Shailene Woodley is running Hollywood right now. She's on the cover of Entertainment Weekly this week, promoting her movie Divergent as "the next Hunger Games," and it doesn't even come out for another nine months. She was also cast in another huge book adaptation, The Fault in Our Stars, and is currently filming The Amazing Spider-Man 2. OK! News: See the hilarious gif of Leonardo DiCaprio breakdancing in his new movie trailer. Or at least, she was until today. The studio behind the Spider-Man confirmed that her scenes have been cut from the film, and that this film will focus more on Emma Stone's character, Gwen Stacy. This is super weird on many levels. Are you ready for a few of them? One, Shailene plays the second most important character in the whole franchise (second only to Spider-Man, of course). Mary Jane Watson is his great love. Even if she only had a few scenes, they would be significant, right? Two, Emma Stone's character Gwen Stacy was probably going to be killed in this movie. Now what? "I made a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship," said director Marc Webb. But... Three, they've been filming this movie for four months. They just decide to change the entire plot of the film? OK! News: The Anchorman 2 trailer is out! Watch now and LOL. Four, this is coming off news that Sony has ordered two more sequels, for 2016 and 2018. When will we meet Mary Jane, and will they recast Shailene? Five, who can forget that deleted Emma Stone tweet, an anagram for "Andrew and Shailene sitting in a tree?"? Emma has explained that she never tweets and that her verified account was hacked, which we actually buy because Emma is such a lovely, classy gal and coded tweets about boy drama are definitely not her bag. Six, again, they've been filming this enormously expensive movie for four months. They even filmed Gwen Stacy's death scene (probably!). Imagine calling your boss and saying, "Oh, I changed my mind. Can I have another $150 million?" Are you disappointed that Shailene was cut from the movie? Are you excited that there will be more Emma in the movie?

Despite shooting a handful of scenes as Mary Jane Watson in Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Shailene Woodley will not be appearing in the superhero sequel after all, the studio confirms. The Mary Jane character – the most famous of Peter Parker’s comic book love interests – will instead be pushed to the third film so that the rebooted franchise can focus on the relationship between Peter (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) first established in 2012′s The Amazing Spider-Man. “I made a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship,” director Marc Webb explained in a statement. “Shailene is an incredibly talented actress and while we only shot a few scenes with Mary Jane, we all love working with her.” It’s unclear if Woodley’s already-filmed scenes will be saved for use in the third film, which has a ways to go before it hits theaters in 2016. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is currently in production and set to hit theaters May 2, 2014. This week Sony dated the third and fourth installments in the series for June 10, 2016 and May 4, 2018.
