By now you heard the rumors of Sony cutting the character of Mary Jane (Shailene Woodley) from the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2. While all reports were just based on speculation and internal rumblings, now comes the official word, as plans are to introduce Peter Parker’s long-time love in the following sequel: Amazing Spider-Man 3.

We all anticipated this a few weeks back, but what we didn’t expect to hear was the exact reason why. Do you really wanna know? Spoiler alert up ahead:

“Emma Ston’s character dies in the next film and that really would take a bunch out of the film if Spider-Man all the suddent starts dating a new girl so close to an important character’s death. They were noticing this occurring as they filmed Shailene’s scenes. They want to make the death of Gwen Stacy really mean something and then it will leave room for Shailene to shine in the third film.”

Adios Gwen. Was good while it lasted. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters April 17, 2014.
