Spider-Man Star Kirsten Dunst Wants To Return As Mary Jane

It's a heck of a time to be a Spider-Man fan. Spider-Man: No Way Home finally arrives in cinemas in just two weeks, and it looks set to be the ultimate celebration of the last 20 years of Spidey movies.


We already know that a number of key players from the original Sam Raimi movies - including Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina) and Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe) - are set to return. It's also all but confirmed at this point that Tobey Maguire himself will be donning the webs one last time. That's a pretty exciting reunion, and one the original Mary Jane Watson herself would love to get in on.

Take a look at Spider-Man: No Way Home in action below!



Kirsten Dunst played MJ alongside Tobey Maguire's Peter Parker in the Sam Raimi trilogy from 2002 to 2007. Despite having the misfortune of being kidnapped and traumatized by unhinged villains at the end of all three movies, she kept going back to Peter. Theirs truly is an iconic relationship. I mean, if Willem Dafoe threw me off a bridge just because my partner had pissed him off, I'd probably have left town.

While it's not yet known whether or not Dunst will make an appearance in No Way Home, she has expressed an interest in joining the MCU as an older MJ.

“I wish they’d put me in another one,” Dunst said of the Spidey films in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “Like, old-girl Mary Jane—why not? I would do [another superhero movie]. Everybody else is!”


It'd certainly be fascinating to see Dunst return to the genre after all this time. When last we saw her in a superhero movie, it's fair to say the adaptations that fully embraced the colour and bombast of comic books were still not being taken entirely seriously by the masses. These days, thanks to the MCU, you can't move for superheroes that fully embrace their wacky origins. Everybody wants a piece of the pie, and Dunst should get hers.
