Here’s Why Kirsten Dunst Is Desperate To Join Marvel’s Multiverse

The end of 2021 marked the beginning of a new phase in the MCU, one that appears to be more concerned with the Multiverse than before. When Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Men were brought back into the mix, it emphasized this tenfold, bringing together two decades of Spider-Man films into one epic culmination. Despite these celebrity appearances, it was rumored that others would join in the fun.

Mary Jane Watson and Gwen Stacy were both rumored to be returning for the threequel a year before its release. When Dunst was spotted for possible reshoots a year after the first rumour, she added fuel to the fire, even though she had no intention of doing so.

NWH was released just a few months later. And Dunst’s statement that she wasn’t in the film was proved correct. She continues to express interest in joining the MCU, just as she has before.

Kirsten Dunst, who played Mary Jane Watson in Sony’s original Spider-Man trilogy, pleaded for inclusion in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Multiverse during an interview with Backstage.

“I’ll probably stay in the less-structured zone of acting and filmmaking… I like when it feels alive… The jobs that don’t pay you are the best ones.”

In terms of acting and filmmaking, I think I’ll stick to the more free-form side of things. It’s better when it’s alive to me… The best jobs are often those that don’t pay well.

“I feel like [I’m] the only one that hasn’t joined it,” Dunst said when the subject of Spider-Man came up.

“You know I’d join that multiverse! I feel like I’m the only one that hasn’t joined it. I’m like, ‘Please put me in. Put me in the lineup.’ I need to pay for my house and kids.”

Is There a Dunst, Stone, and Zendaya Combo in the Works?

A Women Multiverse?

After previously declaring her willingness to return to the Spider-Man franchise, actress Kirsten Dunst has done so once again. After the release of No Way Home, she said her return was a “no-brainer” and even hinted at a reunion with Tobey Maguire. This is a project that Dunst is very excited about, and it’s easy to see why. For what reason should it be impossible for the three Spider-Men to form a romantic alliance?

Rewrites to No Way Home’s script meant that The Amazing Spider-Emma Man’s Stone was no longer in the running. That, however, should not be taken as a long-term indicator of her inability to return. Gwen Stacy was killed off in 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but the Multiverse offers countless opportunities for Stone to return. However, Zendaya’s MJ is almost certainly here to stay; her upcoming arc in Spider-Man 4 was teased in the official No Way Home script.

Even if they didn’t know it, viewers and fans could see a Dunst and Stone and Zendaya team-up on the big screen before they knew it. For the time being, Dunst’s excitement about returning as Mary Jane Watson should suffice to keep fans interested.
