Kirsten Dunst talks about her disliked Spider-Man set nickname and her plan to go back to superhero movies

Spread MCU News

Star of the Spider-Man trilogy Kirsten Dunst is open to going back into the genre even if she has some bad memories of working on the movie. Kirsten Dunst made her screen debut as Mary Jane Watson in Sam Raimi’s 2002 film Spider-Man, which starred Tobey Maguire as the movie’s main web-slinger. She would make appearances in the sequels in 2004 and 2007 before branching out into different genres. During an interview, Dunst paused to consider the Spider-Man flicks, mentioning how uneasy she felt about a moniker that someone had given her on production. Though Dunst said that, as a young woman in Hollywood many years before the MeToo movement, she felt at the time that she had no option but to accept it, she now wishes she had spoken out at the time. “It was a joke, but on Spider-Man, they would sometimes call me ‘girly-girl’ on the walkie-talkie,” Dunst clarified. “On the set, we need girly-girls.” I didn’t say anything like, “Don’t call me that,” though. You remained silent. You simply stole it.

If Dunst ever returns to the world of superhero films is one unanswered issue. Given how previous co-star Tobey Maguire returned as his version of Peter Parker in the successful film Spider-Man: No Way Home, if that’s the case, she would be following her team from the Spider-Man trilogy. Sam Raimi, who also made a comeback to Marvel, directed Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the sequel. In response, Dunst stated that she would be open to going back into the genre, especially considering how much the money would help her family.

“Yes, considering your high salary and the fact that I provide for my mother and my two kids,” Dunst responded directly to the question of whether she would participate in another superhero movie. Additionally, Kirsten Dunst disclosed that she deliberately withdrew from the genre following Spider-Man 3. She said that if she had “capitalised off the Spider-Man thing,” she would have been a “movie-star-movie-star.” In doing so, Dunst hinted that she could have gotten overly well-known in Hollywood and thus not been able to compete for the parts she truly desired to play. Dunst said, “That’s great for some people.” “It’s not the artist that I want to be.”
