Here are three new official photos from the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that were tweeted out by director Marc Webb over the last few days. The one above is my favorite, and it came with the caption, "Living on the Edge."
Peter Parker finds, life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can't come quickly enough. Peter hasn't forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen's father to protect her by staying away – but that's a promise he just can't keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn, returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
The film opens up on May 2nd, 2014. Any theories about what the photos below could mean?

It was announced a couple of days ago that The Amazing Spider-Man was moving into parts 3 and 4 over the next few years (2016 and 2018) and with its ever growing cast of characters for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it seems one of them has been pushed back to the third part - Mary Jane Watson.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Shailene Woodley spoke about the decision: "Of course I'm bummed," said the actress. "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."
I'm sure all those nerds who felt she wasn't "hot" enough to play the part will be a little bit happy about this news.
How loud are a dozen fan boys complaining about an actress in the feedback section of a movie site? Pretty loud, it turns out. It was reported earlier today that Mary Jane Watson was being bumped from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, with the iconic Marvel character to debut in The Amazing Spider-Man 3 instead.
At the time this was confirmed, Shailene Woodley was expected to reprise her role as Mary Jane in the third chapter of this particular Spider-Man saga, coming to theaters in 2016. Now, it's looking like the role will be recast. When the first set photos of Shailene appeared on the Internet, comic book fanatics flocked to their resident comment sections to scream how wrong and unattractive she was for the part. It seems that producers may have listened to the multitude of complaints, changing her out under the guise that its better for the sequel and makes more »
Back in March the Oscar winner was in talks to join the film, but things deteriorated. This months talks began again, but apparently this is not to be.

With 9 days left to go, we can’t wait for “White House Down” or, as we dubbed it after watching the trailer, “the most awesome dumb movie of the summer.” Directed by Roland Emmerich (“Independence Day,” “The Day After Tomorrow”) and starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx as a police officer and the President of the United States facing a paramilitary group, this looks to be one explosive and laugh-filled to-be summer blockbuster. In addition to the trailer, we’ve got two more clips from the film and a music video from its leading men.The first clip shows Tatum and Foxx facing off against some baddies, with Tatum sliding across a dining table to find cover from a very built dude with a machine gun and Foxx kicking a bad guy with sketchy facial hair off of his leg, utilizing a pretty funny one-liner. The second shows Tatum instructing »

Well we all said the amount of key characters in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was getting out of hand, though we didn’t quite think it would come to this…
The Hollywood Reporter says Shailene Woodley’s portrayal of Mary Jane Watson is being Completely Cut Out of the web-slinging sequel, despite many of her scenes having already being shot. Not only that but it’s being reported that Woodley will likely “not return and that the part will be recast” for The Amazing Spider-Man 3, so the actress is out of the franchise completely.
Has she been booted out of the series or has she hinted that it’s not even worth asking if she’ll return because she ain’t interested after how she has been treated here?
Director Marc Webb is claiming that the character is gone because he needed to simplify the story (which is probably true »

Here’s what the young rising star had to say about the disappointing news: “Of course I’m bummed…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.”
Some superhero movies suffer from overstuffing, so I actually think this might end up being good news for the Marc Webb film. Besides, it appears she’s onboard for the third go around anyhow, and it’d likely be a beefed up role. »

Sandra Bullock does not fancy kicking some orphans around after all as it was revealed that she has turned down a role to be Miss Hannigan in the reboot of Annie. If you have been living under a rock for the last 30 years, Annie is a musical based on the comic strip Little Orphan Annie. It follows a young orphan girl as she sets out to find a family.
The remake, which is being produced by Will Smith and Jay Z, was eyeing up Sandra Bullock to play the infamous alcoholic caretaker of the orphanage, but it looks like the deals went flat and never made it out of negotiations. It is unclear on who the studio are looking for next.

