Kirsten Dunst who portrayed Mary Jane Watson throughout Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy caught up with ScreenJunkies and shared her thoughts on why she thinks the fourth installment didn't work out and also praised the upcoming reboot, and it's new star Andrew Garfield.
“I feel like it was time, you know,” stated Dunst “Sometimes they always want to push things for money reasons or whatever and it just didn’t come together the way they probably had wanted or envisioned. I like Andrew Garfield so much as an actor and Emma Stone so I think they’ll be great in the new version.” “I felt like what we had during those films was so special, like me and Tobey and Sam. It was such a unique experience and also because it was these independent minds and actors and you’re making this huge film. It’s great that all these kids are such huge fans and to be a part of a movie like that is very special, especially a good franchise. So to end on 3 I think is the perfect way to leave it." No hard feelings, she says she’ll still be a fan of the new Spidey movies. “Of course I’m going to see the movie. Of course."
No actress has reportedly been cast as Mary Jane Watson in Marc Webb's reboot with reports claiming the character won't be appearing at all. However, Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, and Sally Field are set to star, with Zooey Deschanel & Chris Zylka speculated. Filming begins next month and the re-boot hits theaters July 3, 2012 in 3D. Marvel recently turned heads with their recent news that they will Kill Peter Parker in Comic format as Spiderman in 2011.
