urlNews broke today, hot on the heels of the announcement that Sony will be going forward with both The Amazing Spider Man 3 and 4, that Shailene Woodley, who filmed scenes as Peter Parker’s love interest Mary Jane Watson, has been cut from the film. Director Marc Webb revealed that he wanted to streamline the story, and focus on Peter Parker’s relationship with Gwen Stacy in the upcoming Spider Man sequel. This would mean Mary Jane’s introduction in the 3rd film, and it was reported that the role would most likely be recast, and that Woodley would not make an appearance.

This news adds more heavily to the theory that the studio will go forward in the sequel with one  of the most memorable Spider Man arcs- where Gwen Stacy is killed. I, for one, in a desire to see more of Emma Stone’s portrayal of the character, hope they do not.

The Amazing Spider Man 2 is set to be released on May 4th, 2014.

Also in superhero news, Joss Whedon recently gave an interview promoting his new film, Much Ado About Nothing, in which he touches upon the upcoming Avengers 2. Whedon mentioned that Loki, the first film’s antagonist played by Tom Hiddleston, will not be back in the highly anticipated sequel, at least not in any major capacity at this time. Marvel’s The Avengers 2 will be released on May 1st, 2015.
