Well, now that the news has broken that both Raimi and Maguire have signed back on for a fourth and fifth installment — with a hefty paycheck attached as well — MTV News posed the big question to Dunst while she was promoting her upcoming film, “How to Lose Friends and Alienate People” with Simon Pegg. Is she in or is she out?
“I’m in,” said the actress matter of factly. However, when pressed to make the announcement official, Dunst quickly changed her tone, and rather cryptically added, “I’m not saying anything, I know there’s rumors…”
So while Dunst wasn’t quite ready to make any announcements, her “How to Lose Friends” co-star, Pegg, took the opportunity to break some [non]-news of his own.
“I’m in ’Spider-Man!'” joked Pegg. “I play Mary Jane’s brother. He comes to New York from the university, and he says, ’Hey, what are you doing hanging out with that web-crawler?'”
So what say you, Splash Page Spidey fans? Think Dunst will don the red wig again as Mary Jane? Or do you think the franchise can manage without her? Let’s hear your thoughts in the comments below.
