Shailene Woodley in 'Spiderman' Casting: Actress Having Doubts for New Casting

By on

Thanks to her outstanding performance in "Divergent," Shailene Woodley was reportedly eyed for the upcoming "Spiderman" movie as the new Mary Jane Watson. Now after a box office hit last week, the actress is moving ahead with another big-budget blockbuster franchise but still has doubts for the new casting.

The 22-year-old actress was set to play Mary Jane in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," but director Marc Webb cut her character out of the film. The original plan is to have her show up in the sequel and have her in the third installment with a bigger role.

"I don't know anything, but seeing as how they picked up the next two Divergent films, I don't know how I would keep my sanity with two big action films in one year," says Woodley when asked about the possibility of playing a role in "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" in an interview posted in

When asked about her stint with "Spider-man," Shai revealed that it was "quick" but "nice" and couldn't stop gushing about Andrew Garfield. "It was quick - I did three scenes, so it was three days it was nice, it wasn't anything too intense," Woodley added.

"It was really great because I got to work with Andrew Garfield who is an incredible actor and just an all round really, really amazing human being, so it was nice to meet him and to have that experience," recalled the actress while it was an upcoming movie. 

The actress was spotted recently wearing a phenomenal white dress in the black carpet event at the Cinestar am Potsdamer Platz in Berlin on April 1. Dressed by carpet designer Zuhair Murad, Woodley looked regal as she shares a lot of similarities with red carpet pro "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart.

The "Spectacular Now" star totally stole the spotlight when all eyes were on her as she walked the black carpet. She was joined by her leading man Theo James plus director Neil Burger, she plays Beatrice "Tris" Prior in the sci-fi action movie.
