Happy Shailene Woodley Wednesday everyone!

The day got kicked off with word that the actress who was set to play Mary Jane Watson in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 had been bumped to Spider-Man 3. Later in the day, director Marc Webb and Woodley both commented on the matter.

Marc Webb's statement:

"I made a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship. Shailene is an incredibly talented actress, and while we only shot a few scenes with Mary Jane, we all love working with her."

Woodley told Entertainment Weekly, "Of course I'm bummed. But I'm a firm believer in everything happening for a specific reason… Based on the proposed plot, I completely understand holding off on introducing Mary Jane until the next film."
