SCI FI Wire chatted with Spider-Man 4 director Sam Raimi, who said that he’s meeting soon with Kirsten Dunst to talk about her reprising the role of Mary Jane Watson. “I think she would like to. But I don’t want to speak on behalf of her,” he said.
He was also asked if the recent darker and edgier superhero movies will influence the fourth installment. “I hope we don’t react to these very good and sometimes bad superhero movies around us. I hope that we just [look] ever deeper into the truth of who Peter Parker really isas a human being and the unique character, and that we celebrate that, which is a lot of the reason I want to make this next picture. I still believe I have an understanding of Peter Parker as the character that I have not quite put onto the screen yet,” he said.
