I voted for a reboot. Maguire was an okay Peter Parker but a lousy Spider-Man (I can't think of a single memorable scene exemplifying Spider-Man's wit or taunting) and no way, no how is Dunst even a passable Mary Jane Watson. By any stretch of the imagination. At all.
Yeah, I don't think we see enough of him as Spider-Man. Raimi would rather spend that time having Peter pick his ass in his apartment.

I've had enough Mary Jane for a lifetime. 1 and 2 were great movies, 3 was not good...but specifically Mary Jane is 3 was a total bitch.

Re: Kirsten Dunst "Spider-Man 4" poll

Well, I enjoyed Dunst in the first two movies quite a bit. I had not seen much with her that I enjoyed until I saw How To Lose Friends and Alienate People today and enjoyed her in the movie very much. So, there might be hope that she will be better in the fourth movie.

I want Dunst gone, but I like Toby. I voted for the second option because it was the closest to my opinion.

Re: Kirsten Dunst "Spider-Man 4" poll

How do you feel about Kirsten Dunst being in Spider-Man 4?
Couldn't care less.

I thought both Kirsten Dunst and Tobey Maguire were horribly miscast in the first one and the overall mediocrity of the movie itself pretty much quashed any interest I might have had in watching more Spider-Man movies starring them.

I voted get rid of them and reboot but the poll really needs a "Meh #4" option.

Reboot the hell out of that franchise. Then maybe we can get some good Spider-Man films.

I just saw that movie today too. I thought it was pretty formulaic and didn't have enough bite to it but I thought that Dunst was clearly the best thing about it. (Of course, most of the other actors got less than nothing to work with. Simon Pegg isn't 1/10th as funny here as he was in "Hot Fuzz." Jeff Bridges is even blander here than he was in "Iron Man." The only pleasant surprise there was Megan Fox, who shows far more skills than she did as the Barbie doll love interest in "Transformers.")

Still, it doesn't change the fact that Mary Jane was never Dunst's best role.

Indifferent options are for the weak and foster weak polls!

Re: Kirsten Dunst "Spider-Man 4" poll

I voted "MJ played out, needs more Gwen/Felcia"

However that option is only the closest to and not accurate of my thoughts. It was just better than the other two.

MJ is not played out as a character but with Dunst back the character is ripe for a minor role. Something along the lies of what they've done in comics which is to ship her off to LA or Europe for modeling/acting stints.
Its then perfectly set up for Gwen/Felcia to move in and toy with our Spiders affections.

MJ will always be Peters soul mate, just not played by Kirsten "coke head" Dunst.

Re: Kirsten Dunst "Spider-Man 4" poll

I vote Reboot.

Love the Spidey comics, dislike the movies. They're teen soap operas with ten minutes of action in them. I want to see a wise-cracking Spidey portrayed by someone with humor and charisma, and a crowded world in which there is more than just Spidey and the movie villain; bring on the C-list villain cameos! Why not open the movie with Spidey beating up the Shocker or something?

Re: Kirsten Dunst "Spider-Man 4" poll

They made the same movie 3 times, now it will be 4. I didn't like any of them and Dundst and McGuire crying and whining for 2 hours grows old fast. But my 8 year old son loves them.

If I have to see McGuire "emote" one more time I'm going to strangle kittens.

Spider-Man's only got a 4" pole?

What does Dunst see in him?

Re: Kirsten Dunst "Spider-Man 4" poll

Why can't the movie have both MJ & Gwen---the comics did.
