Spider-Man fans aren’t alone, as Kirsten Dunst too wanted to do a fourth film with Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire. Of course, there were plans for the director to make Spider-Man 4 for several years following the release of the not-so-beloved Spider-Man 3 in 2007. The idea was to have everyone involved, for the most part. But then suddenly it was announced in 2010 that Spider-Man 4 would not be moving forwards after all, and that Sony would instead be rebooting the franchise.
But just because Dunst has gone on to have a successful career post-Spider-Man, doesn’t mean she doesn’t regret her run as Mary Jane Watson being cut short. In fact, during a recent chat with the media, Dunst revealed that she still wishes that Spider-Man 4 had happened, taking the chance to express how much she genuinely enjoyed working with Raimi and Maguire on the films.
It is worth mentioning that most comic book fans still consider Spider-Man 2 to be one of the best films in the history of the genre on the big screen, even if the follow-up wound up being a disappointment.
