Kirsten Dunst Talks Mary Jane & 'Spider-Man 2'

Kirsten Dunst, who will be reprising her role as Mary Jane in The Amazing Spider-Man, has been speaking with SciFi-Wire about what we can expect.

"She's going to be a much stronger woman and empowered by herself and her sexuality and her choices in life. She's going to be a very strong woman."

"I felt that Mary Jane was a little insecure in the beginning and didn't know what she wanted." adds Dunst. "Now she's taking hold of her life and her decisions and not letting Peter [Tobey Maguire] dictate how their relationship should go."

Dunst said that she had met with director Sam Raimi and the screenwriters, before the script had been written. "[They] asked where I saw my character going and what I wanted," she 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."
