“I’d be old MJ at this point with the little Spideys.”
Part of one of the most iconic kisses in film history that has been analyzed and idolized for years, Kirsten Dunst says it won’t be in the next one “Spider-Man: No Way Home” sequel, but would like to return as Mary Jane Watson.
He might even be totally lying. Marvel (and superhero movies in general) are notoriously tight-lipped about casting surprises, twists and turns, and Dunst wouldn’t be the first to lie about their involvement in an MCU project.
While she may not be a part of the new movie – and we’re not entirely sure yet – it has at least been confirmed that one of her and her Spidey (Tobey Maguire) the main villains will come in the form of by Alfred Molina Doctor Octopus.
Fans love a crossover, so if there are plans for “No Way Home 2” or “Into the Spider-Verse” live, Dunst is ready to play Spidey’s love interest at any time. “I would. Why not? It would be fun,” Dunst said Variety at the first screening of his new film “The Power of the Dog”.
“I would never say no to such a thing”, he added, before joking, “at this point I would be the old MJ with the little Spideys.”
Dunst is now 39 and has two children. He had just turned 20 when the original “Spider-Man” hit theaters in 2002. He went on to star opposite Maguire in two more sequels until 2007.
Along with Molina’s Doctor Octopus, other Maguire / Dunst-era villains that may appear include by Willem Dafoe Green elf, by James Franco “New” Goblin, Thomas Haden Church’s Sandman or even by Topher Grace Venom – although the latter is not really necessary!
Green Goblin is expected to appear in “No Way Home”, but it has not been made clear who will be under the mask.
The film also features at least one villain of by Andrew Garfield run like the “Amazing” wall crawler, Jamie Foxx ‘ Electro, so it could be Dane DeHaan, who played Harry Osborn / Green Golbin in “Amazing 2”.
This, of course, opens the door to Rhys Ifan’s Lizard and Paul Giamatti’s Rhino, as well as additional versions of Gwen Stacy (Bryce Dallas Howard in OG and Emma Stone in “Amazing”). Shailene Woodley also shot some “amazing” footage as MJ, but none of them made it into the final cut.
Will MJ from Zendaya meet any of her counterparts? Spidey by Tom Holland? Fans will have to wait until “Spider-Man: No Way Home” hits theaters on December 17th to find out because we doubt they’ll screw it up in the trailers.
