Spider-Man star Kirsten Dunst remains hopeful for a return as Mary Jane Watson in the future.

With Tobey Maguire’s return as Spider-Man in No Way Home, fans and actors alike are wondering what the future holds for other characters from the past. Kirsten Dunst is one of them, who has previously shared that she is game to play Mary Jane Watson once again.

Tobey Maguire wanted to keep details about his character’s life after Spider-Man 3 minimal in No Way Home, but his Peter does allude to marriage with Mary Jane Watson in the film. Kirsten Dunst doesn’t appear to be shying away from wanting to reprise her Spider-Man role, telling Deadline the following:

“There’s still time. I mean, listen, no one’s asked me about anything, but I do think that, I mean, this Multi Universe keeps going on and on so I feel like that could happen. I know nothing, by the way.”

Here is the synopsis for Spider-Man: No Way Home:

For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero’s identity is revealed, bringing his Super Hero responsibilities into conflict with his normal life and putting those he cares about most at risk. When he enlists Doctor Strange’s help to restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, releasing the most powerful villains who’ve ever fought a Spider-Man in any universe. Now, Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will not only forever alter his own future but the future of the Multiverse.

Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, No Way Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, J.B. Smoove, Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Benedict Wong, Benedict Cumberbatch, Willem Dafoe, Alfred Molina, and Jamie Foxx, Andrew Garfield, Tobey Maguire, and Tom Hardy.
