Amazing Spider-Man" sequel, according to a statement from the film's director, Marc Webb.
"I made a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship," Webb said. "Shailene is an incredibly talented actress and while we only shot a few scenes with Mary Jane, we all love working with her."
Woodley - who is well known from her acclaimed performance in 2011's "The Descendants" and from the lead role in "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" - is considerably "bummed" about not being able to sling webs with everyone's favorite neighborhood wall crawler, but ultimately understands Webb's decision.
"Of course I'm bummed," Woodley told Entertainment Weekly. "But I am a firm believer in everything happening for a specific reason. MJ only appeared in a few scenes and I wouldn't trade the experience of working with Andrew [Garfield] and Emma [Stone] for three days on set for the world."
The exclusion of Mary Jane is telling, however. Comic book fans will remember that Peter and Gwen's relationship (spoiler at the link) doesn't exactly end well, which could open up a return for MJ (and possibly Woodley) in the just announced third and fourth films.
"Based on the proposed plot, I completely understand the need for holding off on introducing MJ until the next film," Woodley said.
that is all
You look like a little brat
Should have fired that new dorky looking Spider-Man. Looks like Dr. Who mated with a goat and Spider-Wuss was born.
Bring her back and get a better choice for Peter Parker.
Should'a cut Garfield.

Shailene!? What kind of drugs were her parents on when ythey named her? I prefer "Afterbirth" or if you are looking for something unique; "Afterbyrth".
Omg you can sing Joline by Dolly Parton and replace the name with Shailene! It sounds hilarious! Shaileeeeene!!
Christopher Cross had a song called 'Sailing' way back when. Replace the word Sailing with Shailene, and the song still makes sense.
I've got a job for her..
Is it clleaning toilets? I'll do that for free.
This article is kind of misleading. Apparently Shailene only filmed a few brief scenes, and those were cut from this particular film. That doesn't mean those scenes won't be included in the next sequel, or that Shailene has been cut entirely from the film series and that "Peter Parker will have to find another redhead to playfully call him tiger." Way to mishandle the facts, CNN.
But they also didn't say that she would be in the other films... and that would upset people too if he reported she "might" be in the other films. so lose-lose situation for the writer and he is just trying to get reads.... not facts were wrong. she was cut from the "sequel" key word sequel sir. fact correct.
pucker up, buttercup...
She does in fact have a cute set of perkies.
I would name them George, and I would hug them and pet them and squeeze them and motorboat them and give them a pearl necklace...
She's cute. I like her boobs.
