Why Shailene Woodley Should Not be Recast in The Amazing Spider-Man Franchise


It has now been confirmed that Shailene Woodley has been cut from The Amazing Spider-Man 2. What’s disappointing is that this may not be story-motivated but instead a buckle to the pressure of loud, misogynistic fanboys who furiously took to their keyboards to insult the actress’ appearance. Despicable enough that these comments existed in the first place, it led to a lot of people defending Shailene Woodley – her talent and her appearance. It seemed good had triumphed over evil but with this confirmation and possible recast rumours, it seems the evil may have consumed the film. Mary Jane’s recasting isn’t definite but with her cut from the second after all of the abuse from fraudulent “fans” of the franchise – in all of its incarnations – could the rumours floating around have some truth? It may be one of the lowest points of the film industry. Lower than when Mila Kunis had her career threatened for not wanting to shoot for a magazine cover.