The Oscar winner would have played the mean woman who runs the orphanage Annie and her friends call home. Ironically, Sandra Bullock was in talks for this same role back in March. Sources indicate this second round of negotiations never got past the early stages.
Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) and Jamie Foxx are still attached to portray Annie and Daddy Warbucks. Will Gluck is directing and rewriting the original script that was previously worked on by Emma Thompson and Aline Brosh McKenna.
Production is scheduled to start this fall, with Sony Pictures eyeing a 2014 release date. The studio will begin searching for a new actress to play Miss Hannigan immediately.
Annie comes to theaters December 25th, »
Even though actress Shailene Woodley has completed shooting her scenes as Mary Jane Watson in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it has been revealed that the character will not show up until the third movie. Webb explained,
The report comes from the latest print issue of EW, who say that Mary Jane Watson's role is now being saved for the third installment of the Marc Webb-directed franchise. When asked about it, Woodley said,
Of course I'm bummed. But I am a firm believer in everything happening for a specific reason...Based on the proposed plot, I completely understand the need for holding off on introducing [Mary Jane] until the next film.
Webb explained in a statement:

It looks like "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" got too crowded for Shailene Woodley. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Woodley revealed her appearance in the "Amazing Spider-Man" sequel has been cut.
"I made a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship," director Marc Webb said in a statement provided to Deadline.com. “Shailene is an incredibly talented actress and while we only shot a few scenes with Mary Jane, we all love working with her."
In the interview with Entertainment Weekly, Woodley expressed her dismay over the move, but remained positive. “Of course I’m bummed," she said to EW. "But I am a firm believer in everything happening for a specific reason. [...] Based on the proposed plot, I completely understand the need for holding off on introducing Mj until the next film."

Sony Pictures recently announced release dates for The Amazing Spider-Man 3, coming in 2016, and The Amazing Spider-Man 4, coming in 2018. What they failed to mention was how this would affect the plot of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Entertainment Weekly spoke with actress Shailene Woodley about her role in the upcoming Ya adaptation Divergent, where the actress revealed that her role as Mary Jane Watson has been bumped from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, with the scenes we saw being shot in New York City cut out of the film.
"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."

Bullock reportedly initially passed on the role when it was first offered to her, before later agreeing to further negotiations.
However, a source close to the production tells The Wrap that Bullock's representatives at CAA and executives at Sony were ultimately unable to finalise the deal.
Annie is scheduled to debut in theatres on Christmas Day 2014.
Woodley confirmed the news in an EW interview and will appear in the third film. She had only shot a couple days worth of work, so the footage cut is not that much and director Marc Webb has said the decision was made so more focus could be put on Peter Parker’s (Andrew Garfield) relationship with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone).
Aside from Garfield and Stone, Jamie Foxx joined the cast as the villain Electro.

For those excited to see the introduction of Peter Parker's (Andrew Garfield) ultimate love interest, Mary Jane Watson, in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," be prepared for a long wait. Though actress Shailene Woodley was cast in the role, the part has been cut from the movie.
The revelation comes from Woodley herself, who spoke to Entertainment Weekly. "Of course I'm bummed," she says, "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."
The issue seems to be that there's just too much. In addition to Peter's girlfriend, Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), Felicity Jones sort of confirmed that she would be playing another love interested for Spider-Man, Black Cat. With those two already on deck, it may be wise to not waste the introduction of Mary Jane on an already packed movie. »
There will be no hard knocks for Sandra Bullock. One week after TheWrap reported that Bullock was in negotiations to star in the upcoming remake of "Annie" as Miss Hannigan, TheWrap brings word that Bullock passed on the film. TheWrap: cornering the market on Bullock's "Annie" role since June 12, 2013.
If Bullock had agreed to star in "Annie," she would have joined Quvenzhane Wallis and Jamie Foxx in the musical. Miss Hannigan was played memorably by Carol Burnett in the 1982 film version of "Annie"; more recently, Jane Lynch played the character on Broadway.

If that headline sounds dirty, that's the idea. In what seems like a strange bit of pseudo-marketing for White House Down, co-stars Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum have reunited for a spectacular music video for their parody song (I Wanna) Channing All Over Your Tatum. If you don't know what we're talking about, the two actors performed this song on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" following the Oscars earlier this year. Now they have guests like Tatum's Magic Mike co-star Olivia Munn, Precious lead Gabourey Sidibe, Miley Cyrus, and regular Kimmel target Matt Damon bringing the song to life. Watch it now! Here's (I Wanna) Channing All Over Your Tatum from "Jimmy Kimmel Live," via The Film Stage: White House Down is directed by action mastermind Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, Godzilla, The Patriot, The Day After Tomorrow, 2012, Anonymous) from a screenplay written by James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man, The Losers, Zodiac). In the film, »
