If there is almost everyone in “Spider-Man: No Way Home”, there is however an actress who did not return, the famous Kirsten Dunst. But the actress says she is ready to resume her cult role of Mary Jane Watson in the future.
Spider-Man : No Way Home – the mind-blowing MCU reunion
On December 15, Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) fans had the joy of discover the incredible Spider-Man : No Way Home. Directed by Jon Watts, the feature film is an opportunity to offer viewers a historic reunion. Indeed, the film decides to bring back many characters from the ancient sagas dedicated to the weaver. So, Dr. Octopus, The Lizard, Electro, The Green Goblin and The Sandman are all back to play bad tricks on our friend Peter Parker. But the latter will be able to count on the unexpected and exceptional help of two other Spider-Men. A simply historic meeting which thus generated more $ 1.5 billion in box office revenue.
Where’s Mary Jane?
But among all these returns, some characters have not been integrated into the story. This is the case for example of Mary Jane Watson, the great love of Peter Parker version Tobey Maguire. For a time, there were rumors that the character played by Kirsten Dunst in the Sam Raimi trilogy would return in No Way Home. It turned out not to be. However, the actress is not closed to a return. In a recent interview with People Magazine, Kirsten Dunst said she would be absolutely delighted to reprise the role of Mary Jane Watson:
Of course I would. Sure. I have been asked the question several times. It is obvious. It was a big part of my career, and of my life.
If the character is absent from No Way Home, maybe he’ll have a place in the MCU’s future. The events spawned by Jon Watts’ film are going to have profound consequences for future MCU films (including Doctor Strange in the Multivers of Madness). It is therefore not impossible that some characters like Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Men may reappear.
So the same goes for Kirsten Dunst, and her iconic character of Mary Jane Watson, which has not reappeared in the cinema since Spider-Man 3 in 2007. Shailene Woodley was slated to play the character in The Amazing Spider-Man: Hero’s Fate, while waiting for a more important role in The Amazing Spider-Man 3, but his participation in Marc Webb’s film was cut during the editing. The rest we know, there has never been a third opus, and Sony preferred to produce a new saga led by Tom Holland.
