Shailene Woodley unsure whether she wants to return as Mary Jane Watson for The Amazing Spider-Man 3

Having been controversially cut from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Shailene Woodley looks set to turn down any possible return to the Spidey franchise as Mary Jane Watson due to her commitments to the Divergent franchise.

When asked of the likelihood of her return for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 by Total Film, she responded, “I have no idea and I don’t know that I’d even want to do two franchises at this point, having been through this.”  

Divergent made over $50 million in its first weekend in the US and with the sequel already green-lit for a March 20th, 2015 release date, it looks as if leaving the Spidey franchise won’t be affecting her too much.

Woodley will next be seen in Fault in Our Stars, an adaptation of John Green’s popular novel, while The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set for release on April 18th in the UK and on May 1st in North America, with Andrew Garfield (Spider-Man), Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy), Sally Field (Aunt May), Chris Zylka (Flash Thompson), Campbell Scott (Richard Parker), Embeth Davidtz (Mary Parker), Martin Sheen (Ben Parker) and Denis Leary (George Stacy) joined in the cast by franchise newcomers Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained) as Electro, Dane DeHaan (Chronicle) as Harry Osborn, Paul Giamatti (12 Years a Slave) as The Rhino, Chris Cooper (American Beauty) as Norman Osborn, Colm Feore (Thor) as Donald Menken, Felicity Jones (Like Crazy) as Felicia Hardy, Marton Csokas (The Lord of the Rings) as Dr. Kafka, and B.J. Novak (The Office) as Alistair Smythe.

    She should really think of her future acting career. If The Amazing Spider Man 3 does really well and the Divergent sequel bombs then she’ll have something to fall back on. She would be a pretty good Watson too!
