Shailene Woodley was supposed to appear in Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as Mary Jane Watson, but her scenes ended up on the cutting room floor. The reason why it was cut because Webb wanted to focus on making the story less cluttered…aside from all the other subplots including Electro’s and Green Goblin’s origin and etc.

During the Insurgent press event, Woodley told Clevver Movies that she is still down to play the redhead bombshell who becomes Peter Parker’s significant other. It was also her first time finding out that Spider-Man is now going to be part of the Marvel cinematic universe.

“Oh, yeah,” she replied. “I didn’t know that actually. That’s amazing.”

After finding out it’s being rebooted, she gave an enthusiastic “Heck yeah!”

With Sony and Marvel looking for a really young Peter Parker, the odds of Woodley portraying Mary Jane are slim.

Check out the interview below.

The next solo Spider-Man film is expected to hit theaters on July 28, 2017, with rumor of Drew Goddard directing and the title being The Spectacular Spider-Man.
