June 19 (UPI) -- The sequel to 2012's "Amazing Spider-Man" won't feature Shailene Woodley's Mary Jane Watson, after all.

Director Marc Webb completely cut out several scenes featuring Mary Jane in an attempt to "streamline" the film, The Hollywood Reporter said Wednesday.

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

According to Deadline, there's no official word on whether Woodley will actually return for the third film.

“Of course I’m bummed,” Woodley told Entertainment Weekly of the change.

But I am a firm believer in everything happening for a specific reason. MJ only appeared in a few scenes and I wouldn’t trade the experience of working with Andrew and Emma for three days on set for the world. Based on the proposed plot, I completely understand the need for holding off on introducing MJ until the next film.
