There have been three cinematic incarnations of Marvel’s Spider-Man. The first was a trilogy of films directed by Sam Raimi featuring Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker. The second iteration was a duo of films directed by Marc Webb and starring Andrew Garfield. Now, Spidey has swung into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is played by Tom Holland – who will appear in Spider-Man: Homecoming directed by Jon Watts.
Kirsten Dunst, who portrayed Mary Jane Watson in the Raimi trilogy recently revealed her thoughts on the current state of the franchise. Dunst feels that the recent reboots of the webhead don’t measure up to the films she starred in:
We made the best ones, so who cares? I’m like, “You make it all you want.” They’re just milking that cow for money. It’s so obvious. You know what I mean?’
Dunst recently discussed that she had no interest in the new Spider-Man films. She expressed her pride in being part of the first cinematic adaptation of the hero.
What do you guys think? Obviously, most fans are pretty excited to see the adventures of Peter Parker as a high school student, but do you favor Maguire and/or Garfield under the mask instead? Sound off in the comments below.
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7, 2017.
