Comics2Film Wrap for April 7th, 2003

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

Kirsten Dunst told SCIFI 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 andher sexuality and her choices in life," Dunst told SCI FI. "She'sgoing to be a very strong woman."

The actress said that the filmmakers sat down with her last year and let herhave story input with regards to her Mary Jane. "[They] asked where I sawmy character going and what I wanted," Dunst said. "And they gave itto me. That's really nice, to be able to change things and to really becreatively involved in where you want your character to go. ... I think it'sgoing to be better than the first one, for sure."

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