Kirsten Dunst slams Spider-Man reboots: 'They're milking that cow for money'

British star Holland now takes over the mantle in yet another new Spider-Man film, this time directed by Jon Watts.

Revealing her disdain she told Marie Claire magazine that the reboots could not compete with the original films. She told Varietyshe doesn't care about the new films, because "Everyone likes our Spider-Man". She was interviewed for Marie Claire this week and was asked about the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe tie-in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and had some pretty harsh things to say.

Kirsten Dunst played a mean Mary Jane Watson in Sami Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy back in the early 2000s, so why make another reboot? "And it's fun, it makes it more amusing because he doesn't really know what to do with them, how to use them, when to use them, and it's just a very different, grounded version of what I think superhero movies are". The figures include Spider-Man in his classic and homemade costumes, The Vulture, and of course, Tony Stark/Iron Man. "It's so obvious", she continued, "You know what I mean?" C'mon, am I right or what?

They only made two films in that franchise, both received mixed reviews, and Garfield's reluctance to commit to a third film led to Sony firing him.

"A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Listen, I'd rather be in the first ones than the new ones". The Sony Pictures Entertainment film will release in India on July 7.
