Dunst is "In" for Spidey 4 & 5

The always screeching Mary Jane Watson will be back in Spider-Man 4 & 5 and word from can mouth her self is, that MJ will continue to be played by Kristen Dunst. Kristen Dunst was asked at a recent screening of "How to Lose Friens & Alienate People" if she in fact would be back in the role of MJ. Dunst was very back and forth in her comments to say the least. She told MTV, "I'm in." She then quickly retorted and followed up by saying, “I’m not saying anything, I know there’s rumors…” Cryptic to say the least, sounds like she doesn't want to spill the beans prematurely.

It definately looks like Dunst wants to be back in the role and I assume Sony will want her back as well. But, could it be that Sony has bought in to the idea of a someone else playing MJ? I really hope so! I can't stand Dunst and think her only piece of work that was worth anything was "The Virgin Suicides" and I know I am not the only one. All she did in he Spider-Man films was get in the way. There is bound to be another far better actress that could assume the role and fans wouldn't miss a beat. Overall though let's face it, not too many roles have come her way since Spider-Man 3, so I am sure she is chomping at the bit to get back to work and get a real paycheck. With Raimi and Maguire back on board for the next two, I'm sure she wants in too.

What are your thoughts on Dunst back as MJ? Should Sony sign her for the next two or find a new MJ? Can MJ die already?
