Kristen Dunst has yet to see the latest Spider-Man movie. The 39-year-old actress has just received the SAG nomination but has yet to catch up on the Spider-Man universe, which she was once a part of.
Kirsten is aware that her Spider-Man costar Tobey Maguire is making a comeback to the Sony/Marvel hit movie.
Dunst, who played Mary Jane Watson, Peter Parker's love interest in the Spider-Man trilogy nearly 20 years ago, also would not mind appearing in the next installment of the superhero saga. She said:
"I would do it. Why not? That would be fun. I would never say no to something like that."
Jokingly, the actress told People magazine that she was sorry for not seeing Spider-Man No Way Home:
"I haven't. I'm sorry!"
She expressed that she wants to see the movie with her son, who is now interested in superheroes. Kirsten explained:
"I know I have to. I know Tobey's in it, and it's such a huge surprise, and everyone's freaking out. I will. I'll eventually watch it. You know, I'll watch it with my son because he's starting to get into Spider-Man stuff. There's, like, a little-kid version of Spider-Man that he watches, so maybe he'll watch it with me."
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield followed Dunst and Maguire, and now it is time for Zendaya and Tom Holland to shine.
Kirsten, who plated in the superhero movies Spider-Man (2002), Spider-Man 2 (2004), and Spider-Man 3 (2007), is pleased that people are enjoying them:
"I saw a reaction video [from a No Way Home screening] that someone sent me, and I was like, 'Oh my God!' People really needed this right now — more than ever."
While the actress undoubtedly supports the franchise, she is also among the most in-demand stars. Her latest hit, The Power of the Dog, is a western drama, as far away from the Marvel Universe as possible. It is currently on Netflix.
However, she says that Spider-Man movies are part of her success, and she loves the upside-down kiss from the first Spider-Man movie:
"I'm proud to be a part of that. It looked like a great kiss."
We agree, it was one of the best on-screen kisses in the 2000s, imitated in numerous shows and films.
