All the Spider-Man fans are eagerly waiting for the release of the second trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home next week. Ever since the movie started production, there have been numerous reports, news, rumors, and theories on a lot of returning characters from previous Spider-Man movies that were directed by Sam Raimi and Marc Webb, respectively.
So far, it was confirmed that some characters from previous Spider-Man movies will return, but most of them were only about the villains. Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock, Jamie Foxx’s Electro, Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin, Thomas Haden Church’s Sandman, and JK Simmons’ JJ Jameson (if you consider him a villain) – they were confirmed so far. Fans are also manifesting the return of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in their respective Spider-Man roles, although Marvel and Sony are still silent about it, and Garfield and the current Spider-Man star Tom Holland denied those rumors. We’ll just have to wait and see about that one.
But, one of the characters that definitely won’t make a comeback is Mary Jane Watson, who was played by Kirsten Dunst in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. Now, according to Variety, Dunst would love to play MJ Watson again.
“I would do it. Why not? That would be fun. I would never say no to something like that. I’d be old MJ at this point with little Spidey babies.”
Dunst debuted as MJ Watson in the 2002 movie Spider-Man, starring Tobey Maguire. She was Peter’s secret love, and Peter never found the courage to tell her how he feels, at least until the sequel. Dunst played the role in all three movies with Tobey Maguire.
In Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, although Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy was the titular character’s main love interest, Shailene Woodley was also cast as Mary Jane in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Unfortunately, her scene was cut from the movie, and she never had a chance to reprise the role since The Amazing Spider-Man 3 never happened.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will hit theaters on December 17.
