Sony Milking The ‘Spider-Man’ Franchise? Kirsten Dunst Thinks So.

Since 2001, Sony has released a total of five Spider-Man movies. Now, with the Marvel cinematic universe in full swing, the company decided to loan Marvel Studios the rights to the character and let them create films using him. While most think it’s great that Spidey is finally “home”, Kirsten Dunst, who played the original Mary Jane, disagrees.

While speaking with Marie Claire, the actress revealed that she’s not a fan of the new Spider-Man films.

“We made the best ones, so who cares? I’m like, ‘You make it all you want.’ They’re just milking that cow for money. It’s so obvious. You know what I mean?”

Do you agree with Dunst? If not, which Spider-Man movie is your favorite? Sound off in the comments below.


Spider-Man: Homecoming features Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Donald Glover, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr., Jon Favreau, Tyne Daly, Tony Revolori, Bokeem Woodbine, and Hannibal Buress.

“A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.”

Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters on July 7.
