Kirsten Dunst Would Play Mary Jane Again In Spider-Man Films If Asked
Kirsten Dunst might not be attached to No Way Home yet, but the rumors certainly exist. Like everyone who has appeared in a Spider-Man film so far, the actress is rumored to be making an appearance in the upcoming MCU film. Who isn’t at this point, right? It’s not as outlandish as it seems, especially given Dunst’s opinion on returning to the franchise in some capacity. In a recent interview, Kirsten Dunst suggested she’d love to play Mary Jane again in a future Spider-Man film. Any chance this is a strategic misdirection? Let’s discuss!

With the confirmed appearances of Doc Ock, Electro, and others in Spider-Man: No Way Home, speculation continues to run wild about other returning stars from past films. Of course, there’s the rumor that all three Spider-Men showing up as well as others from the Tobey McGuire and Andrew Garfield-starring films. Why not throw in another mainstay of the original Spider-Man trilogy: Mary Jane Watson.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Mary Jane actress Kirsten Dunst suggested she’d love another shot at a Spider-Man movie. “I wish they’d put me in another one,” she said. “Like, old-girl Mary Jane — why not? I would do . Everybody else is!” While that sounds optimistic, it could also be a misdirection that leads some to believe she hasn’t been approached already. Furthermore, some speculation even says she’ll show up in the new film releasing later this month.
If we get the likes of Kirsten Dunst and even Amazing Spider-Man star Emma Stone, this could be a full-fledged reunion of the multiverse. It’s worth noting that this would be truly remarkable. I keep reminding myself that Marvel Studios and Sony might just pull off one of the cooler multiverse reunions ever. C’mon: the first Spider-Man film released in 2002. That’s twenty years, two decades, before the new film releasing starring Tom Holland. While we can’t say for sure that she’s making an appearance, it’s exciting to know that the Mary Jane many of us known and love is up for another movie.
