Comics2Film Wrap for April 7th, 2003

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

Kirsten Dunst told SCI
FI Wire
that she hopes to see her character grow in the sequel to
“Spider-Man.”

“She’s going to be a much stronger woman and empowered by herself and
her sexuality and her choices in life,” Dunst told SCI FI. “She’s
going to be a very strong woman.”

The actress said that the filmmakers sat down with her last year and let her
have story input with regards to her Mary Jane. “[They] asked where I saw
my character going and what I wanted,” Dunst said. “And they gave it
to me. That’s really nice, to be able to change things and to really be
creatively involved in where you want your character to go. … I think it’s
going to be better than the first one, for sure.”

While the original movie left Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker breaking things
off with the super-model-to-be, Dunst said fans shouldn’t expect her character
to stand for that. Mary Jane will be active in deciding where the relationship
with Peter goes.

Cameras roll on “The Amazing Spider-Man” this month.
