It Ain't Over Yet - Kirsten Dunst Back for Spider-Man 4 and 5!
Am the only one who thought it was all over when Spider-Man 3 came out? I thought that there's no way everyone will come back and make another. I thought that there's no way they can clean themselves up after this kind of mess. I thought that there really wasn't any more of the story to be told. But I guess I was wrong. It ain't over yet! We all saw the news about Tobey Maguire and Sam Raimi coming back to make Spider-Man 4 and 5 back-to-back, but what about that sweet Mary Jane Watson? Well, Kirsten Dunst leaked to MTV recently that she will return for both films. "I'm in" is all she said, before quickly changing her response to "I'm not saying anything." It sounds like Sony is sparing no expense.
The funny thing is that Dunst was always the one who has hardest to convince to return during the first three. And now she seems anxious to return again - maybe it's the money? Additionally, I think Dunst is one of the actors who could've been replaced and it wouldn't have mattered. Like The Dark Knight before it, replacing Dunst might have actually helped the movie gain more appreciation. By the third movie, she was one of the weakest links. So my question still stands: with Raimi, Maguire, and Dunst all returning, will they really even be able to clean themselves up after the "mess" that was Spider-Man 3? Are we going to see a revamp or another cheesy continuation of a film that should have been a bittersweet finale.
