London, (ANI): Actress Kirsten Dunst is convinced that the new
Spiderman star Andrew Garfield and her replacement, Emma
Stone, will 'be great" in the rebooted superhero franchise.
Dunst starred as Spiderman/Peter Parker's love interest Mary
Jane Watson in three films, opposite Tobey Maguire, but both actors
and director Sam Raimi quit earlier this year. Movie bosses
subsequently announced plans to bring the franchise back with a new
young cast, hiring Garfield to play the title role and Stone to
take over Dunst's character.
She is adamant that casting chiefs made the right choice and
she's convinced the reboot will be a phenomenal success.
"I like Andrew Garfield so much as an actor - and Emma Stone -
so I think they'll be great in the new version," the Daily Express
quoted her as telling Screen Junkies. And when asked whether she
would go to see the new blockbuster, Dunst replied, "Of course I'm
going to see the movie! Of course."
The upcoming untitled Spider-Man film will be directed by Marc
Webb and is due for release in July 2012.
