Spider-Man: No Way Home, Kirsten Dunst returning as Mary Jane


Kirsten Dunst says she is ready to play Mary Jane in the upcoming Spider-Man film if she is offered the role. While speculation is high that Tobey Maguire may return in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Kirsten Dunst has said that she is set to return as Mary Jane Watson in the new Spider-Man universe.

The actor played Peter Parker/Spider-Man’s love interest Mary Jane in three Spider-Man films – Spider-Man (2002), Spider-Man 2 (2004), and Spider-Man 3 (2007). Speaking with Variety, Kirsten Dunst said, “I would do it. Why not? That would be fun. I would never say no to something like that.” She then joked, “I’d be old MJ at this point with little Spidey babies.”

While she is set to return, Kirsten previously clarified that she will not appear as the superhero in the upcoming Spider-Man film starring Tom Holland. Speaking with Total Film, as reported by The Direct, the actor said, “I’m not in that movie, no. I know there’s rumors, right?… No, I’m the only one [not in it]. ‘Can’t put an old girl in there!”

Her co-star Tobey Maguire, on the other hand, is yet to react to the claims. Rumors of his appearance in the film were fueled after a photo reportedly from Spider-Man: No Way Home was leaked online and it featured Toby in his superhero suit. The film is also believed to feature Andrew Garfield of The Amazing Spider-Man.

Meanwhile, Kirsten spoke with The Independent UK earlier this week about Spider-Man, saying, “The pay disparity between me and Spider-Man was very extreme. I didn’t even think about it. I was just like, ‘Oh yeah, Tobey [Maguire] is playing Spider-Man.’ But you know who was on the cover of the second Spider-Man poster? Spider-Man and ME.”
