SPIDER-MAN Star Kirsten Dunst Reiterates Interest In Playing An "Old Girl" Mary Jane Watson Down The Line

Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy is far behind actress Kirsten Dunst, but she remains interested in reprising the role of Mary Jane Watson or even joining another superhero franchise. Read on for details!

Kirsten Dunst played Mary Jane Watson in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy, and remains an iconic superhero movie love interest. With rumours continuing to swirl that Tobey Maguire will return as Peter Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home, the hope among fans is that we'll get a glimpse into his personal life and see whether the original silver screen wall-crawler got his happy ending with MJ.

That would require a cameo appearance from Dunst, and while she's previously denied being part of the Marvel Studios threequel, the actress isn't against revisiting this role. 

"It seems like a lot of movies I do get remade," Dunst told Entertainment Weekly. "It's like a running theme for me." That's a reference not only to the Spider-Man franchise, but the likes of Jumanji, Little Women, and Interview with the Vampire, all movies Dunst was in the original iterations of.

Reflecting on her "crazy" Spider-Man experience, Dunst says the filmmakers "flew to Germany to audition me" after Maguire suggested she should play MJ. As for a possible future in the role, she added: "I wish they'd put me in another one," the actress admitted. "Like, old-girl Mary Jane...why not? I would do [another superhero movie]. Everybody else is!"

Dunst is clearly enthusiastic about the genre and potentially even returning as MJ, so now we just have to hope she's either already shot a secret Spider-Man: No Way Home cameo or Spider-Man 4 could one day happen. If Maguire really is back, that might be a possibility, but there are plenty of other characters we're sure she could bring to life in the Marvel or DC Universes.

Spider-Man: No Way Home arrives in U.S. on December 17 and in the UK on December 15.
