Kirsten Dunst has made her feelings about the new Spider-Man movies – including the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming as well as the Andrew Garfield outings of The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – very clear.
Dunst took on the role of Mary Jane Watson, Peter Parker aka Spider-Man’s love interest, in the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man trilogy (released between 2002 and 2007), and it remains her most iconic role.
While promoting her latest movie, The Beguiled, directed by Sofia Coppola which she stars in opposite Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell, the actress was interviewed by Variety.
Dunst admitted she wished they could have made a fourth Spider-Man movie, but when asked about Sony’s reboot of the series, she plainly answered: “I don’t care.”
She admitted that she hasn’t seen the latest instalment but insisted on the original movie outings being best: “Everyone likes our ‘Spider-Man.’ C’mon, am I right or what? Listen, I’d rather be in the first ones than the new ones.”
There can only be one Mary Jane Watson.
