Director Marc Webb told, "I made a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship," with Woodley explaining to EW, "Of course I'm bummed, but I am a firm believer in everything happening for a specific reason."

Fans of Woodleys will have to wait until The Amazing Spider-Man 3 opens in 2016 to see her play Mary Jane, though Woodley will appear in the young adult adaptation Divergent on March 21, 2014.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters May 2, 2014, with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone reprising their roles as Peter and Gwen, with Jamie Foxx as Electro, the film's villain.
